Re: ETC: Where Orthography Affects the New Testament Text

This is really cool. And another great example of useful open data for biblical studies. Supported by an EU grant. Have people here been using the Amsterdam Database of New Testament Conjectural Emendation ? What is it most useful for? Yes. Most useful for historical insights on the exegetical diff...

Is this a linguistic issue or just a hermeneutical one?
The latter. Concessive interpretations come about when the information is counter to expectation. For example, rich people are not expected to become poor, but ...

Re: What is the difference between ἐδύνατο and ἠδύνατο?

In my view, δύναμαι ~ ἠδύνατο is an analogical remodeling based on θέλω ~ ἤθελον, except that the quantitative augment is actually etymologically correct for the latter.

Re: Photius' Library, 17th cent. Type Script

After spending a lot of the past year on looking at medieval manuscripts, the light bulb moment for me was think more about the inputs--how the pen moves across the parchment--instead of the output, as in the final shape of the letters.

Re: Needed - An Open, Trustworthy, Trusted Greek Text

But suppose we go the other route and create a text. What would it take to get street cred so that it can be used in academic publications and translations? The big problem is network effects. There is a lot of value in everyone working from the same text, and academics have settled on Nestle-Aland...

Do you why?

Is μὲν οὖν a constituent?
You'll sometimes see the spelling μενοῦν, which suggests that it can be. There's even one in Luke 11:28.

This sounds like a generic argument against any but the Nestle-Aland text, which is not open.
