Re: ἐξίστημι in Acts 8:11

Meyer has a helpful note on this. ἐξιστῶν, from ἐξιστάω (ἐξίστημι); so ἐξιστάνων, W. H. from ἐξιστάνω (hellenistic), see Blass, Grammatik, pp. 48, 49, transitive in present, future, first aorist active, cf. Luke 24:22—so ἐξεστακέναι, Acts 8:11, perfect active, hellenistic form, also transitive; see...

Re: Online Texts (Byzantine Majority; Westcott-Hort)

Here's a text with pronunciation marks from Step Bible: https://www.stepbible.org/?q=version=SBLG|reference=Matt.1 It's not Byzantine Majority version. I can't tell whether it's Westcott-Hort version or not? It's the SBL Greek New Testament (SBLGNT). By the way, for Greek we call those markings dia...

Re: ἐξίστημι in Acts 8:11

I vote for intransitive. However, I can't see how it really changes our understanding of the event with respect to the transitive renderings in English. It really looks like a translational issue to me, and translations are not obliged to preserve the syntax if the sense is otherwise conveyed. In o...

I would take it as the entire preceding clasue.
The clause starting with ἵνα? The other possibility I saw was πάντων ποιεῖσθαι δεήσεις κτλ.

1 Tim 2:1-4 - antecedent of τοῦτο in τοῦτο καλὸν

What do you think the antecedent of τοῦτο is in the phrase τοῦτο καλὸν? Παρακαλῶ οὖν πρῶτον πάντων ποιεῖσθαι δεήσεις, προσευχάς, ἐντεύξεις, εὐχαριστίας, ὑπὲρ πάντων ἀνθρώπων, ὑπὲρ βασιλέων καὶ πάντων τῶν ἐν ὑπεροχῇ ὄντων, ἵνα ἤρεμον καὶ ἡσύχιον βίον διάγωμεν ἐν πάσῃ εὐσεβείᾳ καὶ σεμνότητι. τοῦτο καλ...

Re: Matthew 5:3a

Hi Everybody, the direct, direct translation (Dative object) should be still the best: "Blessed be the poor (given, sacrificed= done as such) to ghost!" To ghost? I'm not sure what you mean by that. In Μακάριοι οἱ πτωχοὶ τῷ πνεύματι, the phrase τῷ πνεύματι is dative. τῷ is the article, it does not ...

Re: public domain audio recording of Matthew in ancient Greek (the non-modern pronunciation)

I've never understood the obsession with Erasmian. Why do people go out of their way to get things wrong? This isn't a close call, as they say. Well, if that's what your teacher insists on, it makes sense. I just don't know good GNT audio recordings with Erasmian. There are people who prefer Erasmi...

But is there a good free audio with Erasmian pronunciation? This is about as good as I can find
Not everything that is free should be used.
OK, is there any really good audio recording with Erasmian pronunciation? I haven't explored the non-free recordings. How is, say, John Schwandt?
