Re: Verb catalog - lexical aspect

I've not had time to contribute over the last week or so but have been listening as time has permitted. The following notes are those of an interested layman. Jonathan asked, "Is there a list of adverbs that you would suggest? Or do we have to develop these as well?" Fanning's quoting Verkuyl is rel...

Re: 01: The Semantic Value of the Tense Stems

First, Mike, thanks for your response, it's appreciated. Mike quoted my saying, I'll also be interested in R's treatment of those aorist participles that clearly do not denote an action antecedent to that of the main verb. and asked, Why would that be a problem? Completedness does not necessarily ne...

Re: 01: The Semantic Value of the Tense Stems

I'd like to join the conversation, though a little late. As this is my first post to this dicussion (other than regarding preliminary matters), I'll mention first what I have said in another thread some time ago, that my Greek education was through a classics department; I did some linguistics but w...

Re: Subject of γράφειν in 1 Thess 4:9?

Thanks for your response, Stephen; I'm glad the references were of some use. Tony Pope referred to Lünemann (who on p. 104 of his Critical and exegetical handbook to the Epistles to the Thessalonians (1880) labels ἔχετε here as "meaningless" and reads the variant ἔχομεν instead; see http://archive.o...

Re: Subject of γράφειν in 1 Thess 4:9?

The Critical Text for 1 Thess 4:9 reads: 1 Thess 4:9 wrote: Περὶ δὲ τῆς φιλαδελφίας οὐ χρείαν ἔχετε γράφειν ὑμῖν, αὐτοὶ γὰρ ὑμεῖς θεοδίδακτοί ἐστε εἰς τὸ ἀγαπᾶν ἀλλήλους, Normally the unexpressed subject of an infinitive is that of its controlling finite verb, but that does just not make sense in t...

Re: Rijksbaron and the Greek New Testament

Your concern is that people may feel left in the dust? We're still on the first section, moving on to the second some time in the next week maybe. I assume people can get Rijksbaron in a week or so? These are very short sections. Thanks for the responses to my different points. As to the last, yes,...

Re: Rijksbaron and the Greek New Testament

I've been snowed under by work commitments over the last few days, and I see that the discussion of R has already begun, but I wonder if I might revive this earlier thread for a moment. Last week I was reading C M J Sicking's 'The Distribution of Aorist and Present Tense Stem Forms in Greek...' (Glo...

Re: Best passages to read from Philo

I'm looking to read some of Philo. His Greek is much more difficult than most authors. Are there some passages which are considered 'classic Philo' and relevant to the NT? Hi Louis, What follows may well be already known to you. Just a couple of weeks ago I was asking myself the very question that ...

Re: Gregory of Nazianzius, 3rd Theological Oration

Mike Baber referred first to a quote from Gregory of Nazianzius, 3rd Theological Oration, καὶ τοῦτό ἐστιν ἡμῖν ὁ Πατήρ͵ καὶ ὁ Υἱός͵ καὶ τὸ ἅγιον Πνεῦμα· ὁ μὲν γεννήτωρ καὶ προβολεύς͵ λέγω δὲ ἀπαθῶς καὶ ἀχρόνως καὶ ἀσωμάτως· τῶν δέ͵ τὸ μὲν γέννημα͵ τὸ δὲ πρόβλημα and then to a translation from Schaff...

οὐκέτι οὐ μή in Mark 14:25

Under a different thread, Also, can anyone explain "ουκετι ου μη" in Mark 14:25? I searched in Smyth and online but found nothing. Probably it is because I do not know where to look. The NT text referred to is ἀμὴν λέγω ὑμῖν ὅτι οὐκέτι οὐ μὴ πίω ἐκ τοῦ γενήματος τῆς ἀμπέλου ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ἐκείνης ὅτ...
