Re: Hebrews 2:15

I have long thought that Hebrews 2:15 should be translated "to fear of death" instead of "through fear of death", to better coincide with Romans 8:15 ("slavery leading to fear again"). I am not a Greek scholar, and I was wondering if the Greek in this verse (Hebrews 2:...

Re: Question About Accents: Syntactical Implications of εἰμι verses εἰμί

If the verb is accented in John 8:58, why isn’t it ἐγὼ εἴμι? Is this treated somewhere? Similar to οὐκ + ἐστίν → οὐκ ἔστιν ? I'm not sure how this instance stands out, but there are also unexpected accentuation instances that I've come across of other enclitic usage, although they don't spring to m...

Re: Question About Accents: Syntactical Implications of εἰμι verses εἰμί

John 8:28: the stress is on the pronoun: *I* am. John 8:58: the stress is on the verb: I *am*. I'm not sure what semantic difference that would make. Do you read 8:28 ( ἐγώ εἰμι ) as placing stress on the subject ("I am he, rather than someone else being he") whereas 8:58 ( ἐγὼ εἰμί ) is ...

Re: Question About Accents: Syntactical Implications of εἰμι verses εἰμί

It's clear that original manuscripts wouldn't have had such accents and that they would have been added later, but I don't know of any such distinction. I'd check non-biblical sources for comparison.

Re: Need clarification on Galatians 6:3

So, this is what I am understanding from you and Daniel...(I will break it down, I will put in bold my choice in considering grammar) εἰ - if γὰρ - because , for δοκεῖ - thinks, imagines, considers, appear, is of the opinion τις - someone εἶναί - "to be" verb in the present infinitive &qu...

Re: Dispute about σήμερον in the syntax of Luke 23:43

You've generated a really interesting discussion, @Brian Gould, and managed to avoid pushing it over the line where discussions cause trouble. Great job!

Just throwing my hat in with reading it as σήμερον μετ᾿ ἐμοῦ ἔσῃ while appreciating the ambiguity.

Re: Superscript/subscript BBCode

S Walch By the way, thank you for using the [​greek] code in your posts. It elevates the look of the text. ἐκεκελεύκη looks much better than ἐκεκελεύκη! Then again, the forum does handle Unicode Greek much better than it used to. I think the font that it uses by default has been updated to include ...

Re: Superscript/subscript BBCode

More a request than a question: would it be possible to have the ability to do superscript/subscript via BBCode in posts? I've checked to see whether this was already implemented on the board, but unless there's a different [​sup]Text[/​sup] / [​sub]Text[/​sub] I'm missing somewhere, I would like t...

Re: Errors in Mounce's Basics of Biblical Greek

It is amazing to see such exegetical nonsense in a book teaching basic Biblical Greek grammar. There are the following three errors in the passage quoted above. I remember when I was younger also thinking that ἐγώ εἰμι was the name of God in that passage from Exodus. I think I got it from this Exeg...
