Hebrews 10:29

Hebrews 10:29 πόσῳ δοκειτε χείρονος ἀξιωθήσεται τιμωρίας ὁ τὸν υἱὸν τοῦ θεοῦ καταπατήσας καὶ τὸ αῖμα τῆς διαθήκης κοινὸν ἡγησάμενος ἐν ᾡ ἡγιὰσθη και τὸ πνεῦμα τῆς χάριτος ἐνυβρίσασ. To what does ἐν ᾡ ἡγιὰσθη refer and why? Does it refer to Christ so that we would understand, "...wherewith Christ was...

Re: Phil 1:29 - το

I guess only Carl saw that this was actually Phil 1:29. Anyway, Paul could have said simply: ὅτι ὑμῖν ἐχαρίσθη οὐ μόνον πιστεύειν ἀλλὰ καὶ πάσχειν Yet he adds the three phrases. τὸ ὑπὲρ Χριστοῦ τὸ εἰς αὐτὸν τὸ ὑπὲρ αὐτοῦ So, why does Paul begin each phrase with τὸ? Is there a grammatical rule involv...

Phil 1:9 - το

Phil 1:9

ὸτι ὺμιν έχαρισθη το ὺπερ χριστου ού μονον το είς αύτον πιστευειν άλλα και το ὺπερ αύτον ασχειν

What is the purpose for το in the three instances in which it is used above - linked to χριστου in each case?

Would it make a difference if το had been omitted?

Re: John 1:9

Dean (and anyone else), So, grammatically, there is nothing wrong with the construction of the sentence? I don't know that I am the typical English reader, but I tend to read in a straight line so that I see modifiers immediately following that which they modify. However, in Greek, one has a certain...

John 1:9

John 1:9-10 9 Ήν το φως το άληθινον ὸ φωτιζει παντα άνθρωπον έρχομενον εις τον κοσμον 10 έν τῳ κοσμῳ ἠν ... Translators take this verse two different ways. They are: 1. That was the true light, which lighteth every man coming into the world; and 2. That was the true light which, coming into the worl...

Re: ὶνα πας ὸ πιστευων

So, where you have "the [one] who believes," this should be "the (one) believing" and "πας ο πιστευων" would then mean "every [one] believing" or "every believer." "every one believing" is not correct English, and is not easily understood correctly because as I said earlier "believing" implies some...

Re: ὶνα πας ὸ πιστευων

Does this mean that, grammatically proper use of πας ὸ requires that it be linked with a participle/noun? With a noun, it seems to mean "all the x" which is expected. I think the phrase should be understood as "πας { ο { πιστευων } }". "πας ο" is not one unit, but "πας" is a determiner that modifie...

ὶνα πας ὸ πιστευων

This particular phrase is found in John 3:15,16 and five other times in the NT. If I am reading my Greek resources correctly, πιστευων is a participle and interesting to me, singular. I know that this sounds like a translation issue, but I am really interested in the reason a writer in Greek would u...

Revelation 13:8

Revelation 13:8 says: και προσκυνησουσιν αὐτον παντες οἱ κατοικουντες ἐπι της γης οὑ οὐ γεγραπται το ὀνομα αὐτου ἐν τῳ βιβλιῳ της ζωης του ἀρνιου του ἐσφαγμενου ἀπο καταβαλης κοσμου.

Romans 5 - ἐκ and ἐν

In Romans 5:1 we read, ...δικαιωθεντες οὐν ἐκ πιστεως... In Romans 5:9, we read, ...δικαιωθεντες νυν ἐν τῳ αἱματι αὐτου... What distinction might a writer be making: 1. by using οὐν vs νυν 2. by using ἐκ vs ἐν irrespective of surrounding context (unless context matters)? 3. Is there any significance...
