Re: Is Ὀργίζεσθε in Eph. 4:26 a concesion or command?

a very loose paraphrase poorly worded: "Be opposed to sin and don't do it. Don't let the sun go down on your battle against it This was the exact view of an older preacher/evangelist Dr. Wilfred Fisher whom I knew from the '80's (but posited this view in the '40's) -- his position is contrary to th...

Re: Trivia: Who wrote the most words?

Rank these groups of NT books according to the number of words they contain (in your preferred version of the GNT, or by letters if you prefer letters). Well for starters, most folks are surprised to find that Luke is the most prolific writer in the NT when word count is the determinant. His two bo...

Re: Trivia: All the diphthong together.

Is there a verse that contains all the diphthongs? If there is and there are many: What is the shortest verse that contains all of the diphthongs? No single verse contains all of the diphthongs. So, in anticipation of your next question, "What is the minimal number of verses needed to include all o...

Yes. Having the digitized text of the SBL GNT in MySQL helps. So in some justifiable sense, I was honing my skills. ;)

Re: Trivia: Is there a NT verse that contains all 24 letters

Looks like there are two verses in the NT which contain all of the Greek letters: Matthew 5:30 καὶ εἰ ἡ δεξιά σου χεὶρ σκανδαλίζει σε, ἔκκοψον αὐτὴν καὶ βάλε ἀπὸ σοῦ, συμφέρει γάρ σοι ἵνα ἀπόληται ἓν τῶν μελῶν σου καὶ μὴ ὅλον τὸ σῶμά σου εἰς γέενναν ἀπέλθῃ.

Re: SBL Greek New Testament Online

What is your source for glosses? The short answer is that it's a hodgepodge of various works filtered for brevity. It has been over 2 years ago since I worked on the glosses. (My recall is facilitated by going back and reading my twitter feed from that time ;) ). The greatest struggle with the glos...
