Re: Col. 1:15

In defense of the hair-splitting I might say that if someone has a mental block dealing with an aporetic and they see examples, it could trigger the "dawning".

Also, aporetic is an awesome word that will pepper my speech from now on!

Re: In 1 John 4:8 what is the role of ἐστίν?

Thanks Barry. So would you say that ἐστίν indicates that "love" is just another name for God? IE: There is no other way to read this other than a marker of identity?

Re: Does κατάλαλος have forensic associations?

I think I may have found an association, right in the text of James: James 4:11 μὴ καταλαλεῖτε ἀλλήλων ἀδελφοί ὁ καταλαλῶν ἀδελφοῦ ἢ κρίνων τὸν ἀδελφὸν αὐτοῦ καταλαλεῖ νόμου καὶ κρίνει νόμον εἰ δὲ νόμον κρίνεις οὐκ εἶ ποιητὴς νόμου ἀλλὰ κριτής I'm understanding "ὁ καταλαλῶν ἀδελφοῦ ἢ κρίνων τὸν ἀδελ...

BDAG have very little to say about κατάλαλος: κατάλαλος, ον (s. two prec. entries) pert. to speaking ill of others, slanderous w. δίψυχοι Hs 8, 7, 2. W. δόλιοι 9, 26, 7. Subst. ὁ κ.

Re: In John 17:26 what does "ᾖ κἀγὼ ἐν αὐτοῖς" mean?

By "character" I was trying to contrast his personally being in/among them to his being there by their being like him, etc. But I think my question has already been answered.

In John 17:26 what does "ᾖ κἀγὼ ἐν αὐτοῖς" mean?

John 17:26 καὶ ἐγνώρισα αὐτοῖς τὸ ὄνομά σου καὶ γνωρίσω ἵνα ἡ ἀγάπη ἣν ἠγάπησάς με ἐν αὐτοῖς ᾖ κἀγὼ ἐν αὐτοῖς Does this construction (and the context) indicate that Christ is asking to be in the disciples? Among them? Or does it leave open a less personal involvement, "my character might be in them"...

Re: 1 Thessalonians 4:16: Voice of the archangel or voice of the trumpet?

I've read Mounce, basic and beyond, but have some kind of learning disability, possibly related to past trauma.

My main input right now is steadily doing the Daily Dose.

The first answer I received for this question was really sufficient but thanks for the exhortations also.

Thanks.

So is it a command to take back Zion by force?

In Jeremiah 31:21 LXX what is the sense of τιμωρίαν?

Jeremiah 31:21 στῆσον σεαυτήν Σιων ποίησον τιμωρίαν δὸς καρδίαν σου εἰς τοὺς ὤμους ὁδὸν ἣν ἐπορεύθης ἀποστράφητι παρθένος Ισραηλ ἀποστράφητι εἰς τὰς πόλεις σου πενθοῦσα BDAG has only one usage listed which doesn't seem relevant: τιμωρία, ας, ἡ (fr. τιμωρό ‘avenger’, s. τιμωρέω) punishment (Aeschyl....
