Re: βλασφημείσθω

Since you're on this forum I'm guessing you have access to the internet? (1) Follow the link above to Perseus (2) Copy and paste the greek word in unicode (you can just do it from my post for instance) (3) Search in the greek word study tool (4) Hit the "show lexicon entry in... LSJ" link (5) There...

Re: βλασφημείσθω

When used of people, does the word itself imply that the evil spoken (of some person) is false?

Re: ἀληθής

The footnotes to the New American Translation say that the word can also mean "valid, or admissible," and that fits the context (but doesn't seem to be listed in either Lexicon.) And it doesn't really say, anywhere in the Old Testament, that the testimony of two men " is true ." (Is some kind of Gr...

Re: ἀληθής

P.S. If it's possible that some kind of figure of speech is being used in John 8:17, would someone please point out what kind of figure of speech is being used? I mean would it be a figure of omission (i.e. "true" for "accepted as true"), or a figure of association ("true" for "credible," or "believ...

Re: ἀληθής

Whether you're talking about the Hebrew text, the Greek LXX, or the English Version (and I mean any English Version), the statement that "the testimony of two men is true" doesn't appear anywhere in The Law of Moses (or the Old Testament.) So unless the meaning of ἀληθής is a little broader than you...

Re: ἀληθής

I assume you know that if the semantic range of ἀληθής isn't broad enough to include the idea of credibility, the statement made in John 8:17 is factually incorrect. Deut. 17:6 says that a man cannot be put to death on the testimony of less than two witnesses, and Deut. 19:15 says that a man shouldn...

Re: ἀληθής

Long definition: unconcealed, true, true in fact, worthy of credit, truthful.
So "worthy of credit" (i.e. "valid," "admissible") is within the semantic range of the word.

Thank you.

(And thanks for the links.)
