Re: Imperatives and encouragement

By exploring multiple semantic/pragmatic categories for the NT Greek Imperative you are following the path most traveled by "traditional grammar" which is now obsolete. I hate the expression but what were talking about is a genuine "paradigm shift" it isn't trivial. I'm not sure this is true. I'm n...

Re: Imperatives and encouragement

Hi all, just a quick question on whether it is acceptable to read imperatives such as those in Philippians 4:4 (Χαίρετε ἐν κυρίῳ πάντοτε· πάλιν ἐρῶ, χαίρετε) and 1 Thess 5:16 (Πάντοτε χαίρετε)to rejoice as encouragements and not as commands. Let's ignore all the fancy grammatical vocabulary for a s...

ὁμοούσιον τῷ Πατρί, ἐκ τῆς οὐσίας τοῦ Πατρός

I am comparing the 325 version and the 381 version of the Nicene Creed.

Can someone help me compare and contrast the meaning of ὁμοούσιον τῷ Πατρί versus ἐκ τῆς οὐσίας τοῦ Πατρός? Are there particularly good articles to look at on this?

Re: Mistranslation of Luke’s Genealogy?

I agree with Barry. I do not yet understand the approach to proof in this paper. Here are a few more concerns I noted: Did you propose a test that proves whether a particular example is emphatic or not? An objective test along those lines would be helpful. I didn't see it. An objective test cannot d...

Re: Those roots

Hello guys, Does anyone know how or where to look up the roots of Greek words? As you read? One way to do this is to use a tool that does morphological analysis, such as the Scaife reader. https://scaife.perseus.org/ Alpheios lets you do this for any Greek text on a web page: http://alpheios.net/ A...

Re: The Genitive affect upon δικαιοσύνης

First off, here's the complete verse. Two verses, actually, I hate to split sentences up. νόμος δὲ παρεισῆλθεν ἵνα πλεονάσῃ τὸ παράπτωμα· οὗ δὲ ἐπλεόνασεν ἡ ἁμαρτία, ὑπερεπερίσσευσεν ἡ χάρις, ἵνα ὥσπερ ἐβασίλευσεν ἡ ἁμαρτία ἐν τῷ θανάτῳ, οὕτως καὶ ἡ χάρις βασιλεύσῃ διὰ δικαιοσύνης εἰς ζωὴν αἰώνιον δ...

Re: The imperfect of Romans 9:3

"Nor does he describe the wish as ever actually formed; Henry Alford https://biblehub.com/commentaries/alford/romans/9.htm This hypothetical wish is impossible in light of Paul's theological argument found in Rom 9-11. Focusing on details like the imperfect will not lead you to a viable answer. Rat...
