Translating Origen's harder section

I'm seeking some help in the more difficult section of an earlier post. I can't see how some words, genitives and accusatives fit together coherently. My atttempted translation is below, along with a couple of dictionary look-ups from TLG. Any enlightenment to get me out of the stuck areas would be ...

Re: Translating Origen

Thanks for the discussion and links. I had to smile at another error on the Scaife viewer link that Jonathan sent: ...περὶ αὐτοῦ λέγειν τοῦ Χρισποῦ·

Translating Origen

Hi, this is a relatively simple text, but could I ask comments on whether my translation is reasonable? Ἡ δὲ βασιλεία τῶν οὐρανῶν αὐτός ἐστιν ὁ Χριστὸς, προτρεπόμενος πάντας εἰς μετάνοιαν, καὶ ἕλκων εἰς ἑαυτὸν διὰ τῆς χάριτος. And the kingdom of heaven is Christ himself, exhorting all to repentance,...

Re: Βιαστή

Thanks for these helpful replies. I look up -τος This helped to explain very much. So I'm guessing the word can be middle or passive just as verb βιἀζεται. That really opened my eye to this form. btw I googled the form and wiktionary page below came up. I hope it is accurate. Seems to be and it refe...

Re: Βιαστή

Thanks for writing Stirling. I could not find this exact form in the Lampe that I consulted, but Stephanos did have it in the following entry: Theophilus Protosp. 3, 11, p. 843 Η μὲν γάρ ἐστιν αβιἀστος (αναπνοὴ), ή δὲ βιαστή. For on the one hand she/it is effortless? Powerless?, on the other forcefu...

Βιαστή

From the Sayings of the Desert Fathers comes an odd rephrasing of Matthew 11:12 Βιαστή γάρ ἐστιν ἡ βασιλεία τῶν οὐρἀνων, καὶ βιασταὶ ἁρπάζουσιν αὐτήν. The kingdom of the heavens is violent/forceful??? Doesn't make sense to me. I found a papyrus with Βιαστή as well: [16]καθὼ καὶ ουʼ[κ] ἐξέσται1669 ἡμ...

Clement of Alexandria Paedagogus

Hi, I'm trying to locate a reference for Clement of Alexandria with this numbering system: Clement of Alexandria, Paed. 3:7:39 I looked at various online texts but cannot be sure I have the correct sentence. The numbering doesn't seem clear to me. Is the first 3 only a reference to Paedagogus as the...

Re: Latin question for Greek word

This last post has reminded me that I regretfully never expressed my gratitude. Thanks Barry that was indeed a very thorough and helpful answer.

Latin question for Greek word

I've been looking at usage for αρπἀζω but have run into some Origen quotes seemingly available only in Latin, which I don't understand. I'm wondering if someone could help me translate these verses? I used google translate, but.... raptores sunt mali, sunt et boni; et boni quidem illi, de quibus dic...
