Bill Mounce on χρόνος and "glosses"

Post by cwconrad » September 12th, 2011, 1:16 pm

In a blog entry at "Koinonia" today entitled, "How Can “Time” Mean “Delay”? - Rev 10:6" (, Bill Mounce comments on an unexpected usage of χρονος in Rev 10:6 and, more importantly, uses this note to call attention to the importance of reading full lexical entries rather than looking for "glosses."

ἀλλὰ χρόνῳ ζητέοντες ἐφευρίσκουσιν ἄμεινον. (Xenophanes, Fragment 16)
