Re: In Philippians 2:2 what does the second κατα imply?

It's Eph 2:2... The two prepositional phrases are coordinate, and not in apposition. By that I think you mean this: "The Philippians' behavior is according to τὸν αἰῶνα which coordinates with τὸν ἄρχοντα τῆς ἐξουσίας τοῦ ἀέρος τοῦ πνεύματος." So are τὸν αἰῶνα and τὸν ἄρχοντα different entities that...

In Philippians 2:2 what does the second κατα imply?

Phil 2:2 mGNT ἐν αἷς ποτε περιεπατήσατε κατὰ τὸν αἰῶνα τοῦ κόσμου τούτου κατὰ τὸν ἄρχοντα τῆς ἐξουσίας τοῦ ἀέρος τοῦ πνεύματος τοῦ νῦν ἐνεργοῦντος ἐν τοῖς υἱοῖς τῆς ἀπειθείας I might expect there to be only κατὰ with an implied comma and to read the second κατὰ phrase as being in apposition to the ...

Re: επι της θαλασση

Revelation 5:13 there is this part επι της θαλασση which translated is "on the sea". I'm wondering why John would use επι instead of εν or εις because it doesn't make sense when it's translated "on the sea" as far as the created things mentioned in the verse. I would think that "in the sea" would m...

Re: επι της θαλασση

It should read "By the sea and all that is in them" ἐπὶ τῆς θαλάσσης ἅ ἐστίν καὶ τὰ ἐν αὐτοῖς πάντα על־הים־אשר־ובם־כל על־הים־וכל־אשר־בם It may or may not be inconsequential but there seems to be a textual issue at work here: TR 5:13 καὶ πᾶν κτίσμα ὃ ἐστιν ἐν τῷ οὐρανῷ καὶ ἐν τῇ γῇ καὶ ὑποκάτω τῆς γ...

Re: Is "asteios"

... Stack exchange is largely a crap shoot. The individual's "criterion" for his belief that it derives from ἀστήρ simply shows that he is ignorant of linguistics. Actually, the cited text claims that asteios derives "from aster, which means "star", not from asteios which means "city" ". This sugge...

In 1 John 1:1 should it be "word of life" or "living expression"?

mGNT 1 John 1:1-3 1 ὃ ἦν ἀπ’ ἀρχῆς ὃ ἀκηκόαμεν ὃ ἑωράκαμεν τοῖς ὀφθαλμοῖς ἡμῶν ὃ ἐθεασάμεθα καὶ αἱ χεῖρες ἡμῶν ἐψηλάφησαν περὶ τοῦ λόγου τῆς ζωῆς 2 καὶ ἡ ζωὴ ἐφανερώθη καὶ ἑωράκαμεν καὶ μαρτυροῦμεν καὶ ἀπαγγέλλομεν ὑμῖν τὴν ζωὴν τὴν αἰώνιον ἥτις ἦν πρὸς τὸν πατέρα καὶ ἐφανερώθη ἡμῖν 3 ὃ ἑωράκαμεν κ...

I think your sudden realization is correct, but I don't think it's a Greek issue.
Thank you. My concern is mostly the "αὐτῶν", whether the combination with a noun results in "their refusing" or "their being refused". Which is the normal koine usage?

In Romans 11:15 who is doing the refusing/accepting?

I've always read this as God refusing/accepting the Jews but it suddenly occurred to me that it might refer to the Jews refusing/accepting the gospel: Romans 11:15 εἰ γὰρ ἡ ἀποβολὴ αὐτῶν καταλλαγὴ κόσμου τίς ἡ πρόσλημψις εἰ μὴ ζωὴ ἐκ νεκρῶν Which is the correct reading/understanding? Note: If you wa...
