Matthew 21.3; Mark 11.3

I would like to ask a question about Matthew 21.3: καὶ ἐάν τις ὑμῖν εἴπῃ τι, ἐρεῖτε ὅτι Ὁ κύριος αὐτῶν χρείαν ἔχει· εὐθὺς δὲ ἀποστελεῖ αὐτούς. and Mark 11.3: καὶ ἐάν τις ὑμῖν εἴπῃ Τί ποιεῖτε τοῦτο; εἴπατε Ὁ κύριος αὐτοῦ χρείαν ἔχει, καὶ εὐθὺς αὐτὸν ἀποστέλλει πάλιν ὧδε. I am particulary interested i...

Born of the Spirit

I have a question about John 3.8 "τὸ πνεῦμα ὅπου θέλει πνεῖ, καὶ τὴν φωνὴν αὐτοῦ ἀκούεις, ἀλλ' οὐκ οἶδας πόθεν ἔρχεται καὶ ποῦ ὑπάγει· οὕτως ἐστὶν πᾶς ὁ γεγεννημένος ἐκ τοῦ πνεύματος." In the context of Jesus' conversation with Nicodemus, the mysterious action of the wind would seem to refer to the ...

Re: Matthew 25.40

Thank you for this explanation. It helped me understand the construction, which I had found somewhat puzzling. And thanks again to everyone for the Forum which I find very stimulating.

Matthew 25.40

Hello again. I have greatly appreciated your explanations and comments in the past. This time I have a question about Matthew 25.40: καὶ ἀποκριθεὶς ὁ βασιλεὺς ἐρεῖ αὐτοῖς Ἀμὴν λέγω ὑμῖν, ἐφ' ὅσον ἐποιήσατε ἑνὶ τούτων τῶν ἀδελφῶν μου τῶν ἐλαχίστων, ἐμοὶ ἐποιήσατε. and particularly the translation of ...

Re: breadth, length, height and depth

Could you explain how you see the Italian translation saying something that this or other English translations do not? In the Italian translation, it is explicit that the breadth, length, height, and depth are attributes of Christ's love (i.e. the addition of "dell'amore di Cristo" = "of the love o...

breadth, length, height and depth

Hello again - I thought I'd keep you busy during this part of the summer when perhaps you have a little less to do, like me! (Not really because this week I'm painting our living room!) This time my question concerns Ephesians 3.18, 19: "...ἵνα ἐξισχύσητε καταλαβέσθαι σὺν πᾶσιν τοῖς ἁγίοις τί τὸ πλά...

Re: Matthew 6.8 "before you ask him"

Thanks again - you have greatly encouraged me.

For any Italian lovers, here is the exact Italian phrase concerning "αἰτῆσαι" in Matthew 6.8: "l'aorista sottolinea che non avviene nemmeno una volta."

Re: Matthew 6.8 "before you ask him"

I wish to thank all of the contributors for your enlightening comments. I don't know if the work I referred to would be considered a commentary. It is a four-volume presentation of the gospels published by the Libreria Editrice Vaticana (1988). A certain Gianfranco Nolli gives an explanation of the ...

Matthew 6.8 "before you ask him"

I have a question about Matthew 6.8: "μὴ οὖν ὁμοιωθῆτε αὐτοῖς, οἶδεν γὰρ ὁ πατὴρ ὑμῶν ὧν χρείαν ἔχετε πρὸ τοῦ ὑμᾶς αἰτῆσαι αὐτόν." "Be not therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him." (This new question is actually linked to my previous query abo...

Re: give us this day our daily bread

First of all, thank you all for your comments. I’ll try to answer both Stephens’ questions about emphasis, although I’m not sure this is the appropriate place as it does not concern the Greek text – please let me know. However, I will try to tie in some of the other comments which do concern the tex...
