ὅτι in Luke 1.45

καὶ μακαρία ἡ πιστεύσασα ὅτι ἔσται τελείωσις τοῖς λελαλημένοις αὐτῇ παρὰ κυρίου. I read this as 'Blessed is she who believed that there will be a fulfilment of the things spoken to her by the Lord' which seemed unfamiliar, and I found in my English bible (NKJV) that it has 'Blessed is she who believ...

Re: ἐντετυλιγμένον εἰς ἕνα τόπον (John 20.7)

Tony, thanks for the further point about χωρίς - and one might add the οὐ μετά - certainly in English, if it were a few centimetres away it would still be 'with'. And thank you for the reference - I will look it up next time I am in the library. Jonathan, I think Morgan reads it as: Πέτρος ... θεωρε...

ἐντετυλιγμένον εἰς ἕνα τόπον (John 20.7)

6) ἔρχεται οὖν καὶ Σίμων Πέτρος ἀκολουθῶν αὐτῷ καὶ εἰσῆλθεν εἰς τὸ μνημεῖον, καὶ θεωρεῖ τὰ ὀθόνια κείμενα, (7) καὶ τὸ σουδάριον, ὃ ἦν ἐπὶ τῆς κεφαλῆς αὐτοῦ, οὐ μετὰ τῶν ὀθονίων κείμενον ἀλλὰ χωρὶς ἐντετυλιγμένον εἰς ἕνα τόπον. I had understood the σουδάριον to have been wrapped or folded at the time...

Re: Reading greek of the early church fathers?

I was encouraged by C S Lewis's comments on Athanasius's 'On the Incarnation of the Word': When I first opened his De Incarnatione I soon discovered by a very simple test that I was reading a masterpiece. I knew very little Christian Greek except that of the New Testament and I had expected difficul...

Re: John 21 ἀγαπάω / φιλέω

Benjamin Warfield, in his Terminology of Love in the New Testament, part 2, PTR 1918, 155, after reviewing a few cases in the LXX in which φιλέω and ἀγαπάω occur together, concludes: 'In all the combinations of ἀγαπᾶν and φιλεῖν, the higher role is assigned to ἀγαπᾶν.' https://drive.google.com/file/...

Re: λέγω with infinitive (MPol 3.1)

In the first part of the clause, the proconsul is the subject of πείθειν, and perhaps I would have expected to see an αὐτόν as the object of λέγοντος and 'subject' of κατοικεῖραι if the subject had changed. In most cases, one of the characteristics of the genitive absolute is that the subject of th...

λέγω with infinitive (MPol 3.1)

Πολλὰ γὰρ ἐμηχανᾶτο κατ’ αὐτῶν ὁ διάβολος, ἀλλὰ χάρις τῷ θεῷ, κατὰ πάντων γὰρ οὐκ ἴσχυσεν. ὁ γὰρ γενναιότατος Γερμανικὸς ἐπερρώννυεν αὐτῶν τὴν δειλίαν διὰ τῆς ἐν αὐτῷ ὑπομονῆς, ὃς καὶ ἐπισήμως ἐθηριομάχησεν. βουλομένου γὰρ τοῦ ἀνθυπάτου πείθειν αὐτὸν καὶ λέγοντος τὴν ἡλικίαν αὐτοῦ κατοικτεῖραι, ἑαυτ...

Re: κήρυκας ὑποστρωννύμενοι

Thanks very much, Carl. I certainly could swallow it, but it would also be nice to have some usage (apart from this case) to demonstrate the meaning of 'lie down on'. It has been suggested to me that what Wallace [Exegetical Syntax 425ff] calls the permissive middle might be relevant here - somethin...

Re: κήρυκας ὑποστρωννύμενοι

'Strew' is one of the meanings given in LSJ, so is not necessarily etymologising, but I do agree with Stephen that it is perfectly possible that the Christians were being spread out - I still have the difficulty with υπο- rather than επι-. Thanks, Carl, for the Isaiah reference. Still they were spre...

Re: κήρυκας ὑποστρωννύμενοι

Yes, I should think the sense must be "made to lie down on a bed of trumpet shells", the sense of ὑποστρώννυμαι being, "make one's bed of xxx (acc.)", i.e. put down a bedding material and lie down on it. Sorry, Carl I was slow (as too often) to grasp that you were suggesting (if I now understand yo...
