Re: Was OT originally in Greek?

I went to blueletterbible.org and biblehub.com and I discovered that the Hebrew-Greek resemblance is not nearly as great as Ethan claims. Proverbs 23:29 -- Who has woe? Who has sorrow? Who has contentions? Who has complaining? Who has wounds without cause? Who has redness of eyes? (NASB) Greek (LXX)...

Re: Was OT originally in Greek?

That's lame. Look at the details. Greek and Hebrew aren't anything alike, as your examples show.

Re: Was OT originally in Greek?

There is an interesting linguistic quirk in the Septuagint. Many Hebrew proper names in it were indeclinable instead of being forced into Greek noun-declension patterns. The New Testament also carries over this quirk. Indeclinable means that it stays fixed rather than have different noun-case forms....

Re: Was OT originally in Greek?

Words that don't resemble each other very much. What a big load of peresh shor.

Some of the Spanish ones I recognize as being descended from Latin, like:
decir - dicere
saber - sapere
verbo - verbum
libro - liber
escribir - scribere
curso - cursus

Re: Was OT originally in Greek?

I found another Phoenician word in Spanish: the name of the city Cadiz. Its name is derived from Agadir or A Gadir, meaning something like "the walls". Various Greek sources used Ta Gadeira (neuter plural) or sometimes Ta Gêdeira or Hê Gadeira. The Roman name for the city was Gâdês, and the Roman co...

Re: Was OT originally in Greek?

Why is it so easy to find Hebrew-Spanish cognates? Ethan, with your Goropian methods, one can show that any language is close to any other language. All it requires is some imagination. Let's take the definite articles and compare the Arabic and Spanish ones. The Arabic one, al, is uninflected. How...

Re: Was OT originally in Greek?

The Phoenician cultures that dominated the coastlines of Ancient Spain, who founded the first cities in Europe, just a Cadiz, they never existed and had zero influence on Spanish language and cultures and the entire culture of Spain is pedigree Latin?

Re: Was OT originally in Greek?

It is not because it is very very different. The Indo-European family was named that beca...

Greek != Hebrew

Greek is not even close to Hebrew. It's closer to English and Spanish and Russian and Hindi than to Hebrew. As to Hebrew, it's much closer to Arabic than to Greek.
