Ephesians 1:23

This may have been addressed elsewhere, so if someone can direct me to a thread on this verse...the verse.. ἥτις ἐστὶν τὸ σῶμα αὐτοῦ, τὸ πλήρωμα τοῦ τὰ πάντα ἐν πᾶσιν πληρουμένου I have no doubt that to pleroma is in apposition to to soma. There are so many different choices as to how to translate t...

Re: Aorist participle in Eph. 1:9

Thanks for the replies...I also have the electronic edition of Hoehner as well as several others. I did like Barry's response...I feel much the same way...diagrammer's nightmare but loaded with theological grandeur.

Aorist participle in Eph. 1:9

Ephesians 1:8-9a reads as follows: ἧς ἐπερίσσευσεν εἰς ἡμᾶς, ἐν πάσῃ σοφίᾳ καὶ φρονήσει, γνωρίσας ἡμῖν τὸ μυστήριον τοῦ θελήματος αὐτοῦ, Perhaps this has been addressed but how is one to understand the relationship between the aorist participle γνωρίσας and the main aorist verb ἐπερίσσευσεν Given wh...

Passive verbs in Romans 10:10

I do not know if this has been addressed previously, but I could not find it with a search. The text of Romans 10:10: καρδίᾳ γὰρ πιστεύεται εἰς δικαιοσύνην, στόματι δὲ ὁμολογεῖται εἰς σωτηρίαν. My question involves the two passive verbs pisteuetai and homologetai. Does anyone have any idea why they ...

Romans 9:28 participles

The text: λόγον γὰρ συντελῶν καὶ συντέμνων ποιήσει κύριος ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς. It seems pretty evident that the participles modify the nominative kurios, but how are they to be understood? Most treat them adverbially, often citing manner. Any insights are appreciated, and if this has been dealt with earlier...

Romans 6:21 agreement

The pertinent text: τίνα οὖν καρπὸν εἴχετε τότε ἐφ' οἷς νῦν ἐπαισχύνεσθε; τὸ γὰρ τέλος ἐκείνων θάνατος. My questions have to do with the matter of grammatical agreement, which appears to begin with the noun καρπὸν (fruit, outcome, result, produce) which looks to be explained by the prepositional phr...

Romans 5:12 dia touto

Διὰ τοῦτο ὥσπερ δι' ἑνὸς ἀνθρώπου ἡ ἁμαρτία εἰς τὸν κόσμον εἰσῆλθεν καὶ διὰ τῆς ἁμαρτίας ὁ θάνατος, καὶ οὕτως εἰς πάντας ἀνθρώπους ὁ θάνατος διῆλθεν, ἐφ' ᾧ πάντες ἥμαρτον A couple of questions, the first is to what (if anything) does the first DIA TOUTO refer? Suggestions are all over the place. Sec...

Romans 5:7 Two uses of Gar

μόλις γὰρ ὑπὲρ δικαίου τις ἀποθανεῖται· ὑπὲρ γὰρ τοῦ ἀγαθοῦ τάχα τις καὶ τολμᾷ ἀποθανεῖν· Does anyone have any insight on the second of the two usages of gar in this verse? Additionally, any understanding about whether the grammar here seems to be positing one person (the righteous man and the good ...

Re: Romans 4:11

That is fine for the first eis + articular infinitive phrase, my question concerned the understanding of the second phrase
εἰς τὸ λογισθῆναι [καὶ] αὐτοῖς [τὴν] δικαιοσύνην. The first would seem to denote God's purpose, but the second seems more unclear to me as to purpose or result.
