Re: Peters' Thesis: The Greek Article

That’s great, I found him really gracious and willing to share his time. Let me know if I am well off base, would be good to know if I have misunderstood him!

Re: Peters' Thesis: The Greek Article

Sorry, the last post was getting long and I just realised I didn’t answer your question re John Εἶπεν οὖνhim. αὐτῷ ὁ Πειλᾶτος· οὐκοῦν βασιλεὺς εἶ σύ; ἀπεκρίθη ὁ Ἰησοῦς· σὺ λέγεις ὅτι βασιλεύς *εἰμι (tyndale house version) So for βασιλεὺς to be abstract, the way I would understand Peters is that Pila...

Re: Peters' Thesis: The Greek Article

I read his thesis with interest some time back and found some things interesting. One example being that morphologically the definite article seems closer to the relative pronoun, and syntactically it is found with other determiners but not with the relative pronoun. This is suggestive of a link bet...

Klaas Bentein - verbal periphrasis in ancient greek

Hi all, I am preparing a session on periphrasis for the chap I am teaching first year Greek. I am reading Klaas Bentein’s 2016 book on the topic. Just wanted a check as to whether anyone knows of any major issues with his analysis that I should be careful about. I have rad and benefited greatly from...

Re: Imperatives and encouragement

Stirling, I am puzzled as to why we seem to be talking past each other here. I couldn't agree more with that example, my whole post was trying to show examples (which that could well be one) of contexts of situation where the imperative has to be modified in its meaning by the hearer. A similar exam...

Re: Imperatives and encouragement

Ok, I think we are actually in agreement without necessarily being clear on it. I am absolutely not arguing for a code model of translation, I am approaching it from a RT perspective that would indicate that the "code" is there, and constrains interpretation but needs to be padded out with reference...

Re: Imperatives and encouragement

That definitely isn’t what I am trying to do. Not well read enough to argue for something genuinely novel. I am just applying articles by wilson etc and other articles from different perspectives that I read in the past without having given it much more than a quick afternoon’s thought. I need to pr...

Re: Imperatives and encouragement

Hey Stirling, can you clarify what you mean? I am not arguing for multiple semantic categories, I am listing different contextual instances that it finds itself in. The minimalist part being that there is a desire for something and a belief that it is possible. Not the most rigorous definition, but ...

Re: Imperatives and encouragement

This is the basic structure of my thinking so far. Nowhere near complete and hacked together in my break at work. Any suggestions on how to develop it I suspect that a common objection to my view of depression from a Christian perspective would be to raise passages such as Php 4:4 and 1 Thess 5:16. ...
