Re: Infinitive Subjects of ἐγένετο

He then cites NT texts for ἐγένετο and Herodotus for συνέβη. Good quote showing a hilarious/classic example of circular reasoning: "If "A" is a standard structure in Greek outside the NT, we would prove this by quoting NT examples." Can anyone easily search the classical corpus - especially the Hel...

Re: New Testament Greek Manuscripts, by Reuben Swanson

Transcriptions for manuscripts are becoming available from the German Bible Society and from Alan Bunning, my guess is that we will see more of this online and in PDFs, generated from data that is now much more widely available than it was when Swanson did his work.

Re: Infinitive Subjects of ἐγένετο

At any rate, I think the place to look for discourse markers is generally on the left edge, and so I would consider καὶ ἐγένετο (Mark) or έγένετο δέ (Luke) to be a kind of discourse marker signaling a later unit in the narrative. Is the function of the infinitive subject distinct from the overall d...

Re: Infinitive Subjects of ἐγένετο

What is the difference between a formulation like this: Mark 2:23 Καὶ ἐγένετο αὐτὸν ἐν τοῖς σάββασιν παραπορεύεσθαι διὰ τῶν σπορίμων, καὶ οἱ μαθηταὶ αὐτοῦ ἤρξαντο ὁδὸν ποιεῖν τίλλοντες τοὺς στάχυας. And this: Mark 2:23 ἐν δὲ τοῖς σάββασιν παραπορεύεται διὰ τῶν σπορίμων, καὶ οἱ μαθηταὶ αὐτοῦ ἤρξαντο ...

Infinitive Subjects of ἐγένετο

I am trying to get a better understanding of infinitive subjects of ἐγένετο. I suspect that they have a discourse function, but I am not sure exactly what it is. Let me dump some data on you and ask some questions ... Here are the examples I found with this query - I will ask some questions in the n...
