Re: The BRIDGE Bible

I understand your need to recruit those with an in depth knowledge of Greek, on the other hand, it seems to me that even before that, you might need input from guys like me who know nothing and have a strong desire the understand Scripture without investing a lifetime studying the languages.

Re: New Linguistic Theories to learn

On a semi-related note, at some point I am going to have to take the dive down the rabbit hole and start reading work on second language acquisition.

Re: Is ὑπὸ with an inanimate object unusual?

It happens frequently enough that Danker thought it deserved its own sense. Here are the references he gave in your quote above (click on the link for a list of verses in Greek and English): Mt 8:24; Mt 11:7; Mt 14:24; Lk 7:24; Lk 8:14; Ac 27:41; Ro 3:21; Ro 12:21; 1 Cor 10:29; 2 Cor 5:4; Col 2:18; ...

Re: Can a genitive be both objective and subjective?

I think this is one of those times where each interpretation makes good theological sense, but these are two different interpretations of the same sentence, with different grammatical roles.

Re: Can a genitive be both objective and subjective?

Hmmmm, so the possibilities would be: The things that Christ taught The things that were taught about Christ Both? If I understand correctly, the original post asks if it can mean both the things that Christ taught and the things that were taught about Christ. The teachings that belong to Christ (Ba...

Re: Is κατ’ ὄνομα in 3 John 1:14/15 an idiom?

"individually" brings that scenario to mind which seems very nice but sort of over the top for a greeting: "Joel, the elder sends his greetings" "Abe, the elder sends his greetings" "Micah, ..." I don't know how large the group was or what the custom was. I had pictured this not as a formal announc...
