Texts of non biblical papyri

Hi ya, Does anyone know of a collection online of non-biblical Greek papyri from about the New Testament period ? I know CSNTM has biblical materials but I'm interested specifically in examples of non-biblical, non-literary materials, such as Diesmann, and others, studied. Obviously with transcripti...

Re: Does κόσμος in the NT connect with the OT usage?

Studying the use of a single word and really developing a sense of how it's used in various contexts and over time is a serious undertaking - look at how long it takes to produce a new dictionary. I read last year a book devoted to just four Hebrew words from Genesis. Papers have been written on κόσ...

Re: ὁ ἀληθινὸς τοῦ Θεοῦ Θεὸς Λόγος

What's odd about this is that the other grammars simply don't comment on it. There is a time to read grammars and a time to forget grammars. Grammars get in the way of learning to read. You don't need to know what this thing your staring at was called by Victorian philologists. Just notice the patt...

Re: ὁ ἀληθινὸς τοῦ Θεοῦ Θεὸς Λόγος

I expect that two are in apposition to the third. Apposition goes in simple adjacent pairs. In translation, you would add a relative pronoun to that 3rd one and make it a relative clause. So, God's power, the Word, who is the master... This surprised me so I went looking in the grammars and, on the...

Re: ὁ ἀληθινὸς τοῦ Θεοῦ Θεὸς Λόγος

Here is something else from the same context: § 46.3a Πότε δὲ ἡ δαιμόνων ἀπάτη καὶ μανία κατεφρονήθη, εἰ μὴ ὅτε ἡ τοῦ Θεοῦ Δύναμις ὁ Λόγος, ὁ πάντων καὶ τούτων Δεσπότης, διὰ τὴν τῶν ἀνθρώπων ἀσθένειαν συγκαταβάς, ἐπὶ γῆς ἐφάνη; § 46.3a Or when did the deceitfulness and madness of demons fall into c...
