Re: Textual variant in Jude 1:6 - αλυτοις

The expression ἀλύτοις δεσμοῖς is found in Aeschylus Prometheus vinctus L.155 εἰ γάρ μ' ὑπὸ γῆν νέρθεν θ' Αἵδου τοῦ νεκροδέγμονος εἰς ἀπέραντον Τάρταρον ἧκεν, δεσμοῖς ἀλύτοις ἀγρίως πελάσας, ὡς μήτε θεὸς μήτε τις ἄλλος τοῖσδ' ἐγεγήθει. νῦν δ' αἰθέριον κίνυγμ' ὁ τάλας ἐχθροῖς ἐπίχαρτα πέπονθα. Maybe...

Re: Online Texts (Byzantine Majority; Westcott-Hort)

Thank you, Barry. But I think the choice of the text matters. Maybe that is why the Greek Bible.com and the German Bible Society choose the uncontroversial texts. Yes, for the purposes of learning the language, it doesn't matter which text to use especially when we don't have many choices. I have b...

Re: Online Texts (Byzantine Majority; Westcott-Hort)

I have recognised some of their mistakes. Only because their reading speeds are slow and medium, I have been listening to them. Maybe this is why Marilyn Phemister has been introduced by Chinese Greek internet. I have been learning Mark verse by verse with the limited resources. This is how I have ...

Re: ἐξίστημι in Acts 8:11

And so part of the confusion (per the OP) is that BDAG says this: ἐξίστημι w. the Koine by-form ἐξιστάνω (B-D-F §93; Mlt-H. 241) Ac 8:9 (v.l. ἐξιστῶν fr. ἐξιστάω) fut. ἐκστησώ LXX; 1 aor. ἐξέστησα; 2 aor. ἐξέστην; pf. ἐξέστακα, ptc.

Re: 1 Tim 2:1-4 - antecedent of τοῦτο in τοῦτο καλὸν

I would take it as the entire preceding clasue. The clause starting with ἵνα? The other possibility I saw was πάντων ποιεῖσθαι δεήσεις κτλ. This is the antecedent: Παρακαλῶ οὖν πρῶτον πάντων ποιεῖσθαι δεήσεις, προσευχάς, ἐντεύξεις, εὐχαριστίας, ὑπὲρ πάντων ἀνθρώπων, ὑπὲρ βασιλέων καὶ πάντων τῶν ἐν ...

Re: Hendiadys?

[ Gotcha! I was indeed wondering about the N-C-V construction as I typed this out last night. I like the epexegetical infinitive/infinitive of purpose idea. That does make a lot of sense to me, but, in my elementary understanding I am still suspicious as to whether or not Jesus is describing the sa...

Re: Blessed by the Spirit

Hi Barry Hofstetter, thank you for discussing first. -1450 The Greek dative does duty for three cases: the dative proper, and two lost cases, the instrumental and the locative. a. The dative derives its name (ἡ δοτικὴ πτῶσις, casus dativus) from the use with διδόναι ( 1469 ). There is a link to the...
