Re: The Weekend Papyrus 6-4-2021

Hi Barry, I'm so far going with ἔχων should be ἔχον as far as agreement errors go. But I'm puzzling over how ὥστε is functioning here. I am possibly missing it's common 'so that' use but here it just seems to be redundant to the dative sense conveyed by Διονυσἰῳ. LSJ notes a usage like this, if I'm...

Re: Don't Do Word Studies

As far as I can, see the title of the video reads, "Bible Study: How Greek word studies can lead you astray." If it says what you say it is, then time to get a new pair of glasses. :) Such comments are unnecessary, and please avoid them. I originally found the video from someone's posting...

Re: Don't Do Word Studies

I listened to the video linked to in its entirety and find the title of this thread to be a misrepresention of what the speaker on the video said. What he actually said is So I'm not saying, "Don't do word studies." What I am trying to say is "Be very careful when doing word studies ...

The Weekend Papyrus 6-4-2021

P.Oxy 3.529 This letter lacks the name of the sender. It's otherwise intact. See if you can spot the agreement error. Otherwise, there is some familiar NT vocabulary, and the ending should remind you of similar language in the NT. 1 πρὸ μὲν [πάντων εὔχομαί σε 2 ὑγιαίνειν. κόμ[ισ]αι διὰ Κ[έ]ρ- 3 δωνο...

Don't Do Word Studies

Well, maybe go ahead, but with some qualifications. Here is an excellent video which explores the pitfalls of word studies.

Yes, great finds. The text for download looks quite good. I have 40,000 other things going at the moment, but I do plan to have a good look at it.

Re: The Weekend Papyrus 5-28-2021

I've run over it quickly now and will look more on the thankfully, given the length, long w/e. But a quick question. Do you Barry, or anyone else know of a decent treatment of epistolary greetings and farewells that treats common letters as well as higher register material ? I have a study of Paul'...

The Weekend Papyrus 5-28-2021

P.Oxy 3.528. A bit longer than some of the other ones we've looked at, a letter from Serenus to his sister (and likely wife) Isadora. There are a lot of spelling variations, some of which are marked in the notes below. Note that more than once υ is substituted for οι. Yes, and the Greek is certainly...

Re: the "world" (κόσμος) in John 12:19

Or is this generally understood as hyperbole on the part of the Pharisees? I would say hyperbole, without a doubt. They simply mean that now even larger numbers of people are are interested in Jesus than before. I don't think the comment is necessarily restricted to the literal crowd present, but i...
