Re: Hebrews 10:25 the implied object of παρακαλοῦντες

παρακαλοῦντες doesn't need anything supplied at all. Its a reciprocal middle.

Re: Tenses

I haven't read Rijksbaron, but I guess from the tables you posted that he laid out the usual explanation of the tenses ie. temporals in the indicative, state after a perfect, etc. Here's the thing about stativity after an action though, and one of the writers in Greek Verb Revisited mentioned this ...

Re: Tenses

Campbell in forcing an imperfective aspect on the perfect tense, translated this to "I am fighting the good fight, I am finishing the race, I am keeping the faith", but I don't think that's correct. Paul was saying he had done those tasks (in the sense of accomplishment), not that he's still doing ...

Re: Tenses

I've discovered that Rijksbaron is one of the editors of the very recently published Cambridge Grammar of Classical Greek . It's advertised as shedding light from modern linguistics on all aspects of classical Greek grammar ... I recommend reading some of it first before laying out the cash. My exp...

Re: Ephesians 5:32 — λέγω εἰς and καὶ εἰς

We have a similar construction in English: "I can speak to this issue," though it has a very narrow distribution. Josephus, Antiquities 5.209 has: καὶ οὕτως μὲν ἡ νίκη αὕτη περιέστη κατὰ τὰ ὑπὸ Δαβώρας εἰρημένα εἰς γυναῖκα And thus this victory stands according to what was spoken by Deborah about a ...

Re: Syntax in Josephus Antiquities

Here is an example where the verb is fronted in it's clause: εἰσὶν δὲ ἐξειλεγμένοι Περσῶν οἱ ἄριστοι δόξαντες ἐν ἡλικίᾳ τέτταρες... This is close to what we're looking for, but I'm not sure how the δὲ and participle would affect things. Here's an example using the demonstrative: ἔπειτά εἰσιν οὗτοι ...

Re: Syntax in Josephus Antiquities

The so-called "sentence accent" can also be for a Topicalization, Contextualization and thus non-Focal. So I find "sentence accent" unhelpful by itself. (See my comments immediately above.) Clitics are phonological and prosodic phenomenon, if you're going to account for them without talking about p...

Re: Syntax in Josephus Antiquities

Hyperbaton? Is this how you'd label what's going on in the attached image? (Not meaning to distract here... please be forgiving.) If not, do you know of a name for fronting the PN in such a way? οὗτοί εἰσιν υἱοὶ θεοῦ οὗτοι υἱοί εἰσιν θεοῦ εἴσιν οὗτοι υἱοὶ θεοῦ οὗτοι υἱοὶ θεοῦ εἰσίν Any pointers as ...

Re: Syntax in Josephus Antiquities

These patterns are in the NT as well, just less common. Quantifier-Article-PP-N is very normal. There isn't a name for this above. But this: Modifier [VERB] Noun Is called hyperbaton. It's a means of structuring in the information flow in a particular manner. It happens in the NT, but becomes more a...

Re: Πείθω in the perfect - Active form, passive sense?

I have noticed that in the NT, the instances of Πείθω in the perfect (24x out of 53) are some times passive in meaning ("having been persuaded"), but active in form. Some instances are Romans 2:19, "If you are persuaded (πέποιθάς) that you are a guide to the blind", and Philippians 1:25, "Having be...
