Re: Two studies in the semantics of the verb in classical Gr

Peter, perhaps you could supply us with a summary and some comments after you've had a chance to work through it, how helpful it was to you, and so forth.

Re: Reading and Pronouncing Biblical Greek Authentically

Listening to your audio and looking at your pdfs of the history of the language, it almost appears as if you are wanting to suggest that there has been no change in the pronunciation of the language since the Classical period. If that's correct, I find that to be a rather outrageous claim without a...

Re: Matt 5:37

Matt. 5:37 ἔστω δὲ ὁ λόγος ὑμῶν ναὶ ναί, οὒ οὔ· τὸ δὲ περισσὸν τούτων ἐκ τοῦ πονηροῦ ἐστίν. Hi guys, What is it that leads some translations to translate the last part of this verse as "comes from the evil one", rather than "comes from evil"? Thanks It's the substantive use of τ...

Re: Staging a New Testament meal

And remember that at Passover everyone sat 'reclined' and had four cups of wine. It was a celebration of freedom and God's blessing, so the style of the meal was a rich banquet. But it wasn't a symposion. Right -- after posting that comment about benches and so forth, just today I was reading in Ma...

Re: Mark 10:36 Τί θέλετέ [με] ποιήσω ὑμῖν;

I just wanted to point out that although the construction is strange, there is still no doubt what the text means. Non-native speakers of our primary language often do terrible things to it, but just as often we understand what they mean (while weighing the pros and cons of correcting the speaker). ...

Re: Double Negatives (was John 14:30)

In mathematics a valid statement, for example "for all real x, x^2 >= 0", is either true or false (unless unprovable) . The negation of any statement always has opposite truth-value. In this example the statement is true and the negated (logically inverted) statement "not for all rea...

Re: Double Negatives (was John 14:30)

However, on this whole idea of double negatives contained within the same clause, everyone is agreed that it serves as emphasis or confirmation of the negative. For example, Smyth, #2762: The negative of one clause is often repeated in the same or in another clause either for emphasis or because of...
