Re: Acts 2:22-23

Wes Wood wrote: I think the repetition Ἰησοῦν... τοῦτον makes it clear that there is grammatical emphasis, Thanks for your response, Wes. I had noticed the τοῦτον and figured that it referenced back to Ἰησοῦν. What initially struck me was the 'distance' between the direct object and the verb, but th...

Acts 2:22-23

22 Ἄνδρες Ἰσραηλῖται, ἀκούσατε τοὺς λόγους τούτους. Ἰησοῦν τὸν Ναζωραῖον, ἄνδρα ⸂ἀποδεδειγμένον ἀπὸ τοῦ θεοῦ⸃ εἰς ὑμᾶς δυνάμεσι καὶ τέρασι καὶ σημείοις οἷς ἐποίησεν διʼ αὐτοῦ ὁ θεὸς ἐν μέσῳ ὑμῶν, ⸀καθὼς αὐτοὶ οἴδατε, 23 τοῦτον τῇ ὡρισμένῃ βουλῇ καὶ προγνώσει τοῦ θεοῦ ⸀ἔκδοτον διὰ ⸀χειρὸς ἀνόμων προσ...

Re: John 7:49

J. Robie, thanks. I read the passage from Jannaris and noticed this phrase, "Nevertheless, it is not rigidly adhered to even by A[ttic?] writers. etc." This points out what probably happened in my thinking. I falsely imagined that language had a mathematical precision to it!! Hopefully, I will learn...

I plan on going back through my first year grammar [A Beginning Greek Book by John Merle Rife 5th ed. 1964] and doing some non-...
