Re: John 1:18 and Exodus 3:14 LXX

From Daniel Boyarin’s work The Gospel of the Memra pg 251. “Philo oscillates on the point of the ambiguity between separate existence of the Logos, God's Son,27 and its total incorporation within the godhead. If Philo is not on the road to Damascus here, he is surely on a way that leads to Nicaea an...

Barry interestingly the Doublemint gum commercial doesn’t mean that you actually will have double the pleasure. It’s hyperbole.

Re: 1 Tim 5:17 διπλῆς τιμῆς

Or Is there a connection with this rabbinic idea and Jesus’ comment at Matt 23:15? After his apostasy, Aher asked R. Meir [a question], saying to him: What is the meaning of the verse: God hath made even the one as ivell as the other? He replied: It means that for everything that God created He crea...

Re: John 8:25 and the adverbial accusative την αρχην

Dr Buth behind my question on GJohn 8:25 is wondering whether or not it reflects an Aramaic saying. Daniel Boyarin in his book The Gospel of the Memra says that GJohn 1:1-3 is composed with Genesis 1:1 in mind as recorded in the Neofiti targum.

Is it possible that τὴν ἀρχὴν stands in apposition to ὅτι καὶ λαλῶ ὑμῖν and mean something like “The Beginning, that I even spoke to you.”? - See Smyth section 1607 for accusatives in apposition. Below are comments I wrote up a number of years ago when I was researching this verse showing the diffic...
