Greek question: εσχε
« on: December 07, 2008, 04:58:34 PM »
For those who know Greek, can you define the word εσχε for me?  It's used a lot in post biblical writings but I can't get a handle on its proper usage.

Thanks in advance!

Can you give an example of the context in which the word is used?
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

Roughly, it is the third person form of the simple past tense of the verb "to have" (possess, own etc), but the page above gives much more details. I hope this is correct.
