Is the article genitive article anaphoric at 2 Peter 1:11?

Post by Scott Lawson » September 3rd, 2018, 5:18 pm

I’m asking for a friend who posed this question to me:

Does the article του that is construed with κυριου at 2Peter 1:11 act anaphorically pointing back to του κυριου in verse 8?


2 Peter 1:8-11
8 ταῦτα γὰρ ὑμῖν ὑπάρχοντα καὶ πλεονάζοντα οὐκ ἀργοὺς οὐδὲ ἀκάρπους καθίστησιν εἰς τὴν τοῦ κυρίου ἡμῶν Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ ἐπίγνωσιν· 9 ᾧ γὰρ μὴ πάρεστιν ταῦτα, τυφλός ἐστιν μυωπάζων λήθην λαβὼν τοῦ καθαρισμοῦ τῶν πάλαι αὐτοῦ ἁμαρτιῶν. 10 διὸ μᾶλλον, ἀδελφοί, σπουδάσατε βεβαίαν ὑμῶν τὴν κλῆσιν καὶ ἐκλογὴν ποιεῖσθαι· ταῦτα γὰρ ποιοῦντες οὐ μὴ πταίσητέ ποτε. 11 οὕτως γὰρ πλουσίως ἐπιχορηγηθήσεται ὑμῖν ἡ εἴσοδος εἰς τὴν αἰώνιον βασιλείαν τοῦ κυρίου ἡμῶν καὶ σωτῆρος Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ.

Well, that have the same referent, so it that sense, yes. But usually we talk kabout anaphors in the context of a referring expression whose proper interpretation relies on that previous context. In both vs 8 and vs 11, that isn't the case since the fully stated phrase includes all the relevant information. In vs. 11, τοῦ κυρίου ἡμῶν καὶ σωτῆρος Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ doesn't has any such interpretive challenge that would requiring "resolving" the anaphoric reference.
