Re: In 1 Corinthians 12:3, why is κύριος Ἰησοῦς usually rendered "Jesus is Lord"?

"It indicates a quality/characteristic of the subject not the identity"? These are difficult words. How would you define "quality", "characteristc" and "identity" so that it's unambiguous to everyone what they mean in this context? Moreover, what does it have to do with the article? And if we say "...

Re: In 1 Corinthians 12:3, why is κύριος Ἰησοῦς usually rendered "Jesus is Lord"?

That appears to have some overlap but is, I think, distinct 1Cor 12:3: Ἰησοῦς is discourse old, we already know who Jesus is, so it's the topic. We say (or an imaginary person says) something about Jesus. ἀνάθεμα and κύριος tell what Jesus is (in someone's opinion), they are both statements about J...

Compare also with the famous καὶ θεὸς ἦν ὁ λόγος in John 1:1.

Re: In 1 Corinthians 12:3, why is κύριος Ἰησοῦς usually rendered "Jesus is Lord"?

Could you be more specific? I don't see anything unusual about the word order. Well, "choice implies meaning" and all that... why it's κύριος Ἰησοῦς and not Ἰησοῦς κύριος? I would say Ἰησοῦς is topic, κύριος is focus which is fronted for "emphasis". (Compare with ἀνάθεμα Ἰησοῦς.) In English it woul...

Re: φανεροω in Eph 5:13

If φανερούμενον is nominative passive, then it seems that "whatever BECOMES visible is light" would be unavoidably correct. If it is nominative middle (deponent), then perhaps "whatever MAKES visible is light" could be correct. I'm not 100% I understood you correctly. But I believe what you think i...

The term "grammar-translation method"

The term "grammar-translation method" has been used often in this forum. I think it has even been thought that we have invented it here. But I'm just doing some random reading and found this article from EAGLL: https://www.academia.edu/40811004/ENCYCLOPEDIA_OF_ANCIENT_GREEK_LANGUAGE_AND_LINGUISTICS_...

Re: Siebenthal - Ancient Greek Grammar

I just ordered this from amazon.de. It was sold out from .com and .co.uk, and only 3 left in .de - seems to be popular, or they just had a small amount initially. Maybe there will be demand for a cheaper paperback for NT students?

At the same time I ordered The CGCG.

It's nice to have a Christmas :)

As a side note, you'll get more information about the Koine ("definitive") article in https://www.sil.org/system/files/reapdata/17/80/79/17807987582008905937674262856095982918/50670_Hoyle_ScenariosDiscourseTranslation.pdf, p. 141 ff.
