Week 15 Assignments: New Vocab - Sentences - New Syntax - Recitation - Dictation - Review Vocab - Review Syntax - Composition - Listening - Audio Gallery!


This is a continuation of the story of the prodigal son which you started reading in Week 14. You might need to review that reading so that you are familiar with the vocabulary which recurs here. Read through the passage, and then answer the questions below. If you are unsure about something, ask for help at the Discussion Board.

You might also find it helpful to read this passage at the GreekBible.com website, where you can click on each word and see its dictionary definition with grammatical information. (Just search for "Luke 15" and make sure you set the display to "Palatino Linotype").

Note: Remember that the question word τι can mean "what?" and can also mean "why?"

Accents: The reading has been provided with breathing marks and accent marks, but the questions and answers should be done without breathing marks and accent marks - although you should include the iota subscript when necessary.

When the assignment has been completed, a Composition Key will be made available.

εἶπεν δὲ ὁ πατὴρ πρὸς τοὺς δούλους αὐτοῦ, Ἐυθὺς ἐξενέγκατε στολὴν τὴν πρώτην, καὶ δότε δακτύλιον εἰς τὴν χεῖρα αὐτοῦ καὶ ὑποδήματα εἰς τοὺς πόδας,

στολὴν: robe
δακτύλιον: ring
ὑποδήματα: sandals

καὶ φέρετε μόσχον καὶ φαγώμεθα. οὗτος ὁ υἱός μου νεκρὸς ἦν καὶ ἀνέζησεν, ἦν ἀπολωλὼς καὶ εὑρέθη. μόσχον: calf
ἀνέζησεν: come back to life
ἦν δὲ ὁ υἱὸς αὐτοῦ ὁ πρεσβύτερος ἐν ἀγρῷ: καὶ ὡς ἐρχόμενος ἤγγισεν τῷ οἴκῳ, ἤκουσεν τῆς φωνῆς χαρᾶς μεγάλης καὶ καλεσάμενος ἕνα τῶν δούλων ἠρώτησεν τί ἐγένετο.  
ὁ δὲ εἶπεν αὐτῷ ὅτι Ὁ ἀδελφός σου εἰσῆλθεν, καὶ ἔθυσεν ὁ πατήρ σου τὸν μόσχον τὸν σιτευτόν, ὅτι πάλιν αὐτὸν ἀπέλαβεν. ἔθυσεν: slaughtered
σιτευτόν: fattened
ὠργίσθη δὲ καὶ οὐκ ἤθελεν εἰσελθεῖν. ὁ δὲ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ ἐξελθὼν παρεκάλει αὐτόν. ὠργίσθη: was angered, became angry
ὁ δὲ ἀποκριθεὶς εἶπεν τῷ πατρὶ αὐτοῦ, Ἰδοὺ πολλὰ ἔτη δουλεύω σοι καὶ ἐμοὶ οὐδέποτε ἔδωκας ἔριφον ἵνα μετὰ τῶν φίλων μου φάγωμαι: ὅτε δὲ ὁ υἱός σου οὗτος ὁ φαγών σου πάντα μετὰ ἁμαρτιῶν ἦλθεν, ἔθυσας αὐτῷ τὸν σιτευτὸν μόσχον.

δουλεύω: serve
οὐδέποτε: never
: kid, young goat
φίλων: friends

ὁ δὲ εἶπεν αὐτῷ, Τέκνον, σὺ πάντοτε μετ' ἐμοῦ εἶ, καὶ πάντα τὰ ἐμὰ σά ἐστιν: πάντοτε: always
νῦν δὲ χαίρειν ἔδει, ὅτι ὁ ἀδελφός σου οὗτος νεκρὸς ἦν καὶ ἔζησεν, καὶ ἀπολωλὼς καὶ εὑρέθη.
