Re: 1 Corinthians 13:13 νυνὶ δὲ μένει

Could you say more about "but if they convey something more like the Christian faith and the Christian hope? This might well be something I am missing, but I don't quite manage to finish the thought here. My thinking here is driven primarily by what I see is the flow of thought of the section. It s...

The Vatincanus Bible: Gospels

Check out Ben Kantor's recently released pseudo-facsimile of the gospels from Codex Vaticanus https://www.koinegreek.com/vaticanusbible . I received my copy a couple days ago and am very pleased with it. It is by far the nicest experience reading uncial manuscript text I have yet had. The text is a ...

Re: 1 Corinthians 13:13 νυνὶ δὲ μένει

"Now these three things remain (even when knowledge, prophecy, and that which is imperfect disappear)" versus "These three things remain now (in the current time, as things we can rely on in our imperfect knowledge and prophecy, while waiting for the time that we are face-to-face and know as fully ...

Re: lexicons and word meanings for a given period

As you know, Lexicon's are not meant for the study of one particular author or time period, unless they were assembled specifically for that purpose. There are two really helpful works made for Josephus, though they are not very accessible at all (if you are by a research library, they might have a ...

Good discussion of predicate nominals?

I was reading Apocalypse of Esdras and came across 4.36: καὶ οἱ νεκροὶ ἀναστήσονται ἄφθαρτοι Another example of this predicate nominal with a non-copulative verb that I have logged away is Acts 26.5: ὅτι κατὰ τὴν ἀκριβεστάτην αἵρεσιν τῆς ἡμετέρας θρησκείας ἔζησα Φαρισαῖος. They're not particularly c...

Re: 2 Cor 1:3 articulation within a Granville-Sharp construction

Or maybe it's because people who read tons of Greek outside of the NT don't really need a special rule to explain it. I understood it intuitively long before I was exposed to Sharp. As far as I can tell, the reason Granville-Sharp gets talked about in "NT" Greek discussions so much is because NT sc...

Re: In Philippians 2:10 what is the function of ἐν?

I don't know what exactly you mean by "attending circumstance." The main event is clearly "every knee will bow and tongue confess that..." You can think of the phrase "at the name of Jesus" as a sort of conceptual glue that holds things together in a clear and explicit way. 1. vv. 6-8: Jesus is humb...

Re: In Philippians 2:10 what is the function of ἐν?

Regarding the second part of your question: I skimmed through the cited paper and am having trouble understanding what relevance it has to this passage. The phrase ἐν τῷ ὀνόματι Ἰησοῦ is primarily serving to specify how the content of the ἵνα clause relates to the preceding context. The repetition o...
