Re: Grammatical Problems with the NA reading in Acts 25,6

>Notice that ἀποκτεῖναι is active, better, "They say that more than 5,000 [of Hannibal's troops) died, but they >[Hannibal's forces] killed no more than 500 [of the Romans]." Thank you, yes! (I leave my faulty passive rendering printed here above as it was, and of course your are right). And here is...

Re: Errors In Revelation?

>Peter - is this clear to you now? If not, may I suggest that we take it offline? No, if it is clear to a "majority", ok, for me in the minority it is not, but not my major point in this debate. If someone wants to contact me, I am ok and thankful, being interested in how the masculine version would...

Re: Errors In Revelation?

How then, if clear, would the masculine form be? If you can tell me that, I would believe. In my thinking it is one and the same form. To the other clear examples of distinct masculine adjectives please see some examples printed above. I don`t count that as proof at all, but as there are clear mascu...

Re: Grammatical Problems with the NA reading in Acts 25,6

Dear Barry, I hope I dont get nervous comments writing on TC, but if it is not according to the rules here, I delete or quit doing so: To the NA reading: P74 has a quite obvious error and singular reading here (checked the Picture of it by my own): plionas , Vaticanus has a false singular reading as...

Re: Errors In Revelation?

Let us come to the crucial point: if the accusative ἀντίμιμον in the phrase κιβωτὸν ἀντίμιμον is, as you and Randall claim, 100% feminine and 100% no masculine, then how would the masculine form be: I say it is one and the same, namely ἀντίμιμον. So not to decide, which gender. So I see no reason to...

Re: Errors In Revelation?

Good to see you back, Barry! >Then look the word up in any lexicon I did, but I found in the LS, that it is a two ender (do not know how you English speaking folks name it), that means: the feminine and the masculine form is one and the same. So not to determine. If I am wrong, what is correct? Erra...

Grammatical Problems with the NA reading in Acts 25,6

Dear friends, in a TC discussion board the question was raised, if the following reading in the NA text is normal or sound Greek: Acts 25:6 Διατρίψας δὲ ἐν αὐτοῖς ἡμέρας οὐ πλείους ὀκτὼ ἢ δέκα , καταβὰς εἰς Καισάρειαν, τῇ ἐπαύριον καθίσας ἐπὶ τοῦ βήματος ἐκέλευσεν τὸν Παῦλον ἀχθῆναι. The ESV has put...

Re: σουδάριον - sudarium and/or סודרא

A σουδάριον was a cloth for binding the head of a dead person, at least according to Gregorius Antiochus, Epitaphia, 1.69,13. I looked that up in the TLG when I took a look at the passage in John. If interested I could quote Gregorius.
