The harder issue is to determine just what composition he was thinking of.
Anything useful to read on that question? Or can you walk us through the possibilities?

Papias: Ματθαῖος μὲν οὖν Ἑβραΐδι διαλέκτῳ τὰ λόγια συνετάξατο

ταῦτα μὲν οὖν ἱστόρηται τῷ Παπίᾳ περὶ τοῦ Μάρκου· περὶ δὲ τοῦ Ματθαῖου ταῦτ’ εἴρηται· Ματθαῖος μὲν οὖν Ἑβραΐδι διαλέκτῳ τὰ λόγια συνετάξατο , ἡρμήνευσεν δ’ αὐτὰ ὡς ἧν δυνατὸς ἕκαστος. I'm surprised I couldn't find a discussion of this on B-Greek. Stephen Carlson translates this as Hebrew manner of ...

Re: definite article

A follow up to that. If an article is uses with a noun regarding an event, would that always be considered a one time event? No, there are other uses. For instance, consider how the article is used in Matthew 12: Ἐν ἐκείνῳ τῷ καιρῷ ἐπορεύθη ὁ Ἰησοῦς τοῖς σάββασιν διὰ τῶν σπορίμων· οἱ δὲ μαθηταὶ αὐτ...

Re: definite article

The article is never indefinite. We don't call it a 'definite article' simply because there is no indefinite article to contrast it with, but it does function a lot like the English definite article - with exceptions and idiomatic uses, of course. At a beginning level, I think Funk's description is ...

Re: Complete paradigms for all GNT verbs?

"Greek Morphology, Verbs and Nouns for Koine Greek" at biblicallanguagecenter.com. Highly recommended. Between this book and Kalos Beautiful Greek Software, I don't use anything else these days. Unfortunately, I cannot find Kalos just now and so can't give a link. Looks like it is down - there's an...

Re: Meaning of HUPARCHWN

I don't think any lexicon would support that, and there's a reason standard translations don't come out that way.

Perhaps it would be helpful to start with a lexicon and concordance entry for ὑπάρχω. That will give you the normal understanding and examples of where the word is used.

Re: Linking the Words Συντέλεια and Πέρας With the English Translation

To answer the original question, "end" matches up with πέρας, and consummation with συντέλεια. Oh, I suppose I should say more than that: ἡ συντέλεια τὸ τῆς αὐτοῦ ζωῆς πέρας ἐστί. It can't be any other way. ζωῆς as a genitive has to be dependent on πέρας, notice that it is contained attributively w...

Re: Linking the Words Συντέλεια and Πέρας With the English Translation

I think Bernd is asking a legitimate question. I suspect part of the difficulty is that the meaning of these two words is similar and remains similar if you look them up in a lexicon. Is the structure of the sentence οὐχὶ ἑκάστῳ ἡ συντέλεια τὸ τῆς αὐτοῦ ζωῆς πέρας ἐστί the issue? It may be helpful t...

Re: Biblical Greek, modern pronounication

Hi Catrin, Biblemesh teaches Greek using modern pronunciation, and they have nice recordings. If you can afford that route, I would recommend it. Faith Comes By Hearing has the entire New Testament recorded in modern pronunciation for free so you can read and listen at the same time. Buth's Restored...
