Re: In Mark 14:12, how should ὅτε τὸ πάσχα ἔθυον be understood?

So only context can tell us if custom or simultaneity is intended. That' what I was afraid of! Thanks. What I'm afraid of is not seeing why it must be this way or that way. It was the time at when the Jews customarily offered the Passover at the Temple, and it was the time when the Jews at that spe...

Re: its all greek to me

There's an ellipsis here by which ἀγαπήσεις τὸν πλησίον σου ὡς σεαυτόν means: ἀγαπήσεις τὸν πλησίον σου ὡς [ἀγαπᾷς] σεαυτόν. Love your neighbor as [you love] yourself. No information is encoded in the accent itself. I'm not sure what information you think is encoded there. If you learn the noun/adje...

Re: In Mark 14:12, how should ὅτε τὸ πάσχα ἔθυον be understood?

Should I understand that the use of the singular "sacrificed" refers to a single victim? Or might it be using the iterative aspect to refer to all of the lambs of the Pesach being slaughtered at the temple? The assumed "they" of ἔθυον should be understood as the Jews generally (...

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.
