Re: ISBL 2018, Helsinki

When I did not have a fever, I attended text-critical sessions. There was a great presentation about printed portions of the New Testament before Erasmus, mostly the Lord's Prayer and the Lukan canticles, but also a serialization of the first six chapters of John.

Re: Please recommend a Reader's GNT

I would love to know if anyone has documented, or knows where it is documented, what sort of textual decisions have been made in this version that are against the UBS. One of the downsides of the NIV Greek reader, is when there is a variant to UBS, I invariably wonder, 'huh?'' and have to go off an...

Re: Legitimate word forms?

LSJ is online at logeion, TLG, and Archimedes. I'll have to check my printed LSJM at home to see if it's in there; I hardly use it anymore.

None of the thousands of textσ with millions of words online at TLG has μετοξύ. It does not appear to be a form recognized by editors.

Re: Legitimate word forms?

LSJ actually has an entry for μετοξύ. Here it is:
μετοξύ,
A v. μεταξύ.

Re: Legitimate word forms?

I doubt your doubts, because multiple scribes wrote them and did not correct their “mistakes”, and in most cases, neither did any of the many subsequent hands which also did not bother to “correct” them. I'm concerned that this may be reading too much into scribes and later hands not correcting "mi...

Re: The Genitive affect upon δικαιοσύνης

Yeah, if you see a case form with a preposition, go with the preposition for the meaning. (Some of them use the case form to discriminate among their meanings.)

Re: The imperfect of Romans 9:3

I'm not sure what the question is. It is an unrealized wish and Greek uses the imperfect for that. English has a different idiom. As for a possible use of the subjunctive, we're not dealing with a dependent clause, where most subjunctives are found, but an independent clause marked with the connecti...
