2Co 4:4

ἐν οἷς ὁ θεὸς τοῦ αἰῶνος τούτου ἐτύφλωσεν τὰ νοήματα τῶν ἀπίστων εἰς τὸ μὴ αὐγάσαι τὸν φωτισμὸν τοῦ εὐαγγελίου τῆς δόξης τοῦ χριστοῦ, ὅς ἐστιν εἰκὼν τοῦ θεοῦ. I see that God is capitalized in the Codex Sinaiticus ἐν οἷς ὁ θεὸς τοῦ αἰῶνος so does the Greek support what Wakefield, and Adam Clarke impl...

θυ θς θε θν θω

Perhaps this is a "dumb" question, but can you explain the usage and variation of θυ θς θε θν θω it looks like "υἱὸς τοῦ θεοῦ" should be "of the θεοῦ" and like 1Jn 4:12 it should be "the θεὸς"? or is it just because of the nominitive, dative genitive postioning? Col 3:16-17 θς θω 1Ti 3:16 καὶ ὁμολογ...

Re: Mt 13:28 ἄνθρωπος αὐτά

I had meant to add that you don't need constantly to quote standard references to bolster your points. Most of us know Greek sufficiently well that we know what the vocabulary means, and if not, we have access to those same references. You are simply cluttering up your posts. Okay, thanks! I find a...

Mt 13:28 ἄνθρωπος αὐτά

Which is correct them or it? And why do most translations leave out the word ἄνθρωπος ? Matthew 13:28 (ESV) Matthew 13:28 (KJ21) Matthew 13:28 (ASV) Matthew 13:28 (AMP) Matthew 13:28 (GNT) Matthew 13:28 (KJV) Matthew 13:28 (NIV) Matthew 13:28 (WYC) Mt 13:28 ὁ δὲ ἔφη αὐτοῖς Ἐχθρὸς ἄνθρωπος τοῦτο ἐποί...

Re: Lu 1:58

You seem to believe there is a significant difference between "congratulate" and "rejoice with" in English. Can you say a little about the distinction you see, and why you believe that this Greek word makes the same distinction? αὐτῇ Because the reflexive pronoun reflects the action back to the sub...

Re: Lu 1:58

Are we playing a game here or or we earnestly trying to communicate? As our kind moderators have already said, it is you who did not communicate anything clearly and appropriately. This post of yours is the first I have seen that is written in complete sentences, but as Carl has pointed out, you di...

Re: Mat 6:13 Who is addressed?

Yes, Roy, we all are quite aware of all this data and these clauses with these verbs. We're all trying to tell you that they don't mean what you think they mean. Barry is right. You are wrong. Asserting the same thing over and over again doesn't change that. And as Carl has said, if you're here to ...
