Re: 1 Tim 5:17 διπλῆς τιμῆς

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...

Why not a twin amount for the honor earned as per Meredith Kline?

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. There ראשית is understood to be another name for Wisdom...

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

Sterling did you notice that the Greek text is punctuated as a question? Your offered translation evidently doesn’t take into account this punctuation. If it was so straightforward a sentence then why is it viewed as a question? More to it than you seem to allow.

John 8:25 and the adverbial accusative την αρχην

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...

Is the article genitive article anaphoric at 2 Peter 1:11?

I’m asking for a friend who posed this question to me: Does the article του that is construed with κυριου at 2Peter 1:11 act anaphorically pointing back to του κυριου in verse 8? 2 Peter 1:8-11 8 ταῦτα γὰρ ὑμῖν ὑπάρχοντα καὶ πλεονάζοντα οὐκ ἀργοὺς οὐδὲ ἀκάρπους καθίστησιν εἰς τὴν τοῦ κυρίου ἡμῶν Ἰησ...

Re: "upon this rock" in Matthew 16:18

Thank you Barry for the kindly reprimand. It seems to me that the consideration that grammar and syntax plays in the identification of “this rock” has been pretty much exhausted and only the history and culture of that time will offer more insight. I hope you’ll allow me just a bit more leeway. I’d ...
