Re: Mark 2:3 - could missing antecedent be intentional?

That's what I thought you probably meant, but I thought I should ask just to be sure. So what I'm proposing is this: can't participles function as substantives? In which case there is an explicit subject of ἔρχονται, namely the participle φέροντες or actually the entire phrase that it introduces. I...

Re: Mark 2:3 - could missing antecedent be intentional?

Which word is missing an antecedent? Isn't it usually pronouns that take antecedents? I probably used the wrong word here. I tend to use the word 'antecedent' to mean 'something introduced earlier that is referred to here', which is a little sloppy. Sorry to be confusing. I knew what you meant, alt...

Re: Mark 2:3 - could missing antecedent be intentional?

καὶ ἔρχονται φέροντες πρὸς αὐτὸν παραλυτικὸν αἰρόμενον ὑπὸ τεσσάρων. The lack of an antecedent here is striking, especially when the people introduced with this verb are so important to the following dialog. Could this be intentional? If so, what do you think the purpose is? The syntax is... odd. H...

Re: Genitive Singular vs Accusative Plural

Also, in context you can nearly always make the distinction. If the article is present, τῆς ὥρας but τὰς ὥρας. Both for PC's and Macs, the Greek polytonic keyboard is easy to add. https://ancientgreek.pressbooks.com/app/uploads/sites/48881/2017/08/Polytonic-Greek-in-Windows.pdf https://ancientgreek....

Re: main text of the NA28 in PDF?

If you can't find it, probably not (and remember that if you do it's a copyrighted text). You can find the text here:

Re: Zachariou - Reading and Pronouncing Biblical Greek

Strange coincidence. I stumbled across BibleMesh and have taken up their biblical languages certificate. Applied, accepted, tutor given is Dr Zachariou. I didn’t even realise he taught there when I posted this or applied. It will be nice to finally learn Greek and get a certificate that hopefully s...

Re: Soon Ki Hong on the perfect tense

Though it's the most common perfect in the NT, I would just special case οἶδα and maybe some other really old perfects. They're basically linguistic fossils, and not really a good guide to the productive use of the perfect. In the colloquia, οἶδα is always rendered by a present tense in the Latin. ...
