ἀμὴν, ἀδελφέ!
Accents, my friend! The pause brings us ἀμήν, since it is followed by a comma, and ἀδελφός takes its accent on the antepenult in the vocative singular (ἄδελφε). ♥
Sorry for the nerdiness.

Re: Looking for a study-partner

Greetings, Enak.

I moved your post to a different part of the forum (since it has nothing to do with forum projects). I hope you can find a study partner to work with.

Do you have a textbook that you want to work through?

Oh, I see. It's an attempt to twist the Greek language in order to smooth over an apparent contradiction within the Gospels. Gotcha.

Re: The expression: "ἐντεῦθεν καὶ ἐντεῦθεν"

How else would the questioner expect it to be understood? What possible agenda could be had regarding this verse? Sometimes I feel so naïve.

It would seem pretty obvious, I think. You've answered it perfectly well. :)

Re: Luke 6:27 εχθρους

What I know about Gothic can be engraved in large Gothic script on my thumbnail... :lol: But, in Greek, a military enemy is usually ὁ πολέμιος (not a NT word), a personal enemy ὁ ἐχθρός, the hostis/inimīcus distinction in Latin.

Re: Luke 6:27 εχθρους

"expertise"??? Well I'm trying to become one ... Good luck in your endeavors! The problem her is, that all other occurrences of ο εχθρος are rendered with the Gothic noun "fiand" (German "Feind", Dutch "vijand", English "enemy"), just her in Luke 6:27 the Gothic translator has chosen a participle c...

Re: Luke 6:27 εχθρους

I am so used to use this terminus as designation of the translator, that I forget, that not everybody knows what it means. Thanks for that, Jean. :) Do you read the Gothic language yourself? Is that your area of expertise? I'm not at all aware of that language. Would you then take οἱ ἐχθροὶ ὑμῶν to...

Re: Why is αρχή plural in Genesis 1:16?

Hi, Brandon. As a matter of housekeeping, please contact a moderator so that we can get your username to conform to the forum police . I'm not sure why it would read εἰς ἀρχάς instead of εἰς ἀρχήν . I had never really thought of it. I've asked in another group, too, to put out feelers for opinions. ...
