Re: Abbott-Smith note on γινώσκω vs οἶδα

No, not really. οἶδα simply has the same range of meaning, or close to it, as our English "know." It's used frequently and commonly in Greek in this sense, and it's normally used as a present tense despite it's o-grade perfect stem (Yes, Stephen, if you are reading this, although my earlier discuss...

Can I regard tenses this way?
Sounds like "phasal aspect," and no it doesn't work for Greek.

παρακαλοῦντες doesn't need anything supplied at all. Its a reciprocal middle.
Middle? Looks active to me.

Re: γλωσσόκομον - bag, box, or any container?

Boy this is an obscure term. LSJ is no help: they only have the masculine term, which means something else.

I'm betting that the NT lexica are getting their meaning from the LXX 2 Chron 24:8, 10, 11, where the term is used four times.

Re: περιβόλαιον in 1 Corinthians 11:15

I’ve read all these articles and Martin is wrong, terribly wrong here. At a conceptual level, the metaphor of “covering” for testicle does not work because a testicle is not a covering. It does not have the function of covering, nor does it look like a covering. If there is some metaphor for testicl...

Re: τἄνθρωπος

Crasis of the article is also found in Papias, ἀλλὰ τοῖς τἀληθῆ διδάσκουσιν (ap. Eus. HE 3.39.3).

It is striking that in all these admittedly few cases, the article in crasis is preceded by an article (with or without an intervening enclitic τε).

Lest you thought Paul was the only one ever to say μὴ γένοιτο!
No need to leave the New Testament to find a non-Pauline usage. It's found in Luke 20:16.

Re: Syntax in Josephus Antiquities

The so-called "sentence accent" can also be for a Topicalization, Contextualization and thus non-Focal. So I find "sentence accent" unhelpful by itself. (See my comments immediately above.) Mike will have to define "sentence accent" but I've been gravitating to a position like that (it basically si...

Re: Syntax in Josephus Antiquities

Yes, that's what I'd call it. Clitics create syntactic discontinuities for purposes of phonological phrasing. Enclitics like the unaccented pronouns and forms of εἰμί tend to attach to the clauses sentence accent. +1 εἴσιν οὗτοι υἱοὶ θεοῦ - This is a weird one. I don't imagine this one happening. M...
