Re: Books to help reading Hebrews

What did you mean by “predictable outcome”?

After reading them for decades you know in advance where they will take you. Unlike Bruce Waltke there were no surprises with F.F. Bruce and L. Morris.

Re: Books to help reading Hebrews

F.F. Bruce's commentary deals with a lot of the language issues. I remember the manager of bookstore in seminary 40 years ago, Bruce was one of his heroes. I have owned most of his commentaries. Predictable outcome. Similar quality to Leon Morris[1]. Moving forward to the 1990s Paul Ellingworth NIG...

Re: What areas need updating in Silva?

The "frames of reference" approach is a "cognitive linguistics" light approach to Bible translating. For a rigorous CL approach to biblical semantics and lexicography, you might check out the work being done at Stellenbosch University by (and students under) my colleague, Prof, Christo van der Merw...

Re: Construing the participle in 2 Corinthians 8:9

NA27 2Cor. 8:9 γινώσκετε γὰρ τὴν χάριν τοῦ κυρίου ἡμῶν Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ, ὅτι δι᾿ ὑμᾶς ἐπτώχευσεν πλούσιος ὤν, ἵνα ὑμεῖς τῇ ἐκείνου πτωχείᾳ πλουτήσητε. Is there anything in the syntax of the clause beginning with ὅτι that tells us to construe the participial phrase πλούσιος ὤν as concessive? The short a...

Re: What areas need updating in Silva?

This is not "new theory" it has been around for ages. Citation from Wendland 2010 pdf page 8 Minsky (1975), calling scenarios ―frames, defines them as mental structures representing stereotyped situations, by which we understand new situations, and which we constantly update in the light of experien...

Re: NT Word Study

Yesterday and this morning I was doing something remotely similar to your study. I was looking at how προφανῶς is used in Greek Patristic authors particularly John of Damascus. I don't have a concordance so I had to search on the word and read each context. It is time consuming but you learn somethi...

Re: NT Word Study

You should get your hands on the "classic" textbook Biblical Words and Their Meaning, Moises Silva. It is out of date but still useful. Most other works on lexical semantics are written by and for linguists and somewhat technical.

Re: Lawrence O. Richards ὑπόκρισις word group

Spicq's treatment of the historical development helps us to understand frames and scripts for prototypical scenarios in which ὑποκριτής, ὑπόκρισις, ὑποκρίνομαι were used[1]. Thus what appears to be an older lexical semantic method actually is more valuable. It helps us understand the metaphor by pro...
