Re: οπως / ωστε

PhillipLebsack wrote: December 22nd, 2020, 11:06 pm How would you distinguish οπως and ωστε?
Generally, ὅπως is used for purpose clause (like ὡς and ἵνα) and ὥστε is used for result clauses.

Re: Gal. 1:15-20 σαρκὶ καὶ αἵματι... τὸν ἀδελφὸν

So, is it plausible to hear in Hebrews an echo of "flesh and blood" referring to a literal "brother of the Lord"? I'm not arguing that Hebrews was saying the same thing, only suggesting that like Paul, the author of Hebrews had the idea of "flesh and blood" meaning sha...

Re: Gal. 1:15-20 σαρκὶ καὶ αἵματι... τὸν ἀδελφὸν

Gregory, I have to wonder what is making you push this. It is without-a-doubt not the meaning of the expression. It just means "human" - a person that is alive in a body and is not some sort of phantom or ghost. What is your purpose in trying to bend the text to your will in this way? What...

Gregory Hartzler-Miller wrote: December 17th, 2020, 5:50 am Is it plausible that in Matthew (as in Galatians, according to my reading), "flesh and blood" has a connotation of biological family?
Absolutely not. It is certainly meaning "humanity." This expression does not have any connection to the English idiom.

Re: One Greek Grammar or Many for beginners Greek

I made the mistake with one Hebrew grammar. I persisted for a while because I'm like that but after a while I realized it was just a bad choice and I switched. Curious minds want to know... which Hebrew grammar failed to satisfy you? The First Hebrew Primer. Thx D If you watch the Good Place: "...

Re: Gal. 1:15-20 σαρκὶ καὶ αἵματι... τὸν ἀδελφὸν

Adding to Jason's remarks, we should also consider Cephas, who is "flesh and blood" in the human sense but in the relative sense, in the same context. And after the resurrection in the Gospel of Luke (24:39), we see the combination of "flesh and bone" (which is similar in meanin...

Re: Gal. 1:15-20 σαρκὶ καὶ αἵματι... τὸν ἀδελφὸν

Agreed. "Flesh and blood" just means "human." He didn't go to Jerusalem to consult any human to confirm the revelations that he was receiving. He went into Arabia to spend time communing with God and then returned to Damascus. Three years later, he went up to Jerusalem and had hi...

Re: Essentials of New Testament Greek - Revised - Case Question

Thank you for the replies Jason and Barry. I've forgotten most of what I learned (about 20 or so years ago) in Greek class so I won't have to put too much effort into not allowing what I learned to confuse me. I still have an old Greek Software program from back then (Greek Tutor by Parsons) that I...
