πέμψαντός in J. 6.38?

Not sure where to place this, but, just have a question about this verse if allowed. ὅτι καταβέβηκα ἀπὸ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ οὐχ ἵνα ⸁ποιῶ τὸ θέλημα τὸ ἐμὸν ἀλλὰ τὸ θέλημα τοῦ πέμψαντός με (NA28). After hearing an assertion made about the aorist participle in this passage, I have spent a couple of hours toni...

Re: Codex Regius (GA 019 - Le)?

I'm not sure what you are looking for. This manuscript seems to be discussed in various works, Wikipedia refers to some here: References Further reading I'm also not sure what you mean by "relatively early", is it 8th century? Yes, ca. 8th cent., but, it is a majuscule obviously copied from a paren...

Codex Regius (GA 019 - Le)?

I came across Codex Regius recently & have been reading about it. Not sure why I don't read much about this codex since it's relatively early & it's my understanding that it's approx. 5th in line of the great uncial MSS (i.e., Vaticanus, Sinaiticus, Alexandrinus, Ephraemi, Regius). I understand that...

Re: Pronunciation of the Article "Ho"?

*Sort of like when folks say "Lωgωs" in English (which drives me insane). To me, this is a clue the speaker has not had formal Greek training (& immediately causes me to be suspect of anything they claim "in the Greek"). Same thing in this situation - or no? Well, it looks like then that every pers...

Re: Pronunciation of the Article "Ho"?

*Okay, thanks for the responses. But, (& pls. pardon my ignorance here) - it seems as if I'm reading conflicting info.? I realize there's much debate over the precise pronunciation of ancient Koine. But, to me, an omicron & omega respectively make the sounds they're supposed to make? *Sort of like ...

Pronunciation of the Article "Ho"?

*Quick question: I recently heard a man claiming to be well versed in exegesis pronouncing the article ὁ as "Ho" with the long sounding O as in an ὧ (he was quoting John 20.28)? He does this type of thing all the time & I'm wondering if I'm missing something? Is this acceptable in, say, translitera...

Re: Present Participial ὑπάρχων of Phil. 2.6?

Not the least of the problems in this thread (and I am convinced that this thread does not belong in any Beginners Forum) is that the key verb of the participle in question is ὑπάρχειν. It's well worth a long look at the entries for this verb in both BDAG and LSJ. However close it may seem to be to...

Re: Present Participial ὑπάρχων of Phil. 2.6?

My (elementary) understanding is that when doing exegesis-proper, we should search for the same words & forms under consideration in the current (1) chapter, (2) book, (3) author, (4) testament (OT or NT), (5) LXX, (6) papyri, (7) ECF, etc. Yes, I should have probably pointed you that direction fir...
