SBL 2015 Biblical Lexicography session

Post by Stephen Carlson » May 8th, 2015, 10:19 pm

At the upcoming SBL, I'll be giving a paper called "The Polysemy of Πάλιν," where I look at the variety of meaning of this word in the New Testament, with special attention to its discourse uses.

By way of background, here's a paper on the adverb/particle in classical Greek by Antonio Revuelta Puigdollers: https://www.academia.edu/2018675/_2006_ ... E%B9%CE%BD

Very interesting, and thanks for posting the slides. I wish I could be at the meeting.

The examples in your §4 (Reframing πάλιν) seem to me to be open to alternative readings in which the πάλιν is preposed rather than postposed. I suppose you will discuss that possibility.

And John 18.33 in §5 is interesting as there are textual variants and one wonders what motivated them.

Thanks for taking a look at them.

Yes, I will (in the full paper if not in the limited time at the session). It is a use of πάλιν that has been noticed for late classical Greek (Revuelta) and Byzantine Greek (Stoltic), and which I propose is also at play in Koine. There are only a few tokens of this use among the least classical writers in the NT, however.

Quite. The text of 19:9 is much more stable. The text critic in me thinks harmonization, but it's worth considering further.
