A hearty εὐχαριστία to Jim Davila at PaleoJudaica, one of my favorite blogs, for mentioning my blog and the recent Greek quiz (see also here, where James McGrath notes our quiz). More than that, Prof Davila reports his results — very courageous! 4/10 – not too shabby for a scholar in Early Judaism!
I speculate that if I had given the quiz to a group of Classics scholars, they would have done better on it, as a result of their wider reading. It’s rather appalling how few NT Greek professors, in my experience, spend any real time reading outside of the NT!
