Re: Collation format

I had thought about that too early on. But the slot ID is tied to is relative position as well for comparison purposes. For example, you could have the same word appearing 5 times in the same verse and you have to know which position each is in. Some texts may only have the word 3 or 4 times, so it...

Re: Collation format

I am quite sure I am missing something here because my first question is, "why not allow greek letters to be used for Slot ID's and allow a variable length slot id?" (If the concern were about storage space, we wouldn't use base 58, but something more compact.) i.e. The Slot ID for ονειδισωσιν ονιδι...

Re: Abbott-Smith note on γινώσκω vs οἶδα

How accurate do you think this note is? γινώσκω, to know by observation and experience is thus prop. distinguished from οἶδα, to know by reflection (a mental process, based on intuition or information) I seem to recall that Porter (1989) suggested that some believe the distinction doesn't carry int...

Re: Subtle differences between paired Greek words

Thinking about γινωσκω vs οιδα will probably help you think through the issues as it connects to other verbs, see: Oida and ginōskō and verbal aspect in Pauline usage, Erickson, Richard, Westminster Theological Journal Reimagining Οἶδα: Indo-European Etymology, Morphology, and Semantics Point to Its...

Re: Spam intruder?

It's actually easy to see when someone does this if you are suspicious. Moderators can simply open the post up in an editing window, or anybody can reply to the post to see it in plain text. You can practice with this post - I hid some text in it. The silliest part of this, is that Google crawlers ...

Re: επι της θαλασση

Interesting question, I have no time to reflect on this more right now, but he is talking about what he can see in a vision, assumedly from the perspective of outside of the water. So my initial reaction is that choice of επι would simply suggest a precise description of what he can see. A careful a...

Singular οἶδας in John 3:8

Wallace describes πνεῖ in John 3:8 (τὸ πνεῦμα ὅπου θέλει πνεῖ) as an example of 'gnomic' present, it follows that the next statement 'καὶ τὴν φωνὴν αὐτοῦ ἀκούεις , ἀλλ᾿ οὐκ οἶδας πόθεν ἔρχεται καὶ ποῦ ὑπάγει·' is also generally gnomic in nature. But to my native English ears, the fact that ἀκούεις a...

Re: γεγεγεννημενον in P66 (John 3:6)

Thanks! I figured that was the case, but I just wanted to double check. The fact that it runs over the end of a line is interesting, I only saw this information in the CNTTS apparatus, not the original document.

I love the Banana analogy, it does feel just like that 😄

γεγεγεννημενον in P66 (John 3:6)

I understand that the only reason this slightly entertaining reduplication in P66 would have occurred would be scribal error. Is that correct? Is there any ancient/historical/linguistic reason that there might be any reason to suspect otherwise? I've never (for example) heard of a "pluperfect" parti...
