I will update my profile soon, but for now...

- i'm a Christian since 1974

- was ordained during the gulf war

- began formal studies in 1977 and still do research, teach, write, and make many mistakes

- became disabled during first gulf conflict

- became a wheelchair user in 2002 from injuries in Kuwait and other sandy places

- have an outreach ministry to my fellow disabled veterans

 

have one grandchild, and one on the way; son in college to become a crime scene investigator - to graduate soon and get snapped up by either the government, a university, or some law enforcement agency - yes soon to be gone...

 

member of numerous church organizations, veterans organizations, and aside from books and other stuff, I collect paper stuff that says I "done good" in college or "done graduated"

 

even writ some books; one is "He Touched Me" (on amazon) and another "Christian Antiquity"  (maybe amazon, lambert publishing)

anyhow, I truly love to meet other folks, tell them about Christ, answer questions, ask questions, and complain (just ask my wife or the rest of the family)

 

and i'm always so very proud and happy to add to my family in Christ

I study and teach NT Greek

Χαῖρε  Ὦ ἀδελφέ,

 

Χαῖρε σφόδρα ἐν κυρίῳ πάντοτε· πάλιν ἐρῶ, xαῖρε.

 

I used to teach Greek, & I love the language.

 

Nice to make your cyber acquaintance.

Χαῖρε σφόδρα ἐν κυρίῳ πάντοτε· πάλιν ἐρῶ, xαῖρε.

 

 

Hello Brother and Philippians 4:4?

 

Well, it is not an exact quote from Philippians, but it was inspired by Philippians.  I had to change it to singular number, since in Philip it is plural persons addressed.

 

Do you know the chorus, "Rejoice in the Lord always, Again I say rejoice?"

You can sing the following to that tune, though you have to use the singular to fit the meter:

 

Χαῖρε ἐν κυρίῳ πάντοτε· πάλιν ἐρῶ, xαῖρε.

 

And you can sing it as a round.

 

That's a scary outfit in your photo.

Ley, we look forward to reading your posts. I have similar interests but very little knowledge of Greek but for an introduction, and no formal schooling in early church history. But curiosity has given me a smattering of knowledge--probably just enough to tell me how much I don't know. I look forward to the day we can sit at our Master's feet and have all out questions answered more perfectly by Him.
Blessings
Willa

Ummmm . . . now how is that pronounced???

 

Pronounced:

One thing wonderful about Greek is that a lot of the letters are nearly the same as in English; so lets give most attention to those that differ (in the majority of cases it is like a different font, instead of letter (like all these are the same letter in English, but different fonts like:  F, f, f, F f   I give pronunciations:

 

Χαῖρε ἐν κυρίῳ πάντοτε· πάλιν ἐρῶ, xαῖρε.

 

Χ = rough h, like ch in Scottish Loch,

αῖ (here it has an accent on it) = ai in Thailand

αῖ (ignore accent) is the ah sound plus the long e sound (i in machine), run together to sound like long I in English.

 

ρ = r (technically Spanish r)

ε  = e in bet

 

Χαῖρε = Haireh (very rough h at start)

 

ν = n (Greek n looks like a v)

ἐν = en

Χαῖρε ἐν = Haireh en (rejoice in)

 

κ = k

υ = long e with lips formed to make a u -- but just go ahead and pronounce it u in tune

ί (with accent on top) = i in machine

ῳ = long o in boat (it has a little iota hanging under it, which is not pronounced)

ῶ = same letter without the iota & with an accent on top, o in boat

 

κυρίῳ = kureeo (lord)

Χαῖρε ἐν κυρίῳ= Haireh en kureeo (rejoice in [the] Lord)

 

π = p

ά (with accent on top) = ah

ν = n

τ  = t

ο = o

 

πάντοτε = pantote (always)

 

Χαῖρε ἐν κυρίῳ πάντοτε = Haireh en kureeo pantote (rejoice in the Lord always)

 

π = p

ά = ah

λ = l in lemon

ιν = in

 

πάλιν = palin (again) (not Sarah!)

 

ἐρῶ = ero (I will say)

ἐ = e in bet

xαῖρε = haireh

 

Χαῖρε ἐν κυρίῳ πάντοτε· πάλιν ἐρῶ, xαῖρε.

Haireh en kureeo pantote; palin ero haireh.

 

Χαῖρε ἐν κυρίῳ πάντοτε· πάλιν ἐρῶ, xαῖρε.

after singing this line, the next is:

 

Χαῖρε,  xαῖρε· πάλιν ἐρῶ, xαῖρε.

Χαῖρε,  xαῖρε· πάλιν ἐρῶ, xαῖρε.

(rejoice, rejoice, again I will say rejoice)

 

Last line repeats the first:

Χαῖρε ἐν κυρίῳ πάντοτε· πάλιν ἐρῶ, xαῖρε.

 

THE WHOLE CHORUS

Χαῖρε ἐν κυρίῳ πάντοτε· πάλιν ἐρῶ, xαῖρε.

Χαῖρε ἐν κυρίῳ πάντοτε· πάλιν ἐρῶ, xαῖρε.

Χαῖρε,  xαῖρε· πάλιν ἐρῶ, xαῖρε.

Χαῖρε,  xαῖρε· πάλιν ἐρῶ, xαῖρε.

Χαῖρε ἐν κυρίῳ πάντοτε· πάλιν ἐρῶ, xαῖρε.
