Is pistis or is isthmi at the root of episthmh?
First, let me say that I have no idea, but I don't think it is either of these two options. LSJ pairs the word with ἐπίσταμαι.

Re: Linking the Phrase ἐν τῇ Τιβεριάδι With the Words in the Context

The question that I am asking is why others believe that the statement underlined above is a likely option. The text says that Josephus sent the messenger while he was making his way to Tiberias, and we know from the next verse that the people met him at his arrival. This means that Josephus couldn...

Re: Linking the Phrase ἐν τῇ Τιβεριάδι With the Words in the Context

I can appreciate the sentiment. I suspect that there may be a common element linking these two thoughts (and perhaps others) that is currently obscured from us. At the very least, it seems to me that the word doesn't have to refer to a literal presence or imply any kind of motion toward an intended...

Re: Linking the Phrase ἐν τῇ Τιβεριάδι With the Words in the Context

The word παρουσία seems to be referring to Josephus’ coming to the people in Tiberias, and the courier was to report this to Tiberians while Josephus was still on his way. Otherwise, it could be argued that the courier was sent after Josephus’ arrival to report Josephus’ presence. "Ὁ δ᾿ Ἰωάννης ἀφι...

Re: Linking the Phrase ἐν τῇ Τιβεριάδι With the Words in the Context

At first, I tough that Τιβεριάδι is a form of the proper name of the city Τιβεριάδος. (In such case, the phrase ἐν τῇ Τιβεριάδι would mean “in [the city of] Tiberias.”) But H. St. J. Thackeray’s translation renders Τιβεριάδι as “people of Tiberias.” William Whiston’s translation reads the same. Is ...

Re: Linking the Phrase ἐν τῇ Τιβεριάδι With the Words in the Context

Thank you for the clarification. I can see now that the phrase can be properly understood as grammatically linked with σημανοῦντα. The text is apparently speaking about the report of Josephus’ coming to Tiberias while he was still on his way, rather than to his presence there after his arrival. Thi...

Re: Linking the Phrase ἐν τῇ Τιβεριάδι With the Words in the Context

προπέμψας ἄγγελον τὸν τὴν ἐμὴν παρουσίαν τοῖς ἐν τῇ Τιβεριάδι σημανοῦντα. "Having sent a messenger who will announce my arrival to the ones in Tiberius['s household]." The location of the phrase "τοῖς ἐν τῇ Τιβεριάδι" between the article and its participle appears to tether it to the final portion o...
