And as much as I love Latin, it still bugs me to see Greek works listed with no Greek titles!
Anybody else feel that way?
Not me.

Re: episthmh root

πίστις is related to πείθομαι.
ἐπιστήμη is related to ἐπίσταμαι, which itself appears to be very old compound of the forebears of ἐπί and ἵστημι.

Re: 1995 Filologia Neotestamentaria Articles

Sometimes writing personally to the author of an article produces a helpful result. Dr Hatina is apparently on the faculty of Trinity Western University, Canada. https://www.twu.ca/profile/thomas-r-hatina Thanks Tony, I've never done that before, but I have heard of people having success with this ...

Re: Grounding status of participle in 1 Peter 3:7

Personally, I found Steve’s work (and Levinsohn’s) extremely helpful in my own text-critical work, especially for evaluating textual variants that relate to discourse functions. Could you give a specific example or two? The presence of the article in Gal 2:6 comes to mind, as does inclusion of δέ i...

Re: Grounding status of participle in 1 Peter 3:7

So Steve, assuming that your reading of the text is valid in all its particulars, what difference does it make? Should we draw different conclusions from the more traditional grammatical and syntactical reading of the text? If so, what? Personally, I found Steve’s work (and Levinsohn’s) extremely h...

Re: 1 Cor 6:4

Here's an online source that covers many of the key issues, though it doesn't fully discuss the interesting constituent order. Perhaps Stephen could offer some comments on this. That is a really helpful paper in laying out the issues. I'm too flat out right now to get into the nitty-gritty, but her...

Re: How to Identify a Permissive/Causative Middle Voice Verb?

But I would submit that this exercise in semantics is beside point of the middle, which is in fact to deprofile the agent. Is it really "besides the point"? Correct. And your analogy with human and beastly passives is gold, definitely worth stealing. I'm curious why certain possible semantic featur...

Re: 1 Cor 6:4

Personally I'm having a hard time seeing that it could be anything other than a question. It might be helpful to list which interpretations you'd like to consider in more detail (a good critical commentary like the ICC should do this). Punctuating Paul is one of the most challenging parts of underst...

Re: How to Identify a Permissive/Causative Middle Voice Verb?

Often when some people say "not a true a middle," what they mean is "not (directly) reflexive." But scholars of the middle have known for a long time that the reflexive is just one of several senses of the middle, and not the most frequent for that matter. So part of the problem is that people mean ...

Re: Books Similar to Quasten’s Patrology

Some translations are listed, but yes the focus is on the editions. Perhaps, The Encyclopedia of Early Christianity is what you're looking for. The reference section of its articles often have cites to modern translations.
