Re: Acts 17:27 - infinitives

Sorry, was walking and typing on my phone (bad practice) so wasn’t paying as much attention to spelling as I should. Just one further query then, being slightly dense. Apposition explains or clarifies the word it is related to (I think), this would mean it would be saying “he made from one man every...

Re: Acts 17:27 - infinitives

Re: Acts 17:27 - infinitives

Thanks Randall, that is a really helpful explanation. A lot left for me to learn!
Out of interest, wouldn’t it be more natural to have a connective between the two infinitives? Stripping out the participle section it would end up as κατοικειν...ζειτειν which seems odd

Re: Acts 17:27 - infinitives

Thanks Stirling, the thing that has been throwing me is the distance between the two infinitives which made me struggle to see the ζειτειν as being in apposition. Happy to go with that if that is reasonable though - will just need to adjust my expectations

ἐποίησέν τε ἐξ ἑνὸς πᾶν ἔθνος ἀνθρώπων κατοικεῖν ἐπὶ παντὸς προσώπου τῆς γῆς, ὁρίσας προστεταγμένους καιροὺς καὶ τὰς ὁροθεσίας τῆς κατοικίας αὐτῶν 27 ζητεῖν τὸν θεόν, εἰ ἄρα γε ψηλαφήσειαν αὐτὸν καὶ εὕροιεν, καί γε οὐ μακρὰν ἀπὸ ἑνὸς ἑκάστου ἡμῶν ὑπάρχοντα.

Re: Books by gramatical category

Hi Jonathan, I have worked through BDF, Robertson, Wallace, Porter etc as well as some of the newer ones. I am comfortable enough with the uses they reference. I am just curious about it as I have a feeling that modern linguistics could provide more light on its intricacies. I was hoping to stumble ...

αἰωνιος

Hi all, I have been doing some reading which has lead me to looking at the meaning of the word αἰωνιος. I have acquired books by Heleen Keiser and Ilaria Ramelli / David Konstan which are quite in depth. I was hoping someone may have read these or know whether they are deemed to be good scholarship....

Re: Books by gramatical category

yikes, I thought that Ramelli's book on apokatastasis was expensive. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Christian-Doctrine-Apokatastasis-Christianae-Supplements/dp/900424509X/ref=sr_1_2?s=instant-video&ie=UTF8&qid=1519319854&sr=8-2&keywords=apokatastasis Unfortunately I never got around to studying Latin and ...

Re: Books by gramatical category

What I would really love to see is a book size treatise on the subjunctive mood. Couldn’t see anything on those sites, any ideas?
