Re: Hendiadys?

I'm still not entirely following the logic of the proposed interpretation referenced in the original post. The significance of the get (βιβλίον ἀποστασίου) is to free the divorced woman for remarriage. For the husband to dismiss his wife without granting her the legal paperwork leaves her in a very...

Re: ὁ ἱερεὺς ὁ μέγας

Since you deleted all your own comments on the TextKit thread, it's difficult to tell what you're trying to accomplish with this inquiry.

Re: ὁ ἱερεὺς ὁ μέγας

It's a straightforward rendering of הַכֹּהֵן הַגָּדֹול. Is there a point to the original post?

Re: Grammatical question about Barnabas 4:9.

Hard to tell without context, but normally the use of an adjective for an abstract concept is in the neuter. Could 'black one' in context refer to Satan?

Re: ἡγιασμένος (Perfect participle of holy/sanctified/ἁγιάζω)

I think the temporal aspect of the perfect participle is relative to the future tense main verb. The action of the participle precedes the action of the main verb. At some point in the future the action of ἡγιασμένον occurs, and at a yet subsequent point the state described by ἔσται becomes a realit...

Re: Noun Form of the Verb ἔρχομαι

ἔλευσις is related to the suppletive future tense that corresponds to ἔρχομαι, so maybe that would do.

Re: John 1:12 case of τέκνα

I get the concept of the epexegetical infinitive. But I'm not seeing how the subject of γενέσθαι is not identical with the subject of ελαβον earlier in the verse, and τέκνα the predicate of the embedded sentence. I don't see how the accusative case of ἐξουσίαν has anything to do with τέκνα being acc...

No. τέκνα θεοῦ γενέσθαι qualifies ἐξουσίαν. Both τέκνα and γενέσθαι are in accusative agreement with ἐξουσίαν.

Re: John 1:12 case of τέκνα

Wouldn't the subject of the infinitive be them (with αὐτοῖς its antecedent) and τέκνα be the subject complement?

Re: The Negative particles: ου and μη

Since the referenced article is unavailable to non-subscribers, I don't know how the two examples in John 7 don't jibe with the author's thesis.

What's your specific concern about these examples?
