ὅτι οὐκ εἰμι δαιμόνιον ἀσώματον - 1st Century Hebrew gospel ?

Ignatius Smyr. 3:2 καὶ ὅτε πρὸς τοὺς περὶ Πέτρον ἦλθεν, ἔφη αὐτοῖς· Λάβετε, ψηλαφήσατέ με καὶ ἴδετε ὅτι οὐκ εἰμι δαιμόνιον ἀσώματον. καὶ εὐθὺς αὐτοῦ ἥψαντο καὶ ἐπίστευσαν, κραθέντες τῇ σαρκὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ τῷ αἵματι. [155] διὰ τοῦτο καὶ θανάτου κατεφρόνησαν, ηὑρέθησαν δὲ ὑπὲρ θάνατον. Does ἴδετε ὅτι οὐκ ...

Re: ἐφοβήθησαν φόβον μέγαν

... if a translated Greek phrase shows up in the LXX and it is used by a later writer it may or may not be borrowed from the Greek Septuagint. Did the later writer write directly in Greek? Did the writer use sources? Is there any evidence of non-Septuagintal Hebraisms in the later writer and source...

Re: ἐφοβήθησαν φόβον μέγαν

Thank you Carl and Barry, you're replies helped me focus the question. The so called cognate accusative isn't peculiar to Hebrew. However expressions similar to ἐφοβήθησαν φόβον μέγαν show up in authors downstream of the Septuagint.

ἐφοβήθησαν φόβον μέγαν

Been reading The Hebrew Gospel and the Development of the Synoptic Tradition Eerdmans (2009) James R. Edwards, waiting on ILL request for his Luke commentary. Edwards suggests that Luke may have used a Hebrew source for portions of his gospel. Source-criticism is of course off-topic. The focus here ...

Re: Translating Athanasius

A quick trip to Lampe's shows me I stumbled into a theological thicket. It was a term Nestorius' used which earned him considerable ire from Cyril. Indeed, demonstrates why the full text Lampe is indispensable. I attempted to sort the problem out by reading all the citations from Cyril. Eventually ...

Re: Translating Athanasius

Εἰπὲ οὖν Θεοτόκον τὴν Παρθένον, καὶ μὴ λέγε Θεοδόχον· μᾶλλον δὲ λέγε Θεοδόχον καὶ Θεοτόκον. Εἰ Θεοδόχος ἐστὶ καὶ Θεοτόκος· σάρκα οὐκ ἂν ἔλαβεν ἐξ αὐτῆς ὁ Θεὸς Λόγος; Θεοδόχον god-receiver This paragraph remains somewhat difficult. I don't recall seeing this discussed in Calvin's Institutes [1]. [1]...

Re: Translating Athanasius

It appears to me there might be another way to understand ὁ Θεὸς Λόγος in: σάρκα οὐκ ἂν ἔλαβεν ἐξ αὐτῆς ὁ Θεὸς Λόγος; I suspect this is a reference to the incarnation, but I'm certainly no expert on patristic authors. The way I'm suggesting reading this is: Flesh begets flesh, ὁ Θεὸς Λόγος was not b...

Re: How to Identify a Permissive/Causative Middle Voice Verb?

there is no such thing as a "permissive/causative middle voice verb." It appears to be a semantic functional category employed by some grammarians. There's no problem finding references to and discussions[1] of the permissive and/or causative middle voice verb in grammatical literature. Apparently ...

Re: 1 Corinthians 12:4-5 δὲ vs καὶ

If your last sentence means that the text you analyze doesn't "obey the rules", I remind that according your analysis it fits within the framework about which Steve told Levinsohn nowadays holds. But your purpose is a bit unclear to me. Eeli, Yes I agree, it wasn't well worded. I didn't put in the ...
