Re: John 4:34… ἵνα ποιῶ …καὶ τελειώσω

But the English and other translations of the verse translate ἵνα in a sense that does not denote purpose or result, but rather definition: “My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work.” (NIV) Hi Alan, English infinitive constructions readily take purpose meaning. Indeed, th...

Re: Intro D Brown - help re Root words

Roots are an unreliable source of information about the meaning of words. The only wany to determine the meaning of a word is its own use in context, not his roots or etymology.

Best spend your time studying word meaning elsewhere.

Re: Heb 1:3 & the SBLGNT text

According to Tischendorf, there is a variant: https://archive.org/stream/novumtestamentu02abbogoog#page/n811/mode/1up M 67 ** om αυτου No you just have to figure out what those refer to : ) James Logos' edition Tischendorf's prolegomena includes the equivalent Gregory-Aland # ;) M is 0121(a) and is...

Re: Did Paul read Zachariah 14:9 LXX as "all in all"? If so, how?

Does it need a background? I don't see Zech 14:9 getting you there. εἷς, καὶ τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ is quite different from ἕν πάντα ἐν πᾶνσιν. For one, Paul's describing something that has not happened yet that ought to happen (ἵνα), where ask Zechariah 14:9 is an already existing state describing God's un...

Re: Why is λόγος consistently translated as "word"?

When I hear "in the beginning was the Word" I'm thinking "Oooooom" (as in Eastern Meditation) or a word like "radiometry". When I think of "utterance" then I think that God speaks (and commands) through Christ, which is consistent with Hebrews 1:1-2, etc. But okay, thanks. If you're just talking ab...

Re: Why is λόγος consistently translated as "word"?

I'm not sure you've reflected sufficiently upon just how flexible the English 'word' can be. On the other hand, maybe you should look at some other translations. A number of them, are split nearly 50-50 on translating λόγος as 'word' or as something else. More traditional translations such as the KJ...

Re: John 1:18 μονογενὴς

Well, these things are decided on the basis of length, that's for sure. "Unique" isn't right. But 'only begotten' hasn't been meaningful English for quite some time. Seumas MacDonald did an excellent SBL paper last year, but I don't think it's available online update: found it: https://thepatrologis...

Re: Can a genitive be both objective and subjective?

No. Wallace wants it to be the case, but it's impossible unless you make it mean something it doesn't mean. The subjective/objective distinction is predicated on mapping transitive clause syntax onto a noun phrase The army destroyed the city. The army's destruction of the city. Something cannot be a...

Re: Mistranslation of Luke’s Genealogy?

You lists of data at the end would be more useful in a spreadsheet.

Also, just for clarification, how are you defining "emphatic" here?

Thanks.
