Re: Matthew 5:23 in TGNT - say what?

Peter Williams saw this thread and sent me this email with permission to post it. Dear Jonathan, I love the question. That’s the beauty of being involved in an edition which follows manuscripts rather than relatively recent artificial rules. We took screenshots of manuscripts, so I’m happy to share ...

Matthew 5:23 in TGNT - say what?

I was reading Matthew 5:23 a few days ago and was surprised that it said this: κἀκεῖ μνησθῇς ὅτι ὁ ἀδελφός σου ἔχει τί κατὰ σοῦ. I've circled the word with the surprising accent: ti.png So I sent this to Dirk as a typo, and here is his response (shared with permission): The accent is intentional. Tu...

Re: 1Thess 3:13

I think you are making an argument based on context, not grammar, so grammatical terms won't clarify what you mean. You are asking which sense of the word is intended here, "coming" or "presence". That's the most precise way you can phrase it. I suggest you lose the fancier terms 'durative' and 'pun...

Re: 1Thess 3:13

I am going to ignore the theological argument and try to understand the grammatical question. Let me start by providing the text: εἰς τὸ στηρίξαι ὑμῶν τὰς καρδίας ἀμέμπτους ἐν ἁγιωσύνῃ ἔμπροσθεν τοῦ Θεοῦ καὶ πατρὸς ἡμῶν ἐν τῇ παρουσίᾳ τοῦ Κυρίου ἡμῶν Ἰησοῦ μετὰ πάντων τῶν ἁγίων αὐτοῦ.

Re: Anyone want to work through Dickey's Greek Prose Composition book?

OK, here's one I'm having difficulty with. Can someone help me understand the difference in accentuation for παιδεύσαι (optative) versus παίδευσαι (imperative) versus παιδεῦσαι (infinitive)?
