Re: John 17:5 and Existence in God's Plan

I was attempting to offer Barry a compliment via the use of hyperbole. If this now has to become a thread about how poorly I communicate, then just delete the entire thing and let's move on. Don't worry about it, it's fine, you asked a legitimate question which hopefully has been answered despite t...

Re: John 17:5 and Existence in God's Plan

You're one of those folks to takes everything literally, huh? ;-) That's an odd phrase for hyperbole. If it was hyperbole, perhaps it was intended as an insult to Barry. How am I supposed to read your emotions? All I can see is what you write on the screen. Without a wink, without a laugh emoji, wi...

Re: John 17:5 and Existence in God's Plan

"No native English speaker you meet will speak Koiné as well as they speak English. No one you will meet will speak Koiné better than they speak their native tongue. That is not even a reasonable expectation." It was hyperbole employed for emphasis. You're one of those folks to takes everything lite...

Re: John 17:5 and Existence in God's Plan

No, it's good, because it's ultimately about the Greek, and your instincts are good, because the Greek of John 17:5 in no way supports this "interpretation." How would you say it? A number of possibilities. Try καὶ νῦν δόξασόν με σύ Πάτερ τῇ δόξῃ ἥν μοι προώρισαι κατὰ τὴν γνώμην πρὸ τοῦ τὸν κόσμον ...

John 17:5 and Existence in God's Plan

Greetings, At John 17:5 we find these words: καὶ νῦν δόξασόν με σύ Πάτερ παρὰ σεαυτῷ τῇ δόξῃ ᾗ εἶχον πρὸ τοῦ τὸν κόσμον εἶναι παρὰ σοί It has been suggested to me that this text is not saying that the one who became Jesus literally existed in heaven in a glorious state before the world came to be, b...

Re: John 1:18 μονογενὴς

If you search the B-Greek archives, you'll find that this has been discussed a number of times, such as: http://www.ibiblio.org/bgreek/forum/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=1252&p=6141&hilit=begotten#p6141 In the meantime, the answer is "unique, one of a kind." I wonder why no translator (I'm aware of) render...

The Article and the Genitive Case

Can anyone provide any references to grammars or articles that mention or, preferably, discuss how nouns in the genitive case are less dependent on the article to establish definiteness then nouns in the nominative case? Given what the genitive case is, I think it's easy enough to infer why this wou...
