Hey, that's where my username comes from smile.gif

It's probably the most popular text out there and one that is quite interesting to translate. I never translate "logos" as "word" because it carries a connotation that is so much more.

Let me know if you have any words of interest in this text. I have the Bauer Lexicon, which is the primary standard for definitions and offers a substantial amount of primary source references for useage.

I also have available a Nestle-Aland Greek Text 26th Edition, so I can give you any information regarding the textual variants from there. There are several resources you can find to review the meanings of the textual variant codings.

Too bad/luckily I don't have to translate anything since I'm working from an already-translated version. tongue.gif I can only read English.

I actually recently found out this connotation of Logos that you speak of. ohmy.gif I was doing a rhetorical analysis the other night, and wanted to look up "logos" just for confirmation's sake, and boy, I was taken pleasantly by surprise.

I never translate "logos" as "word" because it carries a connotation that is so much more.

I actually recently found out this connotation of Logos that you speak of. ohmy.gif I was doing a rhetorical analysis the other night, and wanted to look up "logos" just for confirmation's sake, and boy, I was taken pleasantly by surprise.

I am happy to see that you have been enlightened on this smile.gif

That really is more than I'd ever want/need for this exegesis. laugh.gif But thank you very much, as I can have something more to pursue on my own time! *glomps sir arche*

I forget that you're probably doing what is more likely a survey rather than a proper exegesis since this isn't an upper level course. I am glad to help open up the possibilities a bit more.

In reality, exegesis is very technical and boring, but by doing it, it teaches an important lesson. Basically you are doing this type of work on everything you read. It's just easier for you to do this more quickly on things that are in or near your own time/culture. The farther from your own culture you go, the more work it takes to understand what you are reading. Philosophically this leads to the important questions of how we can understand one another. Literarily, this leads to socio-critical analysis of speaker/hearer relationships.

Another point is that you are doing something that many others do not do anymore and that is learn how to do an exegetical study. This gives you an extra element of depth that hopefully will carry into your other studies. I have found that my training in this area has helped me more than I can even articulate in my professional life. A good portion of what I do is exegesis of financial information & business processes.

Anyway, there's my inspirational talk to you to do your best and learn all you can from this arduous and possibly intellectually painful process. If you are interested in more details of the process, or biblical texts in general let me know as I may be able to point you in a good direction for some items.

@Chi-Aww, i hope the pain is gone by now sad.gif

@Tombow-they're right, you HAVE been sick for a while.... *hands virtual chicken noodle soup* happy.gif

@Zarpi- i hope you get your ID tomorrow too happy.gif

@Mustang-i got detention once for chewing gum when i was younger...but...i wasnt chewing gum...i was gnawing on my tongue and on the inside of my cheek....and my teacher said that i swallowed the gum...and so i had to stay after school. Granted, all i did after school was stare at the chalkboard and draw on paper...what a waste of time....

I spent the past two days looking for my original copies of my papers that im working on,,,and i was blowing a fit today bc i seriously tore apart my room, my lab bench....EVERYWHERE looking for the papers., And in the end.,..i found them...i must've looked over them like...10 times...im such an idiot

I <3 the monday nite class that i teach. They are giving presentations in a few weeks, so the head hancho proff (the one above me who grades all their lab reports and whatnot) said that i'm not needed and so she didnt want me to come. But the students all started freaking out when they heard that i may not come to see their presentations, and they all agreed that having me in the room makes them less nervous happy.gif So i'll go....even if my superiors dont really want me there...i'll sneak in the back and hang out in the prep room...

I got a box of assorted Tazo tea just before Thanksgiving. This "Passion: Herbal Infusion" thing tastes funky. And not good-funky, either.
This is what I see about Teto Passion tea at some on-line gurmet coffee beans/tea shop
"Blended with an artistry that borders on magical, Passion is an Herbal Infusion, made of hibiscus flowers, orange peel, rosehips, cinnamon, lemongrass, natural tropical flavors, citric acid, licorice and red poppy.
Even though this type of beverage is often described as an herbal tea, there is actually no tea in it at all. Instead it's a blend of flowers, berries and fruit peels that has been used for centuries to enhance health and well being...
"
Hmm.. Hibiscus flowers and red poppy could be the sourse of this "magic," me thinks.. tongue.gif

My pain did go away. See apart from my feet being small they are also quite flat, so power walking in flat shoes give me intense pain in my shin bone. Alas yesterday I had to wear these shows for my costume. Otherwise I shall avoid them now.

Good morning, all...sort of...

Yahoo says it's currently 39 F. Can it be 39 F with the sun out? I'd like to go out and see for myself. It's probably an error, but if it isn't, it'd be neat.

I'm a little spacey right now. Getting only 3 hours of sleep would do that to me. I'm not even angry at myself of depriving myself of sleep because of the lack of foresight and a terrible bout of procrastination. Not anymore, at least. I don't think I care anymore. That's not good.

Anyway, today's a long day as far as classes go, and I'm really not looking forward to it.

-----------------
Tombow: Ha, I should've figured as much. I remember reading somewhere (during my commodity chain paper, I bet) that "herbal infusions" isn't really tea at all--should've remembered that sooner. It was so bizarre, I made myself a cup of green tea just to settle my taste buds into tea-normalcy.

I wouldn't consider Plushies in the same clas as mints, and noodles and cups. They're a popular and reasonable form of merchandise. They're like a staple of Japanese merchandise. The majority of anime have plushies of their characters. They're no different than plastic dolls or action figures, which are uber popular for any show (or pop sensation >>). I guess plushies are just more common in Japan.

Frankly, I adore plushies, and anything stuffed. Dolls as well for that matter. I suppose my love of plushies just comes from a love of stuffed animals and dolls.

And yes, they have Roy plushies, two kinds that I know of: a small one of Roy from the series, and a 23 cm tall one of him from the movie. There's also a small plush keychain of him which I've sene pictures of but have been unable to find. (I have the Hawkeye plush keychain tho).
and there's the Roy figure.....which I also own XD;;;
