Re: Athanasius Contra Gentes

§ 40.1 Τίς ἂν εἴη οὗτος; καὶ τοῦτο γὰρ ἀναγκαῖον μάλιστα δηλῶσαι καὶ λέγειν, ἵνα μή, τῇ περὶ τοῦτον ἀγνοίᾳ πλανηθείς τις, ἕτερον ὑπολάβῃ, καὶ εἰς τὴν αὐτὴν πάλιν τοῖς πρότερον ἀθεότητα ἐμπέσῃ. νομίζω δὲ μηδένα περὶ τούτου τὴν διάνοιαν ἀμφίβολον ἔχειν. εἰ γὰρ δὴ τοὺς παρὰ ποιηταῖς λεγομένους θεοὺς ο...

Re: Christian 'corruption' of Psalms 14/53 to match Romans 3:10-18

Obviously, it's in Swete's Septuagint. Does anyone know if it's in the 1906 Brook-McLean Major "diplomatic" edition (based on Vaticanus)? Or is it in the critical Göttingen Septuagint? A few years ago I downloaded (from somewhere) the Brook-McLean edition for the "Octateuch" (994 pages long). I don...

Re: Doctrina Jacobi

My curiosity is aroused. I did my own hunting. It seems that the text by Dagron et Deroche was published in 1991 in Travaux et Mémoires vol. 11 -- a journal(?) focussed on Byzantine studies. Is that the book you got your hands on; i.e. a republication of the lengthy 1991 article (pages 47-229). I fo...

Re: Verbless clauses

I can't point to any studies of verbs being omitted from clauses in Koine Greek. However, I thought it would be worth checking both the LXX and the Hebrew text for Isaiah 61:1, which form the basis for Luke 4:18. At one level, the explanation for the omission of a verb in the first clause of Luke 4:...

Re: Jonly Joihin - Thesis on δε

Thanks for posting this. I've read the concluding chapter and hopefully got the gist of his lengthy dissertation.

Re: Athanasius Contra Gentes

Stirling, I'm hoping to have a closer look at the Greek in the future but I've stumbled across this online English translation: https://www.elpenor.org/athanasius/contra-gentes.asp . The translation appears identical to the one you tentatively attributed to Robinson. But, according to the website, i...

Re: 1 Thessalonians 4:16: Voice of the archangel or voice of the trumpet?

Bill, I'm not sure I understand your question but you appear to be suggesting that ἐν φωνῇ ἀρχαγγέλοu cannot be read as in the voice of an archangel, because φωνῇ is feminine and ἀρχαγγέλοu is masculine. If that is the issue, the difference of grammatical gender is in fact not an issue. The possessi...

Re: Romans 10:10 and impersonal "passives"

The glosses "is believed" and "is professed" would be fine renderings of a perfect medio-passive, but it isn't a very good translation of a present. Mike, I wonder if you might be willing to elucidate on this comment? I follow your Koine Greek blog and hope to become clearer on modern day scholarsh...

Re: "remember me" is unclickable

Edit : I misread the original "remember me" issue then typed this off topic post. But since it may be of interest to others, I decided not to delete it. I've sometimes had this issue here and on the B-Hebrew forum. My current but not rigorously tested theory is as follows. I usually use my iPad for...

Btw BDAG's 3rd entry for ἄλλος has "Pertaining to being in addition, more".
Yes, but BDAG appears to restrict this usage to when ἄλλος is used with a cardinal number.
