Re: Athanasius Contra Gentes

§ 4.1Ἀποστᾶσα τῆς τῶν νοητῶν θεωρίας, καὶ ταῖς κατὰ μέρος τοῦ σώματος ἐνεργείαις καταχρωμένη, καὶ ἡσθεῖσα τῇ τοῦ σώματος θεωρίᾳ καὶ ἰδοῦσα καλὸν ἑαυτῇ εἶναι τὴν ἡδονήν, πλανηθεῖσα κατεχρήσατο τῷ τοῦ καλοῦ ὀνόματι, καὶ ἐνόμισεν εἶναι τὴν ἡδονὴν αὐτὸ τὸ ὄντως καλόν· ὥσπερ εἴ τις, τὴν διάνοιαν παραπλη...

Re: Doctrina Jacobi

A memorable quote from Doctrina Jacobi[1]: Ἰούδας γὰρ καὶ Ισραηλ καὶ τὰ ἔθνη τὰ εἰς Χριστὸν πιστεύσαντα μίαν ἀρχὴν ἔχουσι καὶ βασιλέα τὸν Χριστὸν. These words are inserted following a citation from Greek Hosea 2:1b-2 <Hos. 2:1> ... καὶ ἔσται ἐν τῷ τόπῳ, οὗ ἐρρέθη αὐτοῖς Οὐ λαός μου ὑμεῖς, ἐκεῖ κληθή...

Re: Mk. 6.14

Rephrasing the question: What is the function of ὁ βαπτίζων in Mk. 6.14. Mark 1:4 ἐγένετο Ἰωάννης [ὁ] βαπτίζων ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ καὶ κηρύσσων βάπτισμα μετανοίας εἰς ἄφεσιν ἁμαρτιῶν. Mark 6:14 Καὶ ἤκουσεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Ἡρῴδης, φανερὸν γὰρ ἐγένετο τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἔλεγον ὅτι Ἰωάννης ὁ βαπτίζων ἐγήγερται ἐκ ...

Re: Doctrina Jacobi

The following text raises a number of very interesting questions. Sarah Gador-Whyte addresses some of them. Most of them are off topic for this forum. Πίστευσον τῷ Θεῷ, κύρι Ἰάκωβε, ὅτι ἐὰν πιάσουσί με οἱ Ἰουδαῖοι καὶ οἱ Σαρακηνοὶ καὶ κομμάτια κομμάτια κατακόψουσι τὸ σῶμά μου, οὐ μὴ ἀρνήσομαι τὸν Χρ...

Re: Taxonomy for hierarchy in corpus linguistics

Just a comment. The LXX is not an entity.

Re: Col. 1:15

Stirling, have you got a recommendation on a grammar/reference work on Koine you like ? I don't know of a particularly pure, in this sense, work on Greek syntax. I am completely out of touch with what has been published recently. The Cambridge Grammer is too new for me to get through ILL so I haven...

Re: Col. 1:15

One thing that struck me when this thread opened is the subtitle of Wallace's grammar, in which both the first mentioned classifications occur, " An Exegetical Syntax of the New Testament with Scripture ". That subtitle should be in bold red type. That is precisely the issue with semantic categorie...

Re: Col. 1:15

Here is a thread you might find helpful where Carl Conrad expresses his views on genitive classification. But the fact is that every adnominal genitive -- every genitive noun that qualifies another noun -- is a structure without any distinct semantic value. IMO Carl nailed it. Read the whole post he...

Re: Col. 1:15

"ὅς ἐστιν εἰκὼν τοῦ θεοῦ τοῦ ἀοράτου, πρωτότοκος πάσης κτίσεως," Is this a Genitive of subordination or a Genitive Partitive? Neither. It is an "adnominal genitive." Search the archives for a discussion. τοῦ θεοῦ τοῦ ἀοράτου qualifies the noun εἰκὼν. πάσης κτίσεως qualifies the substantive πρωτότοκ...
