Can't think of a Koinē NT equivalent to this...

I came across this some time ago and occasionally make use of it... apart from PROIEL I can't think of a Koinē NT equivalent that really comes close: http://corpus.quran.com/ What's especialy remarkable, is that it seems to be the work mainly of one person (see connected blog). All the "bits" are ou...

Re: Jn 17:5 position of παρὰ σοί

Just passing on the wisdom of others but S. Levinsohn's arguments in Chapter 3 of his Discourse Features of the Greek New Testament would argue that this is end of clause emphasis - or using his technical term "Dominant focal element" and his mark-ups of John 17 confirm that.

Re: πλάνη active or passive sense.

I thought that Lee and Horsley had not been quiet and that they'd declared the project dead (or at least permanently stalled). I could try and find out more today if I go in to the library. As usual spoke too soon... a google search turned this up: "A 10-year project is now under way to produce a n...

Re: πλάνη active or passive sense.

Has anyone considered or is anyone working on a revision to MM? John Lee and G. H. R Horsley were, but nothing has been heard on that front for a decade or so. I thought that Lee and Horsley had not been quiet and that they'd declared the project dead (or at least permanently stalled). I could try ...

Re: BART and Interlinears

Just in case anybody missed this thread the first time round, all of Levinsohn's discourse annotations of the whole NT are still up for free access as PDFs at: http://www-01.sil.org/~levinsohns/BART.html These are enormously helpful. For those who have access to Runge's analyses via Logos these work...

Re: κολασις vs κολαζω

There is no linguistic necessity for the semantic range of a cognate noun to fully reflect the semantic range of the verb it is cognate with.

We're much better off looking at the usage of the verb and the usage of the noun.

Re: βούλεται in 1 Cor. 12:11?

βούλεται is a third person singular VERB. There is no pronoun in that clause. In greek the verb is not inflected for gender. Since πνευμα is the agent of the main verb in the main clause of 12:11 and the implicit agent of the participle διαιρουν it would be extremely odd for the spirit to not be the...

Re: NT Greek meets Semitic

What has been strange to watch, and alluded to in Fassberg's article, is the very slow recognition of this kind of work within NT scholarship. Very compartmentalized scholarship. People playing with different sets of cards. I don't find this strange at all. It might be a little sad, but not that od...

Re: NT Greek meets Semitic

Some quotes for you Stephen "Based on the epigraphic material, Naveh has maintained that Aramaic was more common than Hebrew in daily life in the Second Temple period, yet Hebrew was still widely spoken.67 Bernard Spolsky, building on the work of others, suggests that the lan­\guages spoken by commu...
