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 die. So I'm ...

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. At the risk of showing my ignorance, is _ήμει̑ν_ a...

Matthew 12:40

Just wondering if Matthew 12:40 (ὥσπερ γὰρ ἦν Ἰωνᾶς ἐν τῇ κοιλίᾳ τοῦ κήτους τρεῖς ἡμέρας καὶ τρεῖς νύκτας, οὕτως ἔσται ὁ υἱὸς τοῦ ἀνθρώπου ἐν τῇ καρδίᾳ τῆς γῆς τρεῖς ἡμέρας καὶ τρεῖς νύκτας) could be translated this way: For the Son of Man will be in the heart of the earth for three days and three n...

the imperatives in Matt. 6:11 and Luke 11:3b

Can anyone here tell me whether from the point of view of aspect there is (or is not) a significant difference in meaning between the present imperative form of δίδωμι that Luke uses in his version of the Bread petition of the Disciples' Prayer and the aorist imperative form of this word that Matthe...

Re: inauthenticity of ἐλθέτω τὸ πνεῦμα σου τὸ ἅγιον ἐφʼ ἡμᾶς

I agree with you, Barry ( although the way the LP is set out in Luke does seem to show an intent to conform the structure of the petitions to one another in a balanced way).. And I say something to this effect (though perhaps not as strongly as I should) in what I have just uploaded to academia.edu,...

Re: nauthenticity of ἐλθέτω τὸ πνεῦμα σου τὸ ἅγιον ἐφʼ ἡμᾶς

Jeremias, New Testament Theology[ (1971) 194: "This petition for the spirit is certainly not original ...; the weak attestation, the difference in the position in which it appears, and above all its form, which varies from the structure of the other petitions, exclude this. It may, rather, derive fr...

nauthenticity of ἐλθέτω τὸ πνεῦμα σου τὸ ἅγιον ἐφʼ ἡμᾶς καὶ

One of the arguments that Jeremias brings forth to counter the claim made by Streeter and others that the variant ἐλθέτω τὸ πνεῦμα σου τὸ ἅγιον ἐφʼ ἡμᾶς καὶ καθαρισάτω ἡμᾶς is original to Luke's version of the LP is that its form/structure is strikingly different/varies considerably from that of the...
