Sudden upsurge of interest in my blog - yesterday I had almost 1000 hits (my usual average is a couple of hundred). Now I feel obliged to start posting interesting, erudite comments so that everyone is impressed. Watch out for a fascinating entry on the Deissmann-Turner debate regarding the Greek of the NT - it's a thriller! And maybe we'll have to have the Indiana Jones-esque story of the discovery of Codex Sinaiticus. Yes, I'm making some progress with the NT reading course language and textual criticism sections. But right now I'm finalising lesson plans for NT 010 Greek a that starts on Monday.
Maybe this time I'll actually learn the alphabet in the right order. I have a sampler somewhere that has both Greek and Hebrew alphabets, sewn from memory, both with errors in them. Pathetic. But it'll make for some interesting textual criticism in a couple of thousand years time, don't you think?
