Re: Analysis of the Expression μετὰ δόξης ἐξ οὐρανῶν μετὰ τῆς ἀγγελικῆς αὐτοῦ στρατιᾶς παραγενήσεσθαι κεκήρυκται

Justin Martyr, First Apology, extract from chapter 52: “Ἐπειδὴ τοίνυν τὰ γενόμενα ἤδη πάντα ἀποδείκνυμεν πρὶν ἢ γενέσθαι προκεκηρύχθαι διὰ τῶν προφητῶν, ἀνάγκη καὶ περὶ τῶν ὁμοίως προφητευθέντων, μελλόντων δὲ γίνεσθαι, πίστιν ἔχειν ὡς πάντως γενησομένων. ὃν γὰρ τρόπον τὰ ἤδη γενόμενα προκεκηρυγμένα...

Re: 2 Cor 8:24 - main verb of ἐνδεικνύμενοι?

I can't read the Greek text in that article, which doesn't look like Unicode. Do I have to install a particular font? Maybe I've gotten too much practice reading pre-Unicode fonts, but the Greek didn't seem that difficult, and everything's cites so you can look up the Greek for yourself. But yes ex...

Re: Athanasius: repititon of ἰδὼν ... ὁρῶν

Anthropomorphic language is common in the Scriptures. Why shouldn't Athanasius follow suit? No reason why he shouldn't. I haven't previously studied Athanasius, read On the Incarnation in English eons ago on recommendation from Peter Toon when I met him in the mid '70s. I get the impression that At...

Re: semantics/pragmatics

Do you have a link to the dissertation or some of the cites? I'm not familiar with the secondary literature he's citing. Perhaps this will get you there, had some difficulty making a working link before I posted. https://macsphere.mcmaster.ca/simple-search?query=KNOWLEDGE+OF+MEANING+AND+LINGUISTIC+...

Athanasius: repetiton of ἰδὼν ... ὁρῶν

Athanasius On the incarnation: § 8.1 Τούτου δὴ ἕνεκεν ὁ ἀσώματος καὶ ἄφθαρτος καὶ ἄϋλος τοῦ Θεοῦ Λόγος παραγίνεται εἰς τὴν ἡμετέραν χώραν, οὔτι γε μακρὰν ὢν πρότερον. Οὐδὲν γὰρ αὐτοῦ κενὸν ὑπολέλειπται τῆς κτίσεως μέρος· πάντα δὲ διὰ πάντων πεπλήρωκεν αὐτὸς συνὼν τῷ ἑαυτοῦ Πατρί. Ἀλλὰ παραγί νεται σ...

semantics/pragmatics

The following is a somewhat long citation from page 3-4 of a recent MA thesis at McMaster University Toronto. I thought this might stir up a useful discussion of semantics/pragmatics. The semantics/pragmatics distinction Debate in contemporary philosophy of language over the question of where and ho...

Re: articular adjectives - Do they HAVE to be substantival?

I was not aware of Robinson's assertion that articular adjectives can be appositional instead of substantival. As always the metalanguage is a source of confusion, "appositional instead of substantival" isn't and either/or. A substantive is something that syntactically functions like a noun. Two su...

Re: articular adjectives - Do they HAVE to be substantival?

Have a hard time with this, every adjective in second attributive position is a substantive? ὁ πατὴρ ὁ οὐράνιος “both substantive and adjective receive emphasis the adjective is added as a sort of climax in apposition with a separate article” A.T. Robertson p 776. Robertson appears to make a distinc...

Re: Genitive construction in 2 Corinthians 3:6

We get a lot of questions like this one. You need to focus your inquiry to one specific well defined issue.

Postscript: the labels attached to genitive constituents are arbitrary ill-defined and generally cause more confusion than anything else. Quibbling over them is a waste of time.

If yes, would you say that LSJ is on the same level of authority as, say, BDAG?
LSJ is used out of desperation. It is fossil evidence from classical philology a dinosaur which went out of existence along with "western civilization."
