Re: Mark Illustrated with Greek

This is probably so obvious that it's not worth noting, but I'll state it anyway. I don't think that what graphic illustration of any literary text does is different essentially from what translating it into another language or setting it to music or even reformulating it into a new literary text do...

Re: Question on famous quote

The following phrase is supposed to be the famous Socrates statement: The unexamined life is not worth living. ο δ ανεζεταστος βιος ου βιωτος ανθρωποι However, I am not sure how ανθρωποι fits into this. Is this the correct Classical Greek for this famous phrase? If so, can you give me a "literal" t...

Re: Compositions based on the verb ἀρέσκειν.

Interesting query. I find particularly interesting the judgment expressed in BDAG "a favored term in the reciprocity-conscious Mediterranean world, and frequently used in honorary documents to express interest in accommodating others by meeting their needs or carrying out important obligations." It ...

"Angels are dancing upon the earth". :lol: That sounds like some some 20th century NT Greek primers.
I think that happened at Wrigley Field in Chicago last night.

Re: Teaching the New Perspective on Greek Voice

Paul, I've been wanting to comment on your video; I've watched it twice, on different days. I really think you do a very nice job of showing what the subject-affected forms do that is distinct, and I think this is hard to do in a way that doesn't draw upon assumptions derived from one's native langu...

Re: Secondary Sequence with Subjunctive? Gal. 1:4

postscript: Reading the grammars on this I am struck by how opaque the classical philology metalanguage is. I have forgotten most of this metalanguage over the last 20 years and find these grammars hard to use. I spend most of my time reading texts and the metalanguage is just an obstacle that gets...

Re: Proper Articular infinitive: Attn Stephen Carlson

There's been a lot of fun had in this thread of the sort falling in the category of end-of-semester harvests of θαύματα produced by students in exams and term papers. Undoubtedly folly earns its exposure to ridicule; at the same time, however, it is not only risible but pathetic. Wow, Barry. I appre...

Re: Proper Articular infinitive: Attn Stephen Carlson

He recently gave us this as his rendering of the English "While my friend was eating, it began to rain: ὁ φίλος μοῦ ἐν τῷ φαγεῖν αὐτὸν, ἤρξατο βρεξαι I think that means this: My friend, while he was eating, began to rain. What is most appalling here is the self-assurance of the author. I'd understa...

Re: Eph.4:16 διὰ πάσης ἁφῆς τῆς ἐπιχορηγίας

Should we conjecture that the author may have aspired to emulate the style of social-science writing? I think I'd agree with you, Barry, that this is (a little) easier to read if we don't try to parse it, but, on the other hand, I think those who write with a deliberate intent to be understood writ...

Re: Eph.4:16 διὰ πάσης ἁφῆς τῆς ἐπιχορηγίας

I think the basic distinction of a beginners' question is one where the person asking has no idea what the answer might be. That is the case here. I am having trouble understanding the composition of the phrase διὰ πάσης ἁφῆς τῆς ἐπιχορηγίας in the following verse; ἐξ οὗ πᾶν τὸ σῶμα συναρμολογούμεν...
