Re: Athanasius Contra Gentes

τοῦτο δὲ καὶ ἀπὸ τῆς ἐν σώματι καθάπαξ ἐνεργείας αὐτῆς φανερώτερον ἄν τις ἴδοι. It is every difficult for me to see this as other than an adverbial use modifying the verbal action implied in ἐνεργείας. This would be the natural way to read it, but context may contraindicate this, as your translator ...

Re: Meaning of a Text in Josephus' Jewish Antiquities

Μy first reaction was "that's obvious," my second reaction after really reading the text was, "Oh, I see the confusion." However, κατασκευῆς I think refers to the physical completion of the city, and προθεσμίας to the dedication. Consider the sentence directly following (context often helps greatly....

Re: Philippians 3:19

I'm having trouble understanding the construction of ὧν τὸ τέλος ἀπώλεια in verse 19. How should the clause with the genitive relative pronoun be translated? I'm unclear on how that genitive is used. Also, is the antecedent πολλοὶ or ἐχθροὺς ? 18 πολλοὶ γὰρ περιπατοῦσιν οὓς πολλάκις ἔλεγον ὑμῖν, νῦ...

Re: 1 Peter 2:17

reading πάντες leaves one wondering "honor what or who?" πάντες is nominative (so subject), τιμήσατε verb in imperative, and τὴν ἀδελφότητα accusative (so direct object). => So, we would have : Let everyone honor the brotherwood Do you see from Jason's post why this won't work? The structure here i...

Re: 1 Peter 2:17

Normally we don't discuss translation, but the Greek. So, is there a place where I could ask translation questions ? Nevertheless, If we look at the GA 01 manuscript there is παντες instead of παντας , so it's nominative instead of accusative. So because of that, we could have : All of you : honour...

The Greek makes perfect sense, as rendered by the KJV or any standard...

Re: Galatians 4:12-14 Γίνεσθε ὡς ἐγώ

Paul gives another hint in Galatians 6:11 Ἴδετε πηλίκοις ὑμῖν γράμμασιν ἔγραψα τῇ ἐμῇ χειρί. When he writes in his own hand, he does it in really big letters. Perhaps because he had problems with his eyes? Due to the discovery of manuscripts which do this, the general consensus is that it was done ...
