Re: θυσίας in Leviticus 2. 3

This question seems to be about neither Greek nor Hebrew, but English! I think the confusion is coming from the 1611 archaic usage of "meat" which then meant what we now mean by "a meal" or "food" in general. The context (Leviticus 2:1) specifies that this θυσια/מנחה is not animal flesh but grain f...

Re: Checking the Translation of an Extract From a Greek Text

Homilies on Stephen (attributed to Gregory of Nyssa), extract from homily 2: “Προφῆται μὲν γὰρ διέλαμψαν μετὰ τὴν ἐκείνου παρουσίαν· μᾶλλον δὲ ἢ πρὸ ἐκείνης. Ἀμυδρᾶς γὰρ οὔσης ἔτι τῆς προφητείας ταῖς εὐαγγελικαῖς τῶν Γραμματέων ἐκβάσεσιν, ὁ Σωτὴρ ἐλθὼν εἰς τὸν κόσμον, πάντας ἐλάμπρυνε, καὶ διεσάφησ...

Re: θυσίας in Leviticus 2. 3

Mindy, remember that this forum is for the discussion of biblical Greek, although it's true that where the LXX is involved occasional discussion of Hebrew arises. In this case the LXX is singularly unhelpful to answer your question: καὶ τὸ λοιπὸν ἀπὸ τῆς θυσίας Ἀαρὼν καὶ τοῖς υἱοῖς αὐτοῦ, ἅγιον τῶν ...

Re: Translation of the Word Telos

A bit of context does help: 'Αμφότερα δὴ οὖν, καὶ τὸ καθόλου τέλος, καὶ τὸ ἑκάστου πέρας ἔκρυψεν ἀφ' ἡμῶν ὁ Λόγος (καὶ γὰρ καὶ ἐν τῷ καθόλου τὸ ἑκάστου τέλος ἐστὶ, καὶ ἐν τῷ ἑκάστου τέλει τὸ καθόλου συνάγεται)... Athanasius is discussing how the Lord keeps the knowledge our deaths and of the end of ...

Re: Translation of the Word Telos

Where in Schaff is this and what is he translating? My reading of the Greek is somewhat different than his, apparently. Καὶ γὰρ καὶ ἐν καθόλου τὸ ἑκάστου τέλος ἐστὶ, καὶ ἐν τῷ ἑκάστου τέλει τὸ καθόλου συνάγεται. "For also in the universal is the end of each thing, and in each thing the end of the un...

Re: ἡγιασμένος (Perfect participle of holy/sanctified/ἁγιάζω)

I think the temporal aspect of the perfect participle is relative to the future tense main verb. The action of the participle precedes the action of the main verb. At some point in the future the action of ἡγιασμένον occurs, and at a yet subsequent point the state described by ἔσται becomes a reali...

And as much as I love Latin, it still bugs me to see Greek works listed with no Greek titles!
Anybody else feel that way? (Yes, I understand the historical reasons why they are done that way, but that doesn't make it valid.)

Re: episthmh root

BTW, real easy these days to use actual Greek fonts, and that is the preferred method for writing Greek on this forum.
