Re: Can εἰσενέγκῃς have a passive meaning?

Alex,

Thanks for the suggestion. As longstanding members of B-Greek know, I worked up my own examination of this text sometime ago. FWIW, it can be accessed here: https://www.academia.edu/39411351/Testi ... ation_Matt

Re: εἰς in Matt. 6:13//Lk. 11:4

The reason I asked about the preposition has to do with what Matt. 6:13//Lk. 11:4 might mean if the referent of πειρασμόν is a place, specifically the one that the LXX calls πειρασμὸς.

Can εἰσενέγκῃς have a passive meaning?

Is there a reason for claiming, as does C.F.D. Moule ("An Unsolved Problem in the Temptation Clause in the Lord's Prayer" Reformed Theological Review 33 [1974] 66), that καὶ μὴ εἰσενέγκῃς ἡμἄς εἰς “need mean no more than ‘do not let us be brought into’” besides how the phrase would then co...

the referent of the noun πειρασμός in Matt. 6:13//Lk. 11:4

Is there any evidence that what the noun πειρασμός refers to in Matt. 6:13//Lk. 11:4 (καὶ μὴ εἰσενέγκῃς ἡμᾶς εἰς πειρασμόν) is the place where the Wilderness generation put God to the test and is named πειρασμὸς in the LXX (Exod. 17:7 καὶ ἐπωνόμασεν τὸ ὄνομα τοῦ τόπου ἐκείνου πειρασμὸς καὶ λοιδόρησι...

εἰς in Matt. 6:13//Lk. 11:4

Must the meaning of εἰς in καὶ μὴ εἰσενέγκῃς ἡμᾶς εἰς πειρασμόν be translated as "into"? Is there any evidence that it bears the meaning "to"?

Re: The meaning of ἐλθάτω ἡ βασιλεία σου

Yes. Can what I propose be the meaning of ἐλθάτω ἡ βασιλεία σου, especially given that the verb "come" is not associated with "kingdom of God" in the OT or in Second Temple Jewish literature.

The meaning of ἐλθάτω ἡ βασιλεία σου

I am exploring the idea that the βασιλεία that Jesus refers to at Matt. 6:10//Lk. 11:2 and which is the subject of the petitionary verb “come”, is not the apocalyptic manifestation of God’s royal rule (as most commentators on these verses assume), but the one that, according to Exodus 19:5-6, God at...

Who or what is the referent of αὐτῶν in Mk. 9:48

καλόν σέ ἐστιν μονόφθαλμον εἰσελθεῖν εἰς τὴν βασιλείαν τοῦ θεοῦ ἢ δύο ὀφθαλμοὺς ἔχοντα βληθῆναι εἰς τὴν [q]γέενναν, 48 ὅπου ὁ σκώληξ αὐτῶν οὐ τελευτᾷ καὶ τὸ πῦρ οὐ σβέννυται. I just noticed that, according to Mark, Jesus speaks of Gehenna as a place where "their [not the} worm" does not di...

Heb. 12:4

Οὔπω μέχρις αἵματος ἀντικατέστητε πρὸς τὴν ἁμαρτίαν ἀνταγωνιζόμενοι It is my understanding that this text is usually taken to be a statement that the readers of Hebrews have not yet experienced martyrdom (cf. how this is witnessed to respectively in the translations of it in the Holman Christian Sta...

ήμει̑ν

Some manuscript witnesses to the Lukan version of the bread petition of the Lord's Prayer read τον αρτον ημών τον έττιοΰσιον δίδου *_ήμει̑ν_* το καθ' ήμεραν rather than the better attested τον αρτον ημών τον έττιοΰσιον δίδου *_ήμιν_* το καθ' ήμεραν.
