Re: Intro - Matt

Finally, firmly perplexed by prepositions and why the take the case that they do. In some works I have read that they help clarify the use of the case, and yet in many instances it seems that they are used to denote something that is not the normal use of the case. Looking forward to one day gettin...

Re: The Greek Verb Revisited

I'll speak the quality of the chapters that are not mine. I think they're all of a high caliber.

Re: Middle and Passive Voice in Galatians 4:12-14

Addendum to the above question. On New Testament usage: The verb εὐαγγελίζω is usually used in the middle, as above, or passive. Paul can use either, but usually, he uses Middle, so Passive might be notable as a departure. Only in Revelation do we see it used twice in the active voice. http://bible...

Re: Introduction to tense and aspect

The Oxford handbooks tend to be of good quality and that continues to be true for the Tense and Aspect one. It isn't going to give you insight necessarily into Greek itself, but it is a good resource for much current thought in the field with excellent bibliographies for knowing more.

Re: Opinions about the book "Basics of Verbal Aspect in Biblical Greek"

Dear Mike, reading thru your thesis I stumbled on that claim: "The Apocalypse of John, written by a non-native speaker provides more opportunity for finding ungrammatical clauses than most texts". Having studied the Greek text of Revelation for some years I have to say, that your sentence is more t...

Re: Opinions about the book "Basics of Verbal Aspect in Biblical Greek"

Any comment on why γράφειν 'grafen, λύειν 'lyen would be with /e/ instead of /i/? The shift of /ei/ to /i/ is often considered to be among the earliest shifts of the Great Greek Vowel Shift. It's been so long, that I genuinely can't remember... If you haven't read it recently, I would recommend a q...
