Re: Aorist indicative with future temporal reference

Jonathan already said almost enough about John 11:8 (it's not aorist!), but let's say for argument's sake it's aorist... It's dangerous to interpret Porter without further context, but I wonder how he can translate it with English continuous tense ("are seeking") if aspect is important. How can aori...

were there instances in which aorist indicative constructions (i.e. in the New Testament), commonly translated as past tense, were reinterpreted with future temporal reference? Can you give examples (Koine, from OT/NT or elsewhere) where aorist indicative should be interpreted with future temporal ...

Notice the spam. It's not seen when I open the forum. But someone may have intruded into the system somehow, maybe there's some weakness is some forum software update?

At least in Europe, there is protection for critical editions, but only for 30 years.
This is a EU directive, not a law. It doesn't hold up in any court.
