Jesus' Speech in Matthew

Hi all, I know this is not a greek specific question but I wonder if anyone can help me - I've been trying on accordance and can't figure out a way to do the search (I think it's possible with Logos though). I'm wanting to find the percentage of words that are Jesus' speech per chapter in Matthew (I...

Re: Blessed by the Spirit

Hey Tim, I want to say "yes" to your initial question but the way I see it you're asking something different. With or without ἐν the dative can be instrumental or locative (look at Wallace's Beyond the Basics he has a category called "Dative of Sphere" or something like that). The question I am aski...

Re: Blessed by the Spirit

Wow, you leave a thread on the internet for one second... So this is where I am now - thanks all for your help! a. I think the value of ignoring context is twofold. (1) I learn better what the Greek is demanding of me as opposed to what the context is demanding of me (those are different though clos...

Re: Blessed by the Spirit

With regards to expecting Μακάριοι τῷ πνεύματι οἱ πτωχοὶ I agree. I'm still wondering whether the option exists though and what the most likely way to express "The poor are blessed by the Spirit" would be. I don't think the Spirit would need to be the subject of the verb.

Blessed by the Spirit

In Matt 5:5 the beatitudes begin Μακάριοι οἱ πτωχοὶ τῷ πνεύματι Could this be translated "The poor are blessed by the Spirit". I am interested in the reasoning more than the correct translation (or sense). My suspicion is that the dative would need to be attached to "Μακάριοι" rather than "οἱ πτωχοὶ...

Re: Times New Roman Greek font

I've had this problem with Times New Roman on Fedora for ages (now running FC21). I quite like FreeSerif though, it's a pretty good substitute. Also, I think Stephen is on the money here. If it's true that Times New Roman should support all the characters, it wouldn't surprise me if our Times New Ro...

Re: Tips or resources on learning all the prepositions at on

I've been thinking of putting something together for a little while so this encouraged me to have a go with the first one.
Should I include others? Are my details right? Any suggestions welcome.

Re: Vocabulary Pictures

I've been thinking of drawing some pictures (who knows when though) for prepositions. It's easy enough to draw a box something like: εἰς -> ἐν -> ἐκ I've been wanting to include all that occur 10 or more times in the NT though. Of course, there are some that are more difficult to visualise and espec...

Re: Typing in Polytonic Greek in Ubuntu OS

I use Fedora (with Gnome3) with the polytonic Greek keyboard which I assume is quite similar - is this not adequate for your needs?
There is also the "compose" key which is worth being aware of (typically right-alt).

Function of "ἐξ" and "ἐν" in Luke 10:27

The relevant portion of Luke 10:27 ἀγαπήσεις κύριον τὸν θεόν σου ἐξ ὅλης [τῆς] καρδίας σου καὶ ἐν ὅλῃ τῇ ψυχῇ σου καὶ ἐν ὅλῃ τῇ ἰσχύϊ σου καὶ ἐν ὅλῃ τῇ διανοίᾳ σου I understand the instrumental use of ἐν (which is basically what I see going on here) but I'm interested in the function of ἐξ specifica...
