Re: In Habakkuk 2:4 LXX, what does ἐκ πίστεώς μου tell us?

Actually, it's still a bit mysterious to me. I would have expected Paul or have a cook (spell checker's take on Habakkuk) to have used dia and that's how most translate it). What does ek tell us here? Well the two avenues you'd need to pursue here would be (1) How is ἐκ used with ζάω normally? (2) ...

Re: Todd Scacewater - Discourse Analysis of the New Testament Writings

Fontes Press seem to be on a roll with the discourse studies - here is one upcoming on 1 peter by Starwalt. Perhaps a book length treatment of his chapter in Scacewater's book? https://www.amazon.co.uk/Discourse-Analysis-Peter-Studies-Koine/dp/1948048345/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=greek+participl...

Re: The Perfect Storm - October release?

From the Amazon blurb: Nowhere are the chaotic debates surrounding contemporary aspect theory more heated than in discussions of the theory's application to Hellenistic Greek, and especially its understanding of the semantics of the Greek perfect tense. I haven't been hearing heated and chaotic deb...

Re: Todd Scacewater - Discourse Analysis of the New Testament Writings

Well, I guess I should say then, I personally don't know what I would have done with a more descriptive title!

Not the most descriptive titles, but nice to see the contributors, thanks.
Everyone is commenting on the discourse structure of book of the NT they have assigned. I'm not sure what a more descriptive title would really be.

Re: Grammar on Verbs

Joseph Fantin's book on imperatives is probably the best monograph for that mood: https://amzn.to/2V5P3jG As Stirling noted, Rijksbaron's introduction to the Greek Verb is arguably the best overview there is for the verb generally: https://amzn.to/3hUekHm Willmot is good, but you'll need to wade th...

Re: Albuquerque on Mark 2:10

...to mash up linguistic [sounding] analysis with the new(-ish) fad in Gospels studies... There. Fixed it. :D OUCH! It's just that the function and thus meaning of grammatical categories exists at such a subconscious level, that to talk about author & audience as agents of grammatical meaning (invi...

Re: ἐν (τῷ) κόσμῳ
