Re: Imperatives and encouragement

Stirling, I am puzzled as to why we seem to be talking past each other here. I couldn't agree more with that example, my whole post was trying to show examples (which that could well be one) of contexts of situation where the imperative has to be modified in its meaning by the hearer. A similar exam...

Re: Imperatives and encouragement

Ok, I think we are actually in agreement without necessarily being clear on it. I am absolutely not arguing for a code model of translation, I am approaching it from a RT perspective that would indicate that the "code" is there, and constrains interpretation but needs to be padded out with reference...

Re: Imperatives and encouragement

That definitely isn’t what I am trying to do. Not well read enough to argue for something genuinely novel. I am just applying articles by wilson etc and other articles from different perspectives that I read in the past without having given it much more than a quick afternoon’s thought. I need to pr...

Re: Imperatives and encouragement

Hey Stirling, can you clarify what you mean? I am not arguing for multiple semantic categories, I am listing different contextual instances that it finds itself in. The minimalist part being that there is a desire for something and a belief that it is possible. Not the most rigorous definition, but ...

Re: Imperatives and encouragement

This is the basic structure of my thinking so far. Nowhere near complete and hacked together in my break at work. Any suggestions on how to develop it I suspect that a common objection to my view of depression from a Christian perspective would be to raise passages such as Php 4:4 and 1 Thess 5:16. ...

Re: Imperatives and encouragement

Thanks Timothy. I agree on the context side of things. I finished not too long ago Fantin’s book on the imperative and he went into context a fair bit. My guess is that the author of that audio book would not be tempted to say imperatives from a lower ranked person to a higher would carry the same f...

Imperatives and encouragement

Hi all, just a quick question on whether it is acceptable to read imperatives such as those in Philippians 4:4 (Χαίρετε ἐν κυρίῳ πάντοτε· πάλιν ἐρῶ, χαίρετε) and 1 Thess 5:16 (Πάντοτε χαίρετε)to rejoice as encouragements and not as commands. I frequently read that these are commands, but in English ...

Re: Giving feedback to people doing word studies

Hey Paul. It will be a while before I get to these - not able to take much in at the moment. If you happen to listen to them before I get to them it would be good to hear your thoughts

Nice, thanks - a few videos that I can watch through
