Re: συνεχύθη in Acts 2.6

Back to this part of the conversation - the Little Liddel is not a lexicon of Hellenistic Greek, it includes everything from Homer on up in the Classical corpus. If you want to see what references it mentions, the Great Scott lists some of that, you can see the entry here: https://logeion.uchicago....

Re: συνεχύθη in Acts 2.6

Sometimes the original, once-primary meaning gets lost. In English, most of us have lost the original primary meaning of the word "confused", the original primary meaning of "mixed up" is still available to us, but we are more likely to say "mixed" instead of "mix...

Sorry, I'll try to play by the rules.

Re: συνεχύθη in Acts 2.6

Hi, thanks for your comments. I don't think I'll try to respond to all of them in one post, but if you're willing I'd like to have a conversation about it. First, though, would you mind telling me how to cut and paste with the yellowish background like you guys are doing? I am saying that when the p...

συνεχύθη in Acts 2.6

Hi, I hope everybody had a spirit-filled Pentecost Sunday. I bet you can't guess what the sermon was about in my church. I have a proposal for the exegesis of Acts 2.6: γενομένης δὲ τῆς φωνῆς ταύτης συνῆλθεν τὸ πλῆθος καὶ συνεχύθη ὅτι ἤκουον εἷς ἕκαστος τῇ ἰδίᾳ διαλέκτῳ λαλούντων αὐτῶν I would like ...

Re: Luther's translation of αἰών/αἰώνιος

In Dutch couldn't you say "de eeuw binnengaan" or "de eeuwen binnengaan" ? Or in German, use a word like "Epoche" or equivalent? I also wonder if back in Luther's time there wasn't a word like "eeuw" in German? That maybe didn't endure into our age because Lut...

Re: εὐθύς in Mark

Thanks for the pointer to this paper. I don't know about the academia site though. It was easier to just search for it on the web, because academia wants to do all kinds of extra stuff for me. I kind of skimmed through the paper and it is the kind of thing that I was looking for. It looks like I mig...

Re: Luther's translation of αἰών/αἰώνιος

Thanks! I would love to have some help with that. You're almost on the other side of the world from me though. If you could post a couple of hints I might be able to figure it out myself and if not I can come back and we can try to find a time to do it via com. Although I don't know what that is.

Re: intro

OK, here is some stuff about me. Somebody mentioned Randall Buth in response to one of my posts. I know Randall from his living language materials for Greek and Hebrew, and from one of his fluency workshops in Fresno a few years ago. Some of his henchmen were also doing online Bible study classes fo...

Re: Luther's translation of αἰών/αἰώνιος

One idea I have contemplated is looking at Luther's writings. There is an online and free complete edition of Luther's works, over 50 volumes of 500-1000 pages each. There are some letters that Luther exchanged with Johann Staupitz, for example, discussing the meaning of μετάνοια. Luther seems to ha...
