Re: συνεχύθη in Acts 2.6

First, though, would you mind telling me how to cut and paste with the yellowish background like you guys are doing? Use the "quote" button up above in the editing window. Or when you first reply to a post, reply using the quote button in the upper right of the message. In the passage quoted as Gen...

Re: Peters' Thesis: The Greek Article

Now, I haven't read Peters so I want to be cautious, but what I saw in Wallace's review was a number of rather factual points (e.g., failure to interact with significant scholarship on the issue). To dismiss the review as "the traditional view" by writing a philosophy paper rather than specifically...

Re: Luther's translation of αἰών/αἰώνιος

This thread isn't heading in the direction of trying to understand anything about the Greek text. If the thread is to continue, it needs to move quickly in that direction. if not, I will lock it.

Re: συνεχύθη in Acts 2.6

So my conclusion is that the phrase συνεχύθη τὸ πλῆθος should be translated with the sense of the multitude of people of different tongues mixing together. Are you saying that when they each heard the believers speaking in their own language, that caused them to mix together? Why? That doesn't make...

That's still under copyright (in this English translation, at least), and that many pages is a bit beyond fair use, so I'm afraid I had to delete it.

Re: ευθυς in Mark

Where to start ... there's an extensive literature on this. You can probably find references from various commentaries on Mark, or writings from the Discourse Analysis world by people like Runge and Levinsohn, Randall Buth has written on this, so has Rod Decker ... For Randall's take, see Distinguis...

Re: Biblingo - communicative instruction at an affordable price

I'm guessing you mean that Biblingo uses aural/oral and visual methods to teach. I'm wondering, do they use Hebrew to tell a story, or give directions, or exchange information? If they are managing to really teach Greek and Hebrew online and via communication, I want to look into it more. [/size][/...

Re: Subject and Predicate in 1 Cor 11:3 παντὸς ἀνδρὸς ἡ κεφαλὴ [ὁ] Χριστός ἐστιν

The average NT student with seminary level Greek will not get it. Can you translate? What difference does this make in our understanding of the text, our exegesis of the text, and how we might explain it to a congregation or or Bible study? I'm not sure, but let me try. This thread seems to be disc...

Re: Subject and Predicate in 1 Cor 11:3 παντὸς ἀνδρὸς ἡ κεφαλὴ [ὁ] Χριστός ἐστιν

I have both Levinsohn's Discourse Analysis, which identifies left-dislocation, and a set of syntax trees. I need to do a little monkeying to make their reference systems compatible, but I can probably get to that in the next week and give this a shot. There's some danger that this is specific enoug...

Re: Subject and Predicate in 1 Cor 11:3 παντὸς ἀνδρὸς ἡ κεφαλὴ [ὁ] Χριστός ἐστιν

So the hypothesis to test is purely about word order, and under this hypothesis A ἐστιν B => A is the predicate, A B ἐστιν => B is the predicate, and any nominative finite form of ἐστιν will do? Almost. You ask a very good question. Under the framework that Mike and I have been working with for a n...
