Re: ἐξ ὅλης τῆς καρδίας σου ... ἐν ὅλῃ τῇ ψυχῇ σου

Why the variation of ἐξ and ἐν? Ἀγαπήσεις κύριον τὸν θεόν σου ἐξ ὅλης τῆς καρδίας σου καὶ ἐν ὅλῃ τῇ ψυχῇ σου καὶ ἐν ὅλῃ τῇ ἰσχύϊ σου καὶ ἐν ὅλῃ τῇ διανοίᾳ σου, καὶ τὸν πλησίον σου ὡς σεαυτόν. The above text is part of the Shema (Deut. 6:4-9.). In the NT, it is found in Mt 22:37 (ἐν, ἐν, ἐν), Mk 12:3...

Re: κάθου! κάθισον! καθίσατε!

Carl posted something about this somewhere. κάθου is something like, "Take your seat," "Grab a seat" while κάθισον is more like 'Sit down!" "Sit".

Re: Campbell: Advances in the Study of Greek

I've been reading through this book lately. Perhaps we should have a subforum on this book so we can create nested threads. My comments are as follows: On the middle voice. I really wish that Campbell had listed the following books: (1) Susan Kemmer: The Middle Voice Amsterdam; Philadelphia: John Be...

Re: Help me teach this class

Jonathan,

Give us a class recap. How did it go? Where did you have to change your plan if you did change it. What took more time than you thought, what less time? What feedback did you get from your students?

Re: Help me teach this class

βλέπω εἰς τὰ πρός. I've been trying to find instances of εἰς τὰ πρός and cannot find them. Perhaps in the meaning of 'the stuff with me' , but not opposite εἰς τὰ ὀπίσω. Perhaps the word πόρρω (cf. LSJ πόρρω, -ωθεν, -ωτέρω, v. πρόσω, πρόσωθεν, etc.) would be a better word fit. So βλέπω εἰς τὰ πόρρω...

Re: Help me teach this class

Do we really know what this word (αποτασσω) entails? Jonathan wrote: Would waving good-bye be reasonable for ἀποτάξασθαι? ἀποτάσσω. (waving hand good-bye, then turning around to leave) ἀποτάσσετε! (picking a victim) οὐκ ἐπιτρέπω σοι ἀποτάσσεις! Make sure to use the middle for this word in a departin...

Re: Use of the interrogative pronoun

Jonathan,

That list of questions from the NT is very helpful, can we get a textfile or database file of those citations?
