Re: New Greek Teacher

The goal of the students (and my goal as their teacher) is to better understand the theology of the Text, and thus be better able to communicate its truths. That is, being able to identify grammatical-syntactical relationships present in the text to eliminate ambiguity and obtain a more robust inte...

Re: New Greek Teacher

Intermediate Greek Grammar: Syntax for Students of the New Testament by [Mathewson, David L., Emig, Elodie Ballantine] Perhaps the first question you need to ask is what are you trying to teach?

Re: Athanasius Contra Gentes

I agree it read a bit strangely to me when I saw your post.

I wonder however if it rather conveys something ...

§ 33.3(a) ἡ γὰρ κίνησις τῆς ψυχῆς οὐδὲν ἕτερόν ἐστιν ἢ ἡ ζωὴ αὐτῆς· ὥσπερ ἀμέλει καὶ τὸ σῶμα τότε ζῇν λέγομεν ὅτε κινεῖται, καὶ τότε θάνατον αὐτοῦ εἶναι ὅτε τῆς κινήσεως παύεται. τοῦτο δὲ καὶ ἀπὸ τῆς ἐν σώματι καθάπαξ ἐνεργείας αὐτῆς φανερώτερον ἄν τις ἴδοι. § 33.3(a) For the movement of the soul i...

Packaging again. οὐχ ... ἁπλῶς forms "bookends" around the included text. § 27.2 καυχήσονται γὰρ οὐχ ὡς λίθους καὶ ξύλα καὶ μορφὰς ἀνθρώπων καὶ ἀλόγων πτηνῶν τε καὶ ἑρπετῶν καὶ τετραπόδων ἁπλῶς , ἀλλ' ἥλιον καὶ σελήνην καὶ πάντα τὸν κατ' οὐρανὸν κόσμον, καὶ γῆν αὖ πάλιν καὶ σύμπασαν τοῦ ὑγροῦ τὴν φ...

Re: The discursive use of και

I had begun a post on this a few days back but have not found time to follow up further. I basically arrived at the position that you require a clear definition of status was required to determine the answer to your question. Is a grouping noun like συνεκλεκτὴ, ἐκκλησία and so on are of the same st...

I thought about becoming my own lexicographer. A worthy project for sure but .... Hmmm....
Serious linguists I have known read tons of primary sources. Don't rely on Lexicons.

Re: Why does apeiros take genitive

Best to try looking at samples before making judgements about semantics. Joannes Chrysostomus Sermons on Acts of the Apostles Ὁ τοιοῦτος καὶ δυνήσεται γενέσθαι βασιλεὺς, καὶ πάντα τὸν κόσμον λαβεῖν, καὶ ἐν τιμῇ εἶναι μεγίστῃ· ὁ ταύτην πλέων τὴν θάλασσαν οὐ- δέποτε ναυάγιον ὑποστήσεται, ἀλλὰ πάντα εἴ...
