Re: Use of the dative τῷ διαβόλῳ in Matthew 25:41

The dative in Matt 25.41 parallels the dative in Matt 25.34 and is reasonably understood in a corresponding way. 25.34 τὴν ἡτοιμασμένην ὑμῖν βασιλείαν ἀπὸ καταβολῆς κόσμου the kingdom kept in readiness for you since the foundation of the world I suppose this is what the grammarians call Dative of Ad...

Re: 1995 Filologia Neotestamentaria Articles

Sometimes writing personally to the author of an article produces a helpful result.

Re: 1 Cor 6:4

Within the Pauline corpus, we may note that the imperative is the final element in the sentence at Romans 12:14; 1 Corinthians 4:16; 7:21; 10:31; 11:33; 14:20; 16:1,13; Galatians 5:1; Ephesians 5:11; Philippians 4:4; Colossians 3:15; 1 Thessalonians 5:22; 1 Timothy 4:11; 5:22; 6:2; and Philemon 18....

Re: Can ἄνθρωπος in the singular refer to people in general?

Curious that BDAG doesn't provide what Dr Mounce requires.

In addition to Mike's quote from Epictetus, would Luke 18.2, where the judge neither fears God nor cares about human beings, fill the bill?

Re: κλωμενον in 1Cor. 11:24 is it unPauline?

There are images on the Münster website http://ntvmr.uni-muenster.de/manuscript-workspace but you would need to be registered in order to view Dabs1 (GA 0319). However, you could view the images of F (GA 010) and G (012) without registering. But is there anyway a problem in the syntax of τὸ σῶμα τὸ ...

Re: Rev 2:13 ο μαρτυς μου, ο πιστος [μου]?

The THGNT is up on the STEP Bible, somewhat hidden and hard to find. It is in ancient bibles menu at bottom under "other" and the apparatus is not currently available. David Instone-Brewer told me the apparatus wasn't supposed to be there but didn't tell me why. The SBLGNT apparatus covers similar ...

Re: τοῦτ᾽ εστιν

Okay, then, it seems that in Rom 1.12 it's simply the δέ that signals that an element of correction is coming in the explanatory clause.

Re: τοῦτ᾽ εστιν

Do you think there would be a difference in meaning between these two sentences (pretending, for the sake of argument, that the New Testament used both spellings)? τουτέστιν δέ συμπαρακληθῆναι ἐν ὑμῖν διὰ τῆς ἐν ἀλλήλοις πίστεως ὑμῶν τε καὶ ἐμοῦ. τοῦτο δέ ἐστιν συμπαρακληθῆναι ἐν ὑμῖν διὰ τῆς ἐν ἀλ...

Re: τοῦτ᾽ εστιν

Note that δέ can divide τοῦτο ἐστιν, so it seems still to be thought of as two words here: τοῦτο δέ ἐστιν συμπαρακληθῆναι ἐν ὑμῖν διὰ τῆς ἐν ἀλλήλοις πίστεως ὑμῶν τε καὶ ἐμοῦ. Lightfoot draws a distinction between τοῦτ᾽ εστιν and τοῦτο δέ ἐστιν: "The difference is important. Τοῦτο δέ ἐστιν is corre...
