Re: John 1:18 and Exodus 3:14 LXX

More plausible is that the translators, possibly influenced by neo-Platonism , are giving an interpretive paraphrase to make it a statement of God's absolute existence. I have been reading statements like "... possibly influenced by neo-Platonism ..." for eons and rarely if ever does anyone explain...

Re: Athanasius Contra Gentes

This isn't a discussion of doctrine. I am looked for evidence that Athanasius is framing his discussion in a cognitive framework inherited from greek philosophy. In other words this is a question about semantics at the framework level. Very much a language issue. The contrast between the contemplati...

Re: Doctrina Jacobi

A memorable quote from Doctrina Jacobi[1]: Ἰούδας γὰρ καὶ Ισραηλ καὶ τὰ ἔθνη τὰ εἰς Χριστὸν πιστεύσαντα μίαν ἀρχὴν ἔχουσι καὶ βασιλέα τὸν Χριστὸν. These words are inserted following a citation from Greek Hosea 2:1b-2 <Hos. 2:1> ... καὶ ἔσται ἐν τῷ τόπῳ, οὗ ἐρρέθη αὐτοῖς Οὐ λαός μου ὑμεῖς, ἐκεῖ κληθή...

Re: Mk. 6.14

Rephrasing the question: What is the function of ὁ βαπτίζων in Mk. 6.14. Mark 1:4 ἐγένετο Ἰωάννης [ὁ] βαπτίζων ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ καὶ κηρύσσων βάπτισμα μετανοίας εἰς ἄφεσιν ἁμαρτιῶν. Mark 6:14 Καὶ ἤκουσεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Ἡρῴδης, φανερὸν γὰρ ἐγένετο τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἔλεγον ὅτι Ἰωάννης ὁ βαπτίζων ἐγήγερται ἐκ ...

Re: Doctrina Jacobi

The following text raises a number of very interesting questions. Sarah Gador-Whyte addresses some of them. Most of them are off topic for this forum. Πίστευσον τῷ Θεῷ, κύρι Ἰάκωβε, ὅτι ἐὰν πιάσουσί με οἱ Ἰουδαῖοι καὶ οἱ Σαρακηνοὶ καὶ κομμάτια κομμάτια κατακόψουσι τὸ σῶμά μου, οὐ μὴ ἀρνήσομαι τὸν Χρ...

Re: Col. 1:15

Stirling, have you got a recommendation on a grammar/reference work on Koine you like ? I don't know of a particularly pure, in this sense, work on Greek syntax. I am completely out of touch with what has been published recently. The Cambridge Grammer is too new for me to get through ILL so I haven...
