Re: Textual variant in Jude 1:6 - αλυτοις

The expression ἀλύτοις δεσμοῖς is found in Aeschylus Prometheus vinctus L.155 εἰ γάρ μ' ὑπὸ γῆν νέρθεν θ' Αἵδου τοῦ νεκροδέγμονος εἰς ἀπέραντον Τάρταρον ἧκεν, δεσμοῖς ἀλύτοις ἀγρίως πελάσας, ὡς μήτε θεὸς μήτε τις ἄλλος τοῖσδ' ἐγεγήθει. νῦν δ' αἰθέριον κίνυγμ' ὁ τάλας ἐχθροῖς ἐπίχαρτα πέπονθα. It is ...

Re: Hayes - Analysis of Attributive Participle and Relative Clause

Hearing “choice implies meaning” could lead to some fairly interesting exegetical decisions by people who are like me that stumble across it unless it is clarified. Do apparent alternatives necessarily imply conscious choice? Does meaning imply authorial intent? I first ran into this idea exploring...

Re: Sad news about BibleWorks

The resources available without cost are exploding. That's definitely true. And may that trend continue. Certainly hope that it does improve. I was several weeks into my study of Athanasius On the Incarnation before I found a digital diglot[1]. The TLG Open Corpus includes all but the most importan...

Re: Sad news about BibleWorks

The resources available without cost are exploding. When Matthew posted recently about restrictive nonrestrictive relative clauses, it took me less than 90 seconds to find and download the monograph. I don't have a digital library, just a search engine with a few texts linked to a handful of old lex...

Re: Help on a text from St John Damascene

Gregorius Nazianzenus, De filio (orat. 29) §2 L15 καὶ τοῦτό ἐστιν ἡμῖν ὁ πατήρ, καὶ ὁ υἱός, καὶ τὸ ἅγιον πνεῦμα· ὁ μὲν γεννήτωρ καὶ προβολεύς, λέγω δὲ ἀπαθῶς, καὶ ἀχρόνως, καὶ ἀσωμάτως· τῶν δέ, τὸ μὲν γέννημα, τὸ δὲ πρόβλημα, ἢ οὐκ οἶδ' ὅπως ἄν τις ταῦτα καλέσειεν, ἀφελὼν πάντῃ τῶν ὁρωμένων.

Re: Help on a text from St John Damascene

... I know that some Fathers are using these terms either in energetic way (about the gifts of the Holy Spirit), either about the causation. It appears to me that this text is about the procession of the Holy Gifts, and not the causation, as regards the context and what he says further. But I would...

Re: Help on a text from St John Damascene

RE: ATHANASIUS, De trinitate [Sp.]. After looking all over for a discussion of this text and not finding any it occurred to me that [Sp.] might be a code for spurious, not authentic. Turns out that this text is rejected as not being authentic. Why TLG has it listed as a work by ATHANASIUS is an open...

Re: Help on a text from St John Damascene

I also have reservations about the received English translation. Similar language is used by Athanasius cited below. I'll have to do some more work on it. It would be easy to get sidetracked in Filioque but if we resist that temptation we can discuss the lexical semantic issues here without being ce...
