Re: Determining Which Version a Greek Text Belongs

Please use correct language. Version should not be used of different editions of the Greek NT, since version by definition means a translation. The Vulgate is a version, Aland’s Greek NT is an edition etc.

Re: Conjunctions

The most complete discussion of conjunctions is in John Dewar Denniston's Greek Particles. Oxford University Press. It is a really outstanding piece of work.

Re: Simple question on the 28th Nestle-Aland Greek NT

Here is a response about Aland ed 28. 1. The new addition adds the readings of Papyri 117-128. 2. The apparatus now omits all conjectures--though with some reluctance. 3. The text of the catholic epistles has been revised on the basis of the Editio critica maiora, i.e. the 28th ed. here is now the e...

Re: Matthew 16:18 πἑτρος, πἑτρα

Jonathon, this is a play off Isaiah 51:2ff. There Abraham and Sarah are the rock from which Israel, God’s ekklesia is hewn. Peter if the counterpart to Abraham in Matthew (see Matt 1:1-2). Petra clearly refers to Peter. Ed Krentz
