Relevance Theory and the Bible - a Few Resources

I have posted a few links recently to articles applying relevance theory to the Bible. Rather than spam the board, I figured I would gather together the ones I know of into one post. I am sure that there are others out there, and I am sure that there are many more that are critical of it than I have...

Re: Verbless clauses

First of all, terminology: elision is the omission of sounds from a word. Ellipsis is the omission of words due to understanding them from context. You can elide a sound; you can't ellipse a word, however, the verb of choice is "omit." Well I certainly am on a role with the incorrect terminology re...

Verbless clauses

I am reading through Luke again at the moment and in Luke 4:18 it reads πνεῦμα κυρίου ἐπʼ ἐμὲ οὗ εἵνεκεν ἔχρισέν με εὐαγγελίσασθαι πτωχοῖς, ἀπέσταλκέν με,⸆ κηρύξαι αἰχμαλώτοις ἄφεσιν καὶ τυφλοῖς ἀνάβλεψιν, ἀποστεῖλαι τεθραυσμένους ἐν ἀφέσει, I have highlighted the first clause which I would classify...

Jonly Joihin - Thesis on δε

In my obsessive searching for new material I just stumbled across this 2019 thesis on the meaning of δε in 1 corinthians https://digital.library.sbts.edu/bitstream/handle/10392/5819/Joihin_sbts_0207D_10524.pdf?sequence=1&isAllowed=y Figured it would be worth posting as unlikely to have been spotted ...

Re: PhD thesis - Rudolph - Reclaiming γαρ

So I am finally going through Zakowski’s thesis and am comparing against Casson’s and Rudolph’s views as I go. Zakowski references Heliodorus of Emesa in the Aethiopica and his translation doesn’t really fit for Rudolph’s view (roughly that gar signals the presence of a response to a perceived quest...
