Re: 1 Thessalonians 4:16: Voice of the archangel or voice of the trumpet?

"Voice" ( φωνή ) is a noun. It's gender doesn't change by context. It's always feminine. It would not switch to masculine to agree with "archangel" ( ἀρχάγγελος ) nor to feminine to agree with "trumpet" ( σάλπινξ ). "Voice of (an/the) archangel" is φωνὴ ἀρχαγγέλου . "Voice/sound of a trumpet" is φων...

Re: English-greek lexicon!?

Hi, for composition purposes, I would like a hard copy of an English to ancient Greek lexicon. Only one I have found: A 1910 publication by a Woodhouse. If you would be so kind, might you know of any others? Also given there are so many Greek to English lexicons, any speculation as to why there wou...

Re: ζωγρῶν in Luke 5:10

I just noticed something in Luke, and since I am sure that I am not the first to have noticed it , I would be interested in any comment someone might care to make . In my opinion, in Luke 5:10, zogron is a pun, meaning both taking and reviving, the phrase thus meaning either, You will take people a...

Re: χαίρετε

Hello! I've been active over on textkit for years, having started with koine at university in the UK and then moved on to Homer. Recently I've gone down the rabbit hole of living koine materials so I thought I'd head over here as well to keep up with the goss. Welcome to B-Greek. Have you seen the ...

Re: Does an accusative 'mean' this much?

Actually, with all due respect to Dr. Boice, I don't think so. There are other examples in Greek literature where διψάω takes the accusative, and context does not indicate anything like what Dr. Boice suggests. It's simply a synonymous alternative construction. LSJ specifically mentions that it app...
