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...

Re: Hebrews 2,10 - meaning of the Aorist participle

Participles don't specify sequentiality one way or the other. While aorists are used for event sequencing, but that's an indicative thing that isn't at play in the non-finite forms. I don't think "modal' is the right word for "in bringing." My sense is that particular translation of the participle i...

Re: In Hebrews 10:13 what is the effect of the subjunctive?

Per BDAG, ἔως takes an aorist subjunctive when the commencement of the event is contingent upon circumstances.

Re: In Romans 11:15 who is doing the refusing/accepting?

I think your sudden realization is correct, but I don't think it's a Greek issue. Thank you. My concern is mostly the "αὐτῶν", whether the combination with a noun results in "their refusing" or "their being refused". Which is the normal koine usage? I'm afraid that, here, there is no normal usage, ...

Re: 1 John 5:20 and the Granville Sharp Rule

IIRC, Wallace requires both noun to denote a person, but in 1 John 5:20 the second noun is ζωή "life." Since it's a predicating construction, ζωή would have a person has a referent. Is that how Wallace reasons? I can't remember. I haven't looked at the book in at least five years. It's how I would ...

Re: 1 John 5:20 and the Granville Sharp Rule

Based on the above citations, it seems to me that 1 John 5:20 is a valid GS construction. Am I overlooking something? IIRC, Wallace requires both noun to denote a person, but in 1 John 5:20 the second noun is ζωή "life." Since it's a predicating construction, ζωή would have a person has a referent.

Acts 13:48 ἀκούοντα δὲ τὰ ἔθνη ἔχαιρον καὶ ἐδόξαζον τὸν λόγον τοῦ θεοῦ, καὶ ἐπίστευσαν ὅσοι ἦσαν τεταγμένοι εἰς ζωὴν αἰώνιον· From what I have read using a perfect links the effect to the event described. Is that what you mean, Mike, when using the word "persistent' or are you referring to somethin...

Re: Imperatives and encouragement

And it's on my already-too-long reading list too. :oops: I read it when it came out and remember liking it. It's Sydney Lamb's neuro-cognitive framework, so it's a bit different compared to typical Berkley cognling His appendix about the relationship between linguistics and biblical studies at the ...

Re: In Acts 13:48 why the [effective] pluperfect?

A better word than "continuous" in the context of the meaning of the prefect would be "persistent."

'Continuous' can unintentionally imply a degree of dynamic action that doesn't exist for the perfect.
