Let the Greek speak for Greek, Latin will not find such a defender.

Re: The Peculiar Compound Non-postpositive Hapax μενοῦν in Luke 11:28

Luke 11:28 αὐτὸς δὲ εἶπεν Μενοῦν μακάριοι οἱ ἀκούοντες τὸν λόγον τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ φυλάσσοντες. *** I found 38 lexemes (like ὦστε, ὀτάν, μενοῦνγε or οὐδέ) that are compounds of uninflected lexemes, with 1489 occurrences in the GNT. μενοῦν is the only one that occurs both compounded and uncompounded, and...

Re: Why not start with modern Greek?

But if you're going to start with another language before ancient Greek, why not Latin? It is inflected like Greek but the vocabulary is more familiar. In a sense, it is the perfect stepping stool to Greek. Latin is a dead language. Greek is not. Koine Greek is a dead dialect. That is an important ...

Re: John 1:18 and Exodus 3:14 LXX

Neoplatonism is usually ascribed to the third-century Plotinus, far too late for the composition of the New Testament.

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 Gr...

John 17:26 καὶ ἐγνώρισα αὐτοῖς τὸ ὄνομά σου καὶ γνωρίσω ἵνα ἡ ἀγάπη ἣν ἠγάπησάς με ἐν αὐτοῖς ᾖ κἀγὼ ἐν αὐτοῖς Does this construction (and the context) indicate that Christ is asking to be in the disciples? Among them? Or does it leave open a less personal involvement, "my character might be in them...

John 17:26 καὶ ἐγνώρισα αὐτοῖς τὸ ὄνομά σου καὶ γνωρίσω ἵνα ἡ ἀγάπη ἣν ἠγάπησάς με ἐν αὐτοῖς ᾖ κἀγὼ ἐν αὐτοῖς It seems to me that the juxtaposition indicates personal involvement as opposed to the character in the previous clause (ἵνα ἡ ἀγάπη ἣν ἠγάπησάς με ἐν αὐτοῖς) but I'm wondering if the const...

Re: Help with French commentary, please (yes, it's relevant to Greek

DeepL http://www.deepl.com/ is your friend: According to the commentators, the apostle would target misconduct (but would it not be self-evident that it should be avoided?), or he would prohibit remarriage after widowhood, or he would attack the fact of repudiating his wife to marry another (cf.
