Thank You Trevor Peterson for your references on Orthros. I appreciate both
the time and effort you took. Thank you also Albert Pietersman for your
words of advice. I will study these passages in context. I really am excited
about learning NT greek. I have already learned German so I can study German
works on Biblical Subjects, although it is only at a high school level.
Greek is next on my list. What prompted this latest question was the
apparent contradiction that said Mary came to the tomb while it was yet dark
(John 20:1) and the phrase "early morning" in Luke 24:1 that indicated a
presunrise visit to the tomb. However, Mark claims the son was already
risen. So, to reconcile this problem I resolved to study it in as many texts
I know for some odd reason John uses the present tense in the resurrection
narrative, and I cannot figure why. It's almost as if he is telling a story.
I know this because I have Wigrams' Englishman' concordance of the Greek
text and a Greek parsing book from professor Kurt Aland. These books are
invaluable to me in learning the Greek text. I am trying to learn the
prologue of John 1 by heart before I even attend my first class.
