Re: Unfamiliar subjects - Medicine and Grammar

Read out of a New Testament Greek grammar one day, read out of the New Testament the next day, or split up your time. Is this any good? Basics of Biblical Greek Grammar, by William D. Mounce P.S. I hope it is, because I just ordered a used copy of this book (and CD) for eighteen dollars and some ch...

Re: ἐς φῶς σὸν

Does καθίστημι indicate repetition in the 1st person future active indicative singular form? Back to your question. I would answer "no". (...) In this case you can't say that because the LSJ dictionary says "especially" the word means that "especially" thing. I'll continue a bit. BDAG/BAGD, Louw-Ni...

Re: ἐς φῶς σὸν

You can look in a dictionary to find the answer to the whether the word always means repetition or not (but you have seen clearly for yourself already, and Jonathan helping you has made it clear that it doesn't ). As to whether the grammar shows you that, you will have to understand more grammar, t...

Re: ἐς φῶς σὸν

1. What does the lexicon say about the meaning of the verb. I gave you that definition earlier in the thread, did it say anything about repetition? If you mean the link you gave me on the other thread, it did say something about repetition (but I'm not sure I understand what it said, and that's why...

Re: ἐς φῶς σὸν

Do you know which tenses New Testament Greek has? Present, perfect, imperfect, future, pluperfect, and 1rst and second aorist. Do you know how those tenses are used, and how they interact with the basic meaning of the verb? I got a basic idea from a book by Mounce. I probably still have that book i...

Re: ἐς φῶς σὸν

It's not just context, it's also the way the grammar works. "He built a house" does not involve repetition. "He built houses" involves repetition. Because the word "houses" is plural, and because that plural form of the word "house" is in the context, right? Same verb, same verb form. But the word ...

Re: ἐς φῶς σὸν

What is the sense of "marry" in the phrase, "He reconciled with his ex-wife and married her in a private ceremony sometime last month."? The answer is "joined"--he joined himself to his ex-wife last month. Of course it is that of "remarry", isn't it? If you want to be explicite, you could say "re-j...

Re: ἐς φῶς σὸν

καθιστάναι can be used in the sense of reinstate - not in LSJ explicitly, but it is in Woodhouse - as we can see from Mike's example. Would that "reinstate" sense of καθιστάναι be applicable in any of the NT examples of its use. Is it? Of the 21 instances, perhaps only 3 need to be considered (I ha...

Re: ἐς φῶς σὸν

Because of the context So the word καταστήσω doesn't imply repetition? I mean there's nothing in the word itself that suggests restoration or repair, without something in the context that implies it, am I right? I understand the basic meaning of καταστήσω to be "set," or "set down," so mustn't ther...
