Why not the Tyndale House one? What's the license on that one? I haven't been able to discover one, but it is electronic.
Read their FAQ and practice some deduction :) https://static.crossway.org/excerpt/esv ... use-nb.pdf

Re: Needed - An Open, Trustworthy, Trusted Greek Text

On the other hand RP represents different school of TC. SBLGNT has some numbers about agreements/disagreements here: http://sblgnt.com/about/introduction/. For example, agreements/disagreements between SBL/RP: 969/5,959. And SBL/NIV: 6,312/616. What this means in practice is that it's more difficult...

Re: Needed - An Open, Trustworthy, Trusted Greek Text

Now when we have at least three modern scholarly critical texts - NA, SBLGNT and Tyndale House GNT - would it be reasonable to mechanically create a "Majority of Modern Critical Greek New Testaments", MMCGNT, selecting text by majority vote?

Re: Hendiadys?

These theological discussion have nothing to do with Greek language. We agree it's not hendiadys. Based on Greek one cannot argue for one interpretation or another. It requires cultural and historical knowledge. And commonsensical reading in context.

Re: Theos?

If this is true, what do you think are the consequences? If it's true that ο θεος (in singular form) is used for the one true god and θεος is preferred for other gods, it's only because the nature of the stories and other discourses. I think you just don't find so many places where LXX uses the sing...

Re: Understanding Randal Buth's example of the Perfect tense he presents to critique Campell

I don't have Campbell at hand nor have I read your (Randall's) article, but I can't help wondering if you misrepresent Campbell's argument. It's a common traditional view that the perfect has a complete action and present relevance, and the present relevance is a state. Some have argued that the per...

Re: Meaning of HUPARCHWN

This is called "root fallacy" or "etymological fallacy", namely that etymology of a word or the components of a compound word determine its meaning. Actually usage determines the meaning, and even then it's the contemporary usage. Group of people have common understanding about the word because they...

Re: Can Pronouns "Modify" Verbs?

I am having trouble locating why ἕκαστος is a nominative singular third person reference. I see the nom. case in parsing, but am unclear on where you're deriving the third person reference? Compare with English: "You do" (second person plural or singlular) "I do" (first person singular) "They do" (...

Re: How to Identify a Permissive/Causative Middle Voice Verb?

But I would submit that this exercise in semantics is beside point of the middle, which is in fact to deprofile the agent. Is it really "besides the point"? But you're right about its function in discourse. Another misused label, infamous in this forum, is "divine passive". Basically it's nothing b...
