Re: συζωοποιέω; Ephesians 2:1-5; Colossians 2:13

Stephen! Thanks for you reply! I guess I must have somehow misunderstood Ehrman's exact argument. But as you say this is not the best forum for discussing authorship.

Thanks for your observations on the composition of συζωοποιέω. It gives me more to chew on!

συζωοποιέω; Ephesians 2:1-5; Colossians 2:13

Bart Ehrman opines that 2 Timothy was not written by Paul and one reason he gives is that in Ephesians 2:1-5 Paul believes in a resurrection of sorts that is currently underway in his time and that the writer of 2 Timothy does not. I note that a key word in Paul's discussion in Ephesians 2:1-5 is συ...

John 3:3 ἄνωθεν

John 3:3 "...ἐὰν μή τις γεννηθῇ ἄνωθεν, οὐ δύναται ἰδεῖν τὴν βασιλείαν τοῦ θεοῦ..." The following comment from Bart Ehrman has sparked my interest: "This conversation with Nicodemus is predicated on the circumstance that a certain Greek word has two meanings (a double entendre). Absent the double en...

Re: Hello!

Hello Bill! I like the point you make in your book about the identity of "we" and "you" in 2 Corinthians...I'm not as ready to accept your view about Romans though but maybe I'm missing the point you are making. Your assertions about there being no such category as a dative of means or an objective ...

Stephen,

Or even συμμετοχος. I was looking over related words yesterday. Do you have an insight to share?

Re: 1Cor. 9:23 and συγκοινωνὸς

Carl! The fact that συγκοινωνος is a noun was staring me in face and I still stupidly mis-identified it! Thank you for pointing that out!

Re: 1Cor. 9:23 and συγκοινωνὸς

Συγκοινωνεω in BDAG under entry (2) has: "to give a portion of what one has to another, share τί τινι something with someone..." It points to Didache 4:8 for the above meaning. I found a translation of D 4:8 that seems to be more in line with the idea of "sharing in something with someone" rather th...

1Cor. 9:23 and συγκοινωνὸς

1 Cor. 9:23 πάντα δὲ ποιῶ διὰ τὸ εὐαγγέλιον, ἵνα συγκοινωνὸς αὐτοῦ γένωμαι. It would seem that even though the verb συγκοινωνεω upon which the participle συγκοινωνος is derived can have the two different meanings (partaking or sharer in the sense of giving), the participle does not. It would seem th...
