Re: Luke 22:20--What is being poured out?

Yeah, there is a container-contained metonymy with the cup-wine and a wine-blood metaphor in the verse. Some translators resolve these conceptual links; others don't. Because of this, I would not see the NIV as (necessarily) understanding the grammar any differently, only that resolving these concep...

Re: Luke 22:20--What is being poured out?

Neither (1) nor (2) appear relevant. What's relevant is the case, and τὸ ὑπὲρ ὑμῶν ἐκχυννόμενον agrees with τοῦτο τὸ ποτήριον, not with τῷ αἵματί μου.

Re: Dynamic Syntax

For all the world, this reminds me of: https://www.bu.edu/mahoa/hale_art.html *** No, if you read his description of how to read Latin, it sounds like he is assuming the same kind of things as you are talking about with "dynamic syntax." I like the guy's approach a lot because I do think that we sh...

Re: Dynamic Syntax

I had never heard of Dynamic Syntax before and I’ve heard of a lot of them. It looks really close to generative grammar and formal semantics except that the trees are generated top-left to down-right instead of the opposite order. Personally, I don’t think generative grammar has proved very helpful ...

Re: Please help me to identify the letters in greek

Another: "τῷ ςεναγμῷ τῶν οωτερίαν ουνεξευγμένην" - Here I did found that he was quoting Nazianzen and I found who was Gregory Nazianzen but from which of Nazianzen's books is he quoting? Not sure because of the misspellings. The first and the thrid word are ok. The second one I was able to find it ...

Re: Use of the article with ἐν

The next noun we'll look at is ἡ δεξιά, the right hand. It is found both with and without the article after ἐν. With the article, it is fairly straightforward: Matt 27:29 …, καὶ πλέξαντες στέφανον ἐξ ἀκανθῶν ἐπέθηκαν ἐπὶ ⸂τῆς κεφαλῆς⸃ αὐτοῦ καὶ κάλαμον ⸂ἐν τῇ δεξιᾷ⸃ αὐτοῦ , … Rev 2:1 Τάδε λέγει ὁ κρ...

Use of the article with ἐν

Following our look at various grammars on the use of the article with (proper) prepositional objects, I want to look at, in this topic, examples with the preposition ἐν, especially (near) minimal pairs. I welcome your thoughts about these cases. First up is ἐν γαστρί vs. ἐν τῇ κοιλίᾳ. The nouns γαστ...

Re: Eph 2:8 τοῦτο ... τὸ δῶρον

But you could also be right, or it could be that it's both and a first speaker of the language wouldn't even notice the difference. From what I can tell of ancient native speakers who interpreted the passage, they placed much less (indeed virtually no) weight on the gender of τοῦτο in their interpr...
