Analysis of the Expression μετὰ δόξης ἐξ οὐρανῶν μετὰ τῆς ἀγγελικῆς αὐτοῦ στρατιᾶς παραγενήσεσθαι κεκήρυκται

Justin Martyr, First Apology, extract from chapter 52: “Ἐπειδὴ τοίνυν τὰ γενόμενα ἤδη πάντα ἀποδείκνυμεν πρὶν ἢ γενέσθαι προκεκηρύχθαι διὰ τῶν προφητῶν, ἀνάγκη καὶ περὶ τῶν ὁμοίως προφητευθέντων, μελλόντων δὲ γίνεσθαι, πίστιν ἔχειν ὡς πάντως γενησομένων. ὃν γὰρ τρόπον τὰ ἤδη γενόμενα προκεκηρυγμένα ...

Re: The Meaning of the Phrase ἐπ᾽ ἐσχάτου τῶν ἡμερῶν τούτων at Heb 1:2

Thank you for sharing your thoughts on the passage in question. It is clear that the last days were viewed as already in progress in the first century, in agreement with what is stated at Ac 2:16, 17; Jude 16-18. So different translations of Heb 1:2 can have essentially the same meaning. The phrase ...

Re: The Meaning of the Phrase ἐπ᾽ ἐσχάτου τῶν ἡμερῶν τούτων at Heb 1:2

Since different explanations are given in the commentaries, which of the two proposed meanings would be correct?

Re: The Meaning of the Phrase ἐπ᾽ ἐσχάτου τῶν ἡμερῶν τούτων at Heb 1:2

Thank you for the quotation. Contrast what is stated in some other commentaries: “In these last times (ἐπʼ ἐσχάτου τῶν ἡμερῶν τούτων). Lit. at the last of these days. The exact phrase only here; but comp. 1 Pet. 5:20 and Jude 18. LXX, ἐπʼ ἐσχάτου τῶπ ἡμερῶν at the last of the days, Num. 24:14; Deut....

The Meaning of the Phrase ἐπ᾽ ἐσχάτου τῶν ἡμερῶν τούτων at Heb 1:2

Heb 1:1, 2: “Πολυμερῶς καὶ πολυτρόπως πάλαι ὁ θεὸς λαλήσας τοῖς πατράσιν ἐν τοῖς προφήταις ἐπ᾽ ἐσχάτου τῶν ἡμερῶν τούτων ἐλάλησεν ἡμῖν ἐν υἱῷ, ὃν ἔθηκεν κληρονόμον πάντων, δι᾽ οὗ καὶ ἐποίησεν τοὺς αἰῶνας·” A lot of Bible translations render the Greek phrase ἐπ᾽ ἐσχάτου τῶν ἡμερῶν τούτων with such ph...

Re: Translation of the Phrase “οὕτω τοίνυν, ὡς εἴρηται”

If the words “οὕτω τοίνυν, ὡς εἴρηται” are omitted from the Greek text, will the following translation be correct? “He says that the destruction of the wicked will take place like it did for those who lived at the time of the flood, since the message of the gospel had been driven out due to their ap...

Translation of the Phrase “οὕτω τοίνυν, ὡς εἴρηται”

Commentary on the Gospel of Luke attributed to Eusebius, extract from section “And just as happened in the days of Noah” (Lu 17:26): “Οὕτω τοίνυν, ὡς εἴρηται, ἐκβληθέντος διὰ τὴν ἀποστασίαν τοῦ λόγου τοῦ εὐαγγελικοῦ, κατὰ τὴν ὁμοίωσιν τῶν ἐπὶ τοῦ κατακλυσμοῦ συμβεβηκότων, ὁ κατὰ τῶν ἀσεβῶν ὄλεθρος ἐ...

Re: Meaning and Translation of the Word ὑπάρχειν

Thank you for the explanation. I had thought that the phrase καιρὸν τῆς συντελείας ὑπάρχειν may correspond word-for-word to the English phrase “time of the end of the age.” But the word “age” apparently does not appear in the original text but has been added by the English translator. This is how th...
