οὔπω ἔχετε πίστιν; in Mark 4.40

In the stilling of the storm account in Mark 4.35-41, the disciples wake Jesus, he calms the storm, and then says to them: Τί δειλοί ἐστε; οὔπω ἔχετε πίστιν; This is usually translated as something like: Why are you cowards? Are you still not having faith? There are some text critical issues with Je...

Re: How do you call a pig in Greek?

Thanks, Stephen, As you indicate, it seems more of a common inheritance than a direct borrowing... Kind of what I figured, but it still sort of works as a mnemonic. I had checked, and, as you also noted, χοῖρος becomes the preferred term for a pig/sow/boar in the NT, but we do have an examples of ὕς...

τί followed by Aorist Subjunctive or Future Indicative

(My question is actually more specific, and I am just not confident enough with my Greek to make a definitive conclusion. Any help is appreciated.) In Mark 10.17, the guy runs up to Jesus and says, "Good Teacher, τί ποιήσω in order that I might inherit eternal life?" Every analysis scheme I can find...
