Re: 1 Cor 9:5

Alan: I don't think this sentence in itself implies either that Paul is married or that he's unmarried. If all we had was this sentence as a papyrus fragment, we could read it either to the effect that "I'm not married because I choose to be unmarried, not because I don't have the right to marry" or...

Re: 1 Tim 2:12 - should both infinitives apply to ANHR?

Regardless of the meaning of αὐθεντεῖν, what about Nyland's take on the syntax? Is it really possible to understand αὐθεντεῖν as the content of the activity of διδάσκειν in this context? I find her notes unconvincing and am wondering what other, more-experienced readers think of the viability specif...

Re: Romans 5:14

Romans 5:14

αλλ εβασιλευσεν ο θανατος απο αδαμ μεχρι μωσεως και επι τους μη αμαρτησαντας επι τω ομοιωματι της παραβασεως αδαμ ος εστιν τυπος του μελλοντος

Must the antecedent of ος be αδαμ or can it be μωσεως?

Re: Placement of adverb

In prepositional clauses the head noun is often anarthous because the preposition already implies some specific entity, so it is common to see " preposition + noun + article + genitive noun ". How exactly does a preposition imply some specific entity? Can you cite some NT examples of the chain Pr+N...

Re: Prepositions and Personal Pronouns

Are there any examples of a periphrastic present in the NT? I can't think of any.

Re: How to translate "My commandment is righteous." to Greek

Sounds like an old Machen made-up sentence I recall from my long-ago youth.

Re: Gal 2:19 Χριστῷ συνεσταύρωμαι

Since they are talking about the same thing/event, we know that συνεσταύρωμαι is used in passive sense.
Not to venture too much into theology here, but you're assuming way more than what's in evidence in this assertion.
