So, Oun, to put it a little more succinctly, "Blessed in spirit are the poor"? Interesting take. So τῷ πνεύματι would modify μακάριοι rather than οἱ πτωχοὶ? One problem with that would be that the beatitudes are formulaic. So if you want to be consistent, and if you want τῷ πνεύματι to modify μακάρ...

Mt 1:19 AUTHN object or subject

This is my first posting on the B-Greek forum - I hope everything goes right and I behave well on this route. Good-bye to B-Greek e-mailing ;-< Mt 1:19 Ἰωσὴφ δὲ ὁ ἀνὴρ αὐτῆς, δίκαιος ὢν καὶ μὴ θέλων αὐτὴν [παρα]δειγματίσαι, ἐβουλήθη λάθρᾳ ἀπολῦσαι αὐτήν. Regarding MH QELWN AUTHN PARADEIGMATISAI, mos...
