Re: Perseus Scaife Viewer

Excellent. Playing a bit with it, but I don't see how to check morphology (parsing).

Re: First time visit

Welcome, good to have you here. To answer your question, there is no aorist of εἰμί. The aorist is supplied by other forms such as the aorist of γίνομαι (ἐγενόμην).

Normally the article is not used when the infinitive is being used as the subject or object.
Having made that statement, I found this in my daily NT reading today:

"Normally" does not mean "never..." :o

Colloquia of the Hermeneumata Pseudodositheana

Working through the Colloquia of the Hermeneumata Pseudodositheana, mainly mining it for interesting sections to spring on my Latin students, found this in the Greek: ἑνεχυρον θέλεις; μὴ γένοιτο, οὐ χρείαν ἔχω...

Re: Can verbs have a case?

This is where it's helpful to be a bit more precise with our metalanguage. Just to expand a bit for clarity: Finite verbs do not have case, finite meaning that the verb is marked for person and number. Participle derives from the Latin particeps, which means "to have a share in, sharing." Participle...

Re: Understanding Randal Buth's example of the Perfect tense he presents to critique Campell

That would set a dangerous precedent. Think of how many NT Greek textbooks and reference works they would need to overhaul! Many thousands of seminary students have been drinking from that well for several decades. They become militant defenders of a fossilized 19th-century language model that prob...
