Re: What Modern Greek Grammars do not take an Aspect only view?

Matthew, I am in total agreement with you. Verb Aspect should be presented in the simplest possible manner. I started to read Porter's dissertation 1989 and gave up very quickly. I am going recommend Plummer's books and videos. That's why I participate in these discussions. Need to keep up to date w...

Re: What Modern Greek Grammars do not take an Aspect only view?

Yep, you are correct. I really like Plummers videos that he has created to use in conjunction with their new grammar. I just watched the intro video on verbs and his view seems to be what I was looking for ( https://youtu.be/LOl2EzDxpSg?t=795 starts at about 13:15). I think after struggling for a w...

Re: One Greek Grammar or Many for beginners Greek

I might add, don't use Mounce because I did. Look at what you have and see what you like and then use that. 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. First step is to clarify your o...

Re: John 8:25

Alford[1] references Daniel 8:1 Theod. Dan. 8:1 Theod. Ἐν ἔτει τρίτῳ τῆς βασιλείας Βαλτασαρ τοῦ βασιλέως ὅρασις ὤφθη πρός με, ἐγὼ Δανιηλ, μετὰ τὴν ὀφθεῖσάν μοι τὴν ἀρχήν . Dan. 8:1 OG ¶ Ἔτους τρίτου βασιλεύοντος Βαλτασαρ ὅρασις, ἣν εἶδον ἐγὼ Δανιηλ μετὰ τὸ ἰδεῖν με τὴν πρώτην . [1] Then comes anothe...

Re: John 8:25

This is of course is odd in that John uses ἐν ἀρχῇ, ἀπ' ἀρχῆς, ἐξ ἀρχῆς elsewhere. Statements that take this form are common in exegetical literature. I don't think they are valid. If you press that logic it leads to absurd results. In a small sample of someones writing what has been done elsewhere...

Re: Romans 13.1-7 & Civil Authority Question

Yes, do try to keep it to the Greek... :) Note the vocabulary, and compare it with the actual language used to describe the leadership in the church, such as in 2 Tim 3. Not even remotely the same. I don't see anything in 2Tim 3 relevant to Romans 13.1-7. 1Tim 3 talks about leaders ... 1Tim 3:4 τοῦ...

Re: Meta Language

Why should I not be interested in this. I was asking this question long before you were on the forum. What benefit does a student who wants to read Koine attain from becoming an expert in grammatical tagging? If your objective is to talk about secondary exegetical literature then then there is plen...
