Re: ὡμοιώθη in parables of Matthew 13.24; 18.23; 22.2

Gnomic sounds right for this aorist. I do wonder if they are preferred in judgment contexts. "Deponent" is deprecated terminology; "middle" is better. What I think is going on is that Carson views "passive" narrowly as having an external agent in mind, which is not the...

Bill, Brant Pitre has written an entire book on the subject, Jesus and the Last Supper, where he argues that it is actually John who is misunderstood today. I recommend you read it and come back here with any questions that come up.

Bill Ross wrote: April 7th, 2021, 7:32 pm Okay, then is it specifically saying one animal was being killed or is it probably referring to all the lambs in the process of being slaughtered for the passover?
It's generic, so it doesn't matter.

Re: Previous reference in Hebrews?

Hi Seth, the big issue is context. When a word is ambiguous between a person and place, and it's surrounded by other adjacent places, here, different parts of the temple, the reader is really primed to go with the place sense.

Re: Gal. 1:15-20 σαρκὶ καὶ αἵματι... τὸν ἀδελφὸν

I am looking for a plausible, coherent reading, but it is not the only possible reading. But isn't the conventional reading already a plausible, coherent reading? It's not enough to find some other reading that could be possible (since lots of readings are "possible" if you're willing to ...
