Re: ἐν, μεθ', παρ'

κἀγὼ ἐρωτήσω τὸν πατέρα καὶ ἄλλον παράκλητον δώσει ὑμῖν ἵνα μεθ' ὑμῶν εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα ᾖ, τὸ πνεῦμα τῆς ἀληθείας, ὃ ὁ κόσμος οὐ δύναται λαβεῖν, ὅτι οὐ θεωρεῖ αὐτὸ οὐδὲ γινώσκει: ὑμεῖς γινώσκετε αὐτό, ὅτι παρ' ὑμῖν μένει καὶ ἐν ὑμῖν ἔσται Thanks for your good comment, though it's not clear from the spel...

Re: ἐν, μεθ', παρ'

ὅτι παρ' ὑμῖν μένει καὶ ἐν ὑμῖν ἔσται I personally would see a distinction in this context, not so much because of the prepositions used but because of the tenses used and the larger context of John (e.g. 7:39; 14:16 and 16:7). This context implies a change from what they currently had to what they ...

Re: ὡς δι’ ἑνὸς παραπτώματος in Romans 5:18

Stephen,

I'm in agreement with you on ambiguity, and I like the distinction between ambiguity and vagueness. I also didn't know the term prosody, but that is also a helpful concept.

Thanks!

Re: ὡς δι’ ἑνὸς παραπτώματος in Romans 5:18

Stephen and Chris, Thanks for your comments. They were very helpful, and I must admit that it was good to revisit Levinsohn's work. In looking at Dunn's commentary on 5:18 (WBC, 1:283), he says that "The ἑνὸς could be taken as neuter . . . but most understandably prefer to take it as a masculine . ....

Re: ὡς δι’ ἑνὸς παραπτώματος in Romans 5:18

I agree that there is real ambiguity in this passage. Do you think the lack of an article in the phrase ὡς δι’ ἑνὸς παραπτώματος (v. 18) is the factor that lead many to translate it as "one trespass"? In v. 16 the phrase καὶ οὐχ ὡς δι’ ἑνὸς ἁμαρτήσαντος τὸ δώρημα unambiguously refers to the one who ...

ὡς δι’ ἑνὸς παραπτώματος in Romans 5:18

15 Ἀλλ’ οὐχ ὡς τὸ παράπτωμα, οὕτως καὶ τὸ χάρισμα· εἰ γὰρ τῷ τοῦ ἑνὸς παραπτώματι οἱ πολλοὶ ἀπέθανον, πολλῷ μᾶλλον ἡ χάρις τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ ἡ δωρεὰ ἐν χάριτι τῇ τοῦ ἑνὸς ἀνθρώπου Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ εἰς τοὺς πολλοὺς ἐπερίσσευσεν. 16 καὶ οὐχ ὡς δι’ ἑνὸς ἁμαρτήσαντος τὸ δώρημα· τὸ μὲν γὰρ κρίμα ἐξ ἑνὸς εἰς κατά...

Re: Strange article in Ephesians 1:7

Scott Lawson wrote: FWIW, regarding hiciera versus hicieses, I've heard the (ra) form of the preterite subjunctive used more in my area and that's what comes to my mind first. I agree, but I would add that the "hicieses," at least here in Colombia, sounds more elegant or erudite. I think that Spani...

Re: use of the aorist

As Wallace says, the subjunctive has to do with "potentiality" (ExSyn, 463), or as Porter puts it, "The subjunctive form is used to grammaticalize a projected realm which may at some time exist and may even now exist, but which is held up for examination simply as a projection of the writer or speak...

Re: The Son of Him

John, I did a quick search on υἱοῦ αὐτοῦ in the GNT and the LXX and it occurs 43 times according to Bibleworks. Of those occurrences, five don't have the article (2 Ch 35:4; Neh 12:45; Bar 1:11, 12; 2:3) whereas the other 38 do. This would indicate to me that we shouldn't place any exegetical weight...
