Re: εὐθέως in Mat 25,15f

Mike, Can you explain what you mean by a given class? I cannot check a statement that I do not understand. Sorry. That was a typo. It should read "case." I'll change it above. A word with the semantic content of "immediately, right away, suddenly* would be inherently emphatic in any languauge, In s...

Re: εὐθέως in Mat 25,15f

In every usage in Matthew, εὐθέως precedes what it modifies. Indeed, but it's distribution across the clause looks like this when you go beyond Matthew. εὐθέως = % % ἡ λέπρα % ἀπῆλθεν ἀπʼ αὐτοῦ % At one point I went through the NT, Josephus, and Philo on this, but my notes are missing from my hard ...

Re: Examples of the Granville Sharp rule outside the NT

Thanks for the reference to that book. OK in the back of that book is an appendix listing 79 (and a few more that evidently weren't counted, on page 295?) instances in the Greek New Testament where these constructions occured, and are properly translated according to that rule. From his book itself...

Re: Examples of the Granville Sharp rule outside the NT

Dan Wallace has written a monograph on this rule. I recommend getting a hold of his book first and checking it. It really is the place to go for more than you can imagine about this construction.

Re: Books on Greek Idioms

Anybody here familiar with Stanley Porter's book on Greek idioms? Do you think it would be worth buying? I've heard of it but haven't seen it, and would like to have some idea of its value. Having been a student and teacher of modern languages (Spanish and French as teacher, German as student), I'd...
