Re: A Chiasm in 2 Corinthians 13:3-5?

I didn't think to check my THGNT. Yes, they agree that verse 3 starts a new sentence. That's at least encouraging. Thanks!

A Chiasm in 2 Corinthians 13:3-5?

In 2 Corinthians 13:3, both the Nestle Aland and UBS make επει (since) a continuation of Paul's thought beginning in verse 1: "...οὐ φείσομαι, ἐπεὶ δοκιμὴν ζητεῖτε..." "...I will not spear [anyone], since you are seeking proof..." What I'm exploring is the possibility that Paul actually began a new ...

Re: Articular Infinitive

Thanks to both of you. I was almost certain this was the case but I wanted to be sure. And thank you, Jean for your examples. No points off for missing diacritics.

Regards,
Rob

Articular Infinitive

In an articular infinitive, does the infinitive always follow immediately after the article or can they be separated by several words. For instance, John 17:5; καὶ νῦν δόξασόν με σύ, ⸀πάτερ, παρὰ σεαυτῷ τῇ δόξῃ ⸁ᾗ εἶχον ⸂πρὸ τοῦ τὸν κόσμον εἶναι παρὰ σοί. According to Wallace, this would be an infin...

Re: 1 John 5:20 and the Granville Sharp Rule

Excellent! Thank you, Steven. I was almost certain that ζωή should be taken as a personal noun given its referent. I'm curious as to why Wallace omitted the passage from the list in his article. Perhaps it was a simple oversight as I suggested earlier. And if I'm not transgressing forum policy, I wo...

Re: 1 John 5:20 and the Granville Sharp Rule

Thank you to everyone for your input. Further research reveals that the exact number of GS constructions in the New Testament is not universally agreed upon. In his grammar, Wallace indicates this in a footnote* citing the inclusion of impersonal nouns as a factor. It may be the case that at the end...

1 John 5:20 and the Granville Sharp Rule

1 John 5:20 reads: οὗτός ἐστιν ὁ ἀληθινὸς θεὸς καὶ ζωὴ αἰώνιος Is this not a valid Granville Sharp construction? The reason I ask is that in an article "Sharp Redivivus? - A Reexamination of the Granville Sharp Rule”, Danial Wallace provides a complete list of every GS construction in the New Testam...

Re: ει μη and εαν μη

Thanks for the replies, they're much appreciated. I guess my next question would be, are all sentences containing either phrase always conditional? We usually translate them as introducing an exception where something is implicitly affirmed. For instance, Matthew 11:27: "οὐδεὶς ἐπιγινώσκει τὸν υἱὸν ...

ει μη and εαν μη

Can anyone tell me if there is a substantive difference between "ει μη" and "εαν μη." BDAG, for the most part, seems to treat them as semantic equivalents.

Thanks.
