History of εις and εν

I recall reading some time ago (probably in a commentary) about a transition or confusion between these two prepositions. It came up in discussion today following our first year greek class on prepositions, so I decided to research a little more about this to refresh my memory. The main dictionaries...

Re: Understanding copyright of personal greek translation work?

This is why I am strongly for the idea of an online collaborative project that works to build up the Greek New Testament again from scratch using data from original manuscripts. I imagine we could have some form of interface where we see the raw data in an interlinear type of format, and allow trust...

Re: Hoping for real reading proficiency

There is a world of difference and reading outloud will NOT lead to true reading proficiency or internalization of a language. Sorry, humans arn't programed that way. Real language use for communication is VITAL. Which is why I am sad there is not enough demand for online/live koine/reconstructed c...

Stanley Porter writes an interesting article in his recent book "Linguistic Analysis of the Greek new Testament", its chapter 1, titled "Who owns the Greek Text of the New Testament? Issues that Promote and Hinder Further Study"

What is the difference between ἐδύνατο and ἠδύνατο?

It is used both ways in Mark 6, BDAG seems to imply the correct form for the imperfect uses the η, however accordance tags both as 3rd person singular imperfect. Mark 6:5 καὶ οὐκ ἐδύνατο ⸂ἐκεῖ ποιῆσαι οὐδεμίαν δύναμιν⸃, εἰ μὴ ὀλίγοις ἀρρώστοις ἐπιθεὶς τὰς χεῖρας ἐθεράπευσεν. Mark 6:19 ἡ δὲ Ἡρῳδιὰς ἐ...

Re: Understanding copyright of personal greek translation work?

LEB has basically the same quirky problematic license as the SBLGNT which is assessed earlier in this thread. Including the restriction that you have to report your sales data to Logos.

I wouldn't even take the accordance diagrammer's analysis as even technically possible.
Thanks, that is what I was trying to ascertain in the original post. It wasn't clear to me if there were two subjective options and the Accordance diagrammer saw it differently, or if one was incorrect.

Re: "Prepositional Phrases" and Syntax

Thats really helpful, thanks for your reply.

I take it from your response that technically both are possible—because you had to provide argumentation to demonstrate why your reading of the passage (and mine) was the correct option.

"Prepositional Phrases" and Syntax

Regarding John 3:1 Ἦν δὲ ἄνθρωπος ἐκ τῶν Φαρισαίων, Νικόδημος ὄνομα αὐτῷ, ἄρχων τῶν Ἰουδαίων· I read "ἐκ τῶν Φαρισαίων" as providing more information about the "ἄνθρωπος". However when I consult Accordance's "Diagram of the Greek New Testament", it is attached to "Ἦν" rather than "ἄνθρωπος". I don't...
