Re: Luke 8:12 ἵνα μὴ

Thank you for your reply. Is it safe to say that ἵνα μὴ only negates a main verb? I cannot think of a time when I have heard/seen 'lest' where it did not link to a main verb. What I am not sure of is whether Greek works the same way. I am trying to determine what a good English equivalent for this ...

Re: Luke 8:12 ἵνα μὴ

οἱ δὲ παρὰ τὴν ὁδόν εἰσιν οἱ ἀκούσαντες, εἶτα ἔρχεται ὁ διάβολος καὶ αἴρει τὸν λόγον ἀπὸ τῆς καρδίας αὐτῶν, ἵνα μὴ πιστεύσαντες σωθῶσιν. My question is this: does the phrase ἵνα μὴ act as a single unit meaning something like 'lest' or must μὴ be read with πιστεύσαντες and/or σωθῶσιν? I'd say that ἵ...

Re: Mark Illustrated with Greek

This is probably so obvious that it's not worth noting, but I'll state it anyway. I don't think that what graphic illustration of any literary text does is different essentially from what translating it into another language or setting it to music or even reformulating it into a new literary text do...

Re: Question on famous quote

The following phrase is supposed to be the famous Socrates statement: The unexamined life is not worth living. ο δ ανεζεταστος βιος ου βιωτος ανθρωποι However, I am not sure how ανθρωποι fits into this. Is this the correct Classical Greek for this famous phrase? If so, can you give me a "liter...

Re: Compositions based on the verb ἀρέσκειν.

Interesting query. I find particularly interesting the judgment expressed in BDAG "a favored term in the reciprocity-conscious Mediterranean world, and frequently used in honorary documents to express interest in accommodating others by meeting their needs or carrying out important obligations....

I think that happened at Wrigley Field in Chicago last night.

Re: Teaching the New Perspective on Greek Voice

Paul, I've been wanting to comment on your video; I've watched it twice, on different days. I really think you do a very nice job of showing what the subject-affected forms do that is distinct, and I think this is hard to do in a way that doesn't draw upon assumptions derived from one's native langu...

Re: Secondary Sequence with Subjunctive? Gal. 1:4

postscript: Reading the grammars on this I am struck by how opaque the classical philology metalanguage is. I have forgotten most of this metalanguage over the last 20 years and find these grammars hard to use. I spend most of my time reading texts and the metalanguage is just an obstacle that gets...

Re: Proper Articular infinitive: Attn Stephen Carlson

There's been a lot of fun had in this thread of the sort falling in the category of end-of-semester harvests of θαύματα produced by students in exams and term papers. Undoubtedly folly earns its exposure to ridicule; at the same time, however, it is not only risible but pathetic. Wow, Barry. I appre...

Re: Proper Articular infinitive: Attn Stephen Carlson

He recently gave us this as his rendering of the English "While my friend was eating, it began to rain: ὁ φίλος μοῦ ἐν τῷ φαγεῖν αὐτὸν, ἤρξατο βρεξαι I think that means this: My friend, while he was eating, began to rain. What is most appalling here is the self-assurance of the author. I'd und...
