Re: Oecumenius - Ad Thess 457.7ff

Peter, it appears that no one has responded. I will try . . . > What does Oecumenius mean by "οὐκ ἐπίπλαστον ἔχοντες τοῦτο τὸ ὄνομα". I am guessing that "this name" without further specifier refers to the name of "Christian." So I think this phrase means "not bearing this name fictitiously," i.e., "...

Re: Funk BIGHG

Sounds like you're all set. I was surprised when he told me Polebridge was planning a new edition because I thought that was what y'all were doing. In the normal course of things I never see the Polebridge folk--just kind of fell into their booth at SF.

Re: Funk BIGHG

I think you should check in with Polebridge Press unless you have an executed legal document in hand. At SBL I spoke with someone from Polebridge who said they were planning to reprint and knew nothing about your work. So I'm afraid there's some confusion or miscommunication somewhere.

Bruce (Richard's son) is also a distinguished NT scholar. Formerly at St Andrew's, he is now at Baylor.

Re: Use of vocative (pater) in the Nicene Creed

Aha--or should I say just "Ah"--a new twist on the old alpha privative! ;-)

2 Pet 2:1-2 punctuation

I am trying to imagine why the editors of NA27 would place a period after ἀρνούμενοι and a comma after ἀπώλειαν. It seems quite unnatural to me, and a quick check of some other print editions lying around here (UBS3, Kilpatrick, Merk, Scholefield) turns up no one else who did it that way. It seems a...

pronunciation: b-greek teachers vs. classicists

When teachers of biblical Greek become interested in teaching Greek the way a modern foreign language is taught, many of them opt for reconstructed imperial koine or modern pronunciation. What about teachers of beginning Greek in classics-oriented settings? I assume they're not going to be intereste...

another difficulty in Aetius

The twelfth proposition in the Syntagma of Aetius (in Epiphanius) runs as follows: Εἰ μὴ τὸ ἀγέννητον τὴν ὑπόστασιν τοῦ θεοῦ παρίστησιν, ἀλλ' ἐπινοίας ἐστὶν ἀνθρωπίνης τὸ ἀσύγκριτον ὄνομα, χάριν τοῖς ἐπινοήσασι γινώσκει ὁ θεὸς διὰ τὴν <τοῦ> ἀγεννήτου ἐπίνοιαν, τὴν ὑπεροχὴν τοῦ ὀνόματος οὐ φέρων ἐν ο...

Re: forms of hYFISTHMI

OK, thanks. This makes sense to me. My initial doubletake in this passage was caused by my sense that what was wanted where I saw ὑποστᾶσαν was a passive form (υποσταθεντα, I guess). Do we label these forms in terms of their semantic force or in terms of their morphology? Yes. ;) Or maybe No--I usua...
