Re: Greek New Testament - RP 2018 available

Previous editions of this GNT were available online as a PDF. Will this edition also be available in that format?

Re: Matthew Phillips

Welcome, Matthew! Haven't heard from Carlton for a long time, he was one of the moderators of the list, and I really appreciated him as a person.

Re: In that Day

For instance, Luke 10:12 NASB has "in that day" for the phrase “ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ” Some translations like the HCSB translate it as "on that day." But it seems like translations are inconsistent on how it is translated. For instance in 2 Thessalonians 1:10 the exact same phrase “ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ”...

Re: Ancient scribal habits by modern standards

When we look at letters in the bible such as the Pauline corpus is there reason to be careful in overanalysing based on these modern standards? When writing these letters originally would revisions have been easily made, was papyrus easily obtainable and therefore starting a new version easy enough...

Re: Ancient scribal habits by modern standards

Early writers often used wax tablets for writing and editing texts before committing them to parchment or papyrus. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/11/Table_with_was_and_stylus_Roman_times.jpg So this may look like an ancient laptop with a stylus, but it is actually a wax tablet: htt...

Re: προείρηκα in 2 Corinthians 7:3

Let me separate two questions. (1) What is this verb? προ·ειρη·κα (perfect) is the same verb as προ·λεγ·ω (present) and προ·ειπ·ον (aorist). Each one starts with the prefix προ, meaning "beforehand" in this case. English has some verbs that have different roots - e.g. is, was, to be - and Greek has ...

But, yea', it really frustrates me to hear & read preachers appeal to "Strong's" :x. And, it seems no matter how many times I point out the dangers of these resources - they will still appeal to the same :roll:.
I think 1 Cor 12:10 has this right:
For when it is Strong's, then I am weak.

Discourse Analysis: the 80/20 cut

So Steve, assuming that your reading of the text is valid in all its particulars, what difference does it make? Should we draw different conclusions from the more traditional grammatical and syntactical reading of the text? If so, what? I'd like to jump off from this question in a different directi...

Re: Complete paradigms for all GNT verbs?

For someone who wants to internalize the language (and to do that one must use the language for communication), they will need a book like "Greek Morphology, Verbs and Nouns for Koine Greek" at biblicallanguagecenter.com. It has an English to Greek index and lists some common verbs that are not in ...
