Re: Romans 16.7 - "Natural Gender" and "Arbitrary Gender"?

I think that within the logic of the grammar, your question ultimately rests on the interpretation of the word ἐπίσημος and understanding its idiomatic usages. They are either (A) two of the apostles who in the view of others stand out among the apostles for being Paul's relatives and his fellow pr...

Romans 16.7 - "Natural Gender" and "Arbitrary Gender"?

Well, I finally passed Greek I with an overall grade of 95%. And, it's been several weeks since I've looked at the text books so I'm finding out really fast that "if you don't use it, you lose it :oops: ." Question (I hope this is the place to ask this?): While discussing "aner" and "gune" my proff....

Re: Beginners: how are you learning? how is it going?

Thank you for the responses. Just finished 2 Aorists - which, at times seem to just go off completely on their own. This is something that is *EXTREMELY* frustrating to me: You can learn the paradigmatic charts & then many times the words (e.g., Verbs, Adjectives, Nouns) do not follow the rules tha...

Re: Beginners: how are you learning? how is it going?

I am presently taking classes on-line from Dr. Maury Robertson's "Greek for Everyone." Just started my 2nd semester - have worked my way up to verbal tense-formatives. Good grief - and I thought the noun declensions were rough (actually, believe it or not I had the most trouble with the 3-3 adjectiv...

Re: Best online Septuagint?

This may seem like an ignorant question, but when I look up a passage in this LXX it doesn't seem to match the chapter-verse(s) of other translations or even the BHS (which I also recently purchased with morphological tagging). Right - the numbering of Psalms in the Septuagint differs from the numb...

Re: Beginners: how are you learning? how is it going?

I realize this thread is quite old, but wanted to inquire a bit into this subject. Several years ago I was reading a heavily exegetical work edited by Kostenberger & Schreiner. The authors kept using syntactical references (I didn't even really know what syntax was at the time :oops: ) to the infini...

Re: Best online Septuagint?

Okay - So I just purchased the LXX with Kraft/Taylor/Wheeler Morphology and LEH Lexicon from Olive Tree (the Bible software I use). This may seem like an ignorant question, but when I look up a passage in this LXX it doesn't seem to match the chapter-verse(s) of other translations or even the BHS (w...

Re: BDAG, I Tim. 2.12 [and] ἀνήρ?

Okay - Many thanks to everyone who posted thus far. Interesting & helpful. It has been through much trial & error over the years that I have learned to read lexicons very carefully - attending to semicolons & periods specifically. The em dash (----) is confusing. Even more confusing is BDAG's compar...
