    Not in modern Greek. SolEX01 must have slipped up in his post - "Th" is correct.

    "Not Very Orthodox"

    Since I tend to go off forums for months at a time I have no idea if this has been shown here before. However, in light of today's earlier discussion on fasting, I couldn't resist a link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uw-b_NFW3iI Funniest thing I've seen in weeks (and I've a hunch 'Benedict...

    As we await the release of the OSB, I recently found this project and am more than excited about it. I was not sure if this had been debuted here before but a real Orthodox Bible that is ready, albeit as a work-in-process (I might not buy a hard copy quite yet awaiting corrections and the pdfs...
