Χριστός ανέστη

Post by Jonathan Robie » April 5th, 2015, 4:16 pm

An Easter greeting (a week early for the Orthodox)

Χριστός ανέστη!
Χριστός ανέστη εκ νεκρών,
θανάτω θάνατον πατήσας,
και τοις εν τοις μνήμασι,
ζωὴν χαρισάμενος!

ἐξίσταντο δὲ πάντες καὶ διηποροῦντο, ἄλλος πρὸς ἄλλον λέγοντες, τί θέλει τοῦτο εἶναι;

Perhaps ἑστάκαμεν "(now) we are standing" or ἀνιστάμεθα "we are being raised" or ἀνεστάθημεν "we were raised"

Sorry ἑστήκαμεν. I don't use the prefix here because standing after being raised is different from the raising. I have probably strayed theologically and confused the terms ἐγείρω and ἀνίστημι.

ναί, ὀρθόν ἐστι τὸ ἀναστησόμεθα... ἤ δυνάμεθα λέγειν Ἐγερθησόμεθα.

ἐν τῇ γραφῇ οὐ δύναμαι τὸ ἀνασταθησ[όμεθα] εὑρεῖν.

I assumed that Paul meant to say, "He has risen; indeed we (too) shall rise" -- but the form "ἀναστηθάμεθα" seemed a bit, shall we say, "ἰχθυόεσσα"?

The forms for ἀνίστασθαι in the sense "rise up" or "rise from the dead" are: pres: ἀνίστασθαι; fut: ἀναστήσεσθαι; aor. ἀναστῆναι/ἀνασταθῆναι; pf. ἀνεστηκέναι -- the form ἀνασταθήσεσθαι is not attested. The form for "we shall rise" is ἀναστησόμεθα.

The forms for ἐγείρεσθαι in he sense "rise up" or "rise from the dead" are: pres: ἐγείρεσθαι; fut: ἐγερθήσεσθαι; aor: ἐγερθῆναι; pf: ἐγρηγορέναι/ἐγηγέρσθαι. The form for "we shall rise/be raised" is ἐγερθησόμεθα.

ἅ ἅ. Good one, Carl.
Yes, I was "fishing" for the right form there and landed a μορφήν ἰχθυόεσσαν.



ἅ ἅ or ἇ ἇ, to express laughter, ha, ha,
ἰχθυόεις, εσσα, εν, (ἰχθύς) full of fish, fishy
