Re: Does κατάλαλος have forensic associations?

Note that the in James 4:11, it's the verb and not the ajdective. Looking it over, I doubt seriously that it was ever legal t.t. That doesn't mean it can't be used in a legal context, but it appears to me to be a very general term.

1 Sam 15:11

Παρακέκλημαι ὅτι ἐβασίλευσα τὸν Σαοὺλ εἰς βασιλέα...

Any of our LXX mavens want to comment on the use of παρακαλέω to render נחם? It seems like such an unusual choice, and only attested in this sense in the LXX.

Re: Mk. 6.14

For substantive participles, the "tense" is less important than the action characterized by using the participle. A present participle will suggest that the action is contemporaneous to the action of the main verb, an aorist that the action precedes that of the main verb.

Re: Why not start with modern Greek?

I think if you're reasonably good at learning languages, learning modern Greek can only help, though not all the time spent transfers over. (Not all people are good at languages, however.) But if you're going to start with another language before ancient Greek, why not Latin? It is inflected like G...

Re: Why not start with modern Greek?

Gentlemen, I'm glad your experience is treating you well. Having known a number of native Greek speakers who showed up in various classics courses, I will say that those who had actually studied ancient Greek did very well. Those who didn't struggled. I don't know if she remembers it, but I had a go...

Re: In John 17:26 what does "ᾖ κἀγὼ ἐν αὐτοῖς" mean?

I don't see how the Greek can answer your prior question. As the for the latter, the NIV translators apparently see ἐγώ as sufficiently emphatic in the context to justify the "myself" rendering. Other translations do not do so, e.g., ESV, NAS. I think it is sufficiently emphatic from context without...

Re: Jonly Joihin - Thesis on δε

From the thesis, page 70 (pdf 82): From the survey of Classical and Koine Greek grammars and lexica, there are two opposing views of δέ due to the different approaches: traditional (historicalcomparative) and discourse linguistic grammar. The traditional grammars and lexica of both Classical and Ko...

Re: Verbless clauses

What is οὗ εἵνεκεν pointing to? There's an almost pictorial effect to this passage, like The cup poised over me (ready) And it poured (action) To... (cascade) To... To... A quotation from Isaiah 61:1-2, so it mimics to a certain extent the structure of the Hebrew. οὗ εἵνεκεν translates here the Heb...
