Re: In Hebrews 10:13 what is the effect of the subjunctive?

Per BDAG, ἔως takes an aorist subjunctive when the commencement of the event is contingent upon circumstances.

Re: In Romans 11:15 who is doing the refusing/accepting?

I think your sudden realization is correct, but I don't think it's a Greek issue. Thank you. My concern is mostly the "αὐτῶν", whether the combination with a noun results in "their refusing" or "their being refused". Which is the normal koine usage? I'm afraid that, here, there is no normal usage, ...

Re: 1 John 5:20 and the Granville Sharp Rule

IIRC, Wallace requires both noun to denote a person, but in 1 John 5:20 the second noun is ζωή "life." Since it's a predicating construction, ζωή would have a person has a referent. Is that how Wallace reasons? I can't remember. I haven't looked at the book in at least five years. It's how I would ...

Re: 1 John 5:20 and the Granville Sharp Rule

Based on the above citations, it seems to me that 1 John 5:20 is a valid GS construction. Am I overlooking something? IIRC, Wallace requires both noun to denote a person, but in 1 John 5:20 the second noun is ζωή "life." Since it's a predicating construction, ζωή would have a person has a referent.

Acts 13:48 ἀκούοντα δὲ τὰ ἔθνη ἔχαιρον καὶ ἐδόξαζον τὸν λόγον τοῦ θεοῦ, καὶ ἐπίστευσαν ὅσοι ἦσαν τεταγμένοι εἰς ζωὴν αἰώνιον· From what I have read using a perfect links the effect to the event described.

Re: Imperatives and encouragement

And it's on my already-too-long reading list too. :oops: I read it when it came out and remember liking it. It's Sydney Lamb's neuro-cognitive framework, so it's a bit different compared to typical Berkley cognling His appendix about the relationship between linguistics and biblical studies at the ...

Re: In Acts 13:48 why the [effective] pluperfect?

A better word than "continuous" in the context of the meaning of the prefect would be "persistent."

'Continuous' can unintentionally imply a degree of dynamic action that doesn't exist for the perfect.

Is there a good cognitive-linguistic paper on Greek imperatives? Any pointers from the linguists? @MAubrey? @Stephen Carlson? @serunge?
(This ping feature didn't send me a notification.) I'm not aware of any.

Re: Infinitive Subjects of ἐγένετο

Thank you for all of the citations above. However, it should be readily* apparent that they are NOT like the Semitic egeneto structures in the gospels or LXX. (NB very well: I did not include Acts on purpose. That alone is a story that needs telling or exposure. AKA point #2.) *All of the quotation...
