Re: Those roots

Hello guys, Does anyone know how or where to look up the roots of Greek words? As you read? One way to do this is to use a tool that does morphological analysis, such as the Scaife reader. https://scaife.perseus.org/ Alpheios lets you do this for any Greek text on a web page: http://alpheios.net/ A...

Re: The Genitive affect upon δικαιοσύνης

First off, here's the complete verse. Two verses, actually, I hate to split sentences up. νόμος δὲ παρεισῆλθεν ἵνα πλεονάσῃ τὸ παράπτωμα· οὗ δὲ ἐπλεόνασεν ἡ ἁμαρτία, ὑπερεπερίσσευσεν ἡ χάρις, ἵνα ὥσπερ ἐβασίλευσεν ἡ ἁμαρτία ἐν τῷ θανάτῳ, οὕτως καὶ ἡ χάρις βασιλεύσῃ διὰ δικαιοσύνης εἰς ζωὴν αἰώνιον δ...

Maybe @Jonathan Robie can work his syntax tree magic and query for some?
Probably when I get back from Labor Day ... I have been busy on other things this week.

Re: The imperfect of Romans 9:3

"Nor does he describe the wish as ever actually formed; Henry Alford https://biblehub.com/commentaries/alford/romans/9.htm This hypothetical wish is impossible in light of Paul's theological argument found in Rom 9-11. Focusing on details like the imperfect will not lead you to a viable answer. Rat...

Perspective of the wider language and the history of the language is needed to make good judgement calls.
I think that's why he is posting here. I like your responses.

It's an interesting question, isn't it?

Re: syntax of disjunctive phrase (Matt. 5:36)

I just ran across this nice example in Acts 1:2:

ἄχρι ἧς ἡμέρας ἐντειλάμενος τοῖς ἀποστόλοις διὰ πνεύματος ἁγίου οὓς ἐξελέξατο ἀνελήμφθη

The constituent τοῖς ἀποστόλοις οὓς ἐξελέξατο is interrupted by διὰ πνεύματος ἁγίου. That is surrounded by ἐντειλάμενος ... ἀνελήμφθη.

Re: Needed - An Open, Trustworthy, Trusted Greek Text

But suppose we go the other route and create a text. What would it take to get street cred so that it can be used in academic publications and translations? We can re-interpret my question "why wouldn't that work today" to mean "if it produced a work with credibility then, why wouldn't it work in s...

Re: Needed - An Open, Trustworthy, Trusted Greek Text

Perseus has an open text, based on Westcott-Hort, but I don't see any consideration of it in the OP. Is this worthwhile to the open source folks? http://ctsstage.dh.uni-leipzig.de/collections/urn:cts:greekLit:tlg0031/ancient-greek-new-testament Are there reasons to prefer WH to Nestle 1904?

Re: Similar work to Andrason and Locatell - Perfect Wave

Do you think that cognitive approaches will make the aspect debates we used to have obsolete? It feels like a lot of people I respect just aren't talking about these things that way anymore.
