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. [intr.] ἐξεστώς (Judg 4:21 B) and ἐξεστηκυῖα 1 Km 4:13; plpf. 2 sg....

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: ἐξίστημι in Acts 8:11

I have always read it as intransitive here, quite surprised to see the commentaries and several translations take it as transitive. αὐτούς. Accusative direct object of ἐξεστακέναι. Culy, M.

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...

Re: Blessed by the Spirit

Again, this makes very little sense. From what I can determine: πτωχοί is nominative, not accusative. 1450.

Re: Revelation 21:5

I think it would be unlikely even for the writer of Revelation to have an unattached subordinate clause.

BTW, these kinds of things happen all the time, and are often a sign that one's Greek is improving.

Re: 5x1 definition challenge

Continuing with this theme, however, I wonder if it would not be much more beneficial for a project that produces beginner level example sentences to help solidify the understanding. i.e. {Greek}{English gloss} {Example sentences} I found that even as a beginner, If a quick search in Accordance for...
