Matt 10:41-42 - εις ονομα

Post by David Lim » August 3rd, 2011, 11:02 am

[Matt 10] [41] ο δεχομενος προφητην εις ονομα προφητου μισθον προφητου ληψεται και ο δεχομενος δικαιον εις ονομα δικαιου μισθον δικαιου ληψεται [42] και ος εαν ποτιση ενα των μικρων τουτων ποτηριον ψυχρου μονον εις ονομα μαθητου αμην λεγω υμιν ου μη απολεση τον μισθον αυτου
I have another question about this preposition :) Does "εις ονομα" mean "for (for the reason of) [the] name" or is it equivalent to "εν ονοματι"?

My guess is that it is just a general reference. A pointer. The one r/cs the prophet with reference to his office as a prophet.

What is r/cs? Could you avoid using abbreviations unless you either define them or they are so common that we should all know them?

My guess is that r/cs = references.

But I could be wrong, as I occasionally am... :lol:

Hmm any opinions on this question? :) What I was trying to ask is: Does "ο δεχομενος προφητην εις ονομα προφητου" imply "the [one] who receives [a] prophet for [the reason that it is] [the] name of [a] prophet" or does it imply "the [one] who receives [a] prophet [who comes] in [the] name of [a] prophet"?

Hi, David,

The ABE Modern Greek for Mt. 10:41a is

ὅποιος δέχεται προφήτην, διότι εἶναι προφήτης...

I surmise it is almost equivalent ("inasmuch as it is") to what I guessed ("for [the reason that is")?
