Re: Latin question for Greek word

Thanks very much indeed. Origen is quite an original thinker - this passage seems to be referencing the seizing of the kingdom as the Church father's understood Matthew 11:12, but warning that those who don't want to give up their sin won't really obtain the kingdom's spiritual riches. Perhaps refer...

Re: Latin question for Greek word

Est tamen aliquid et secundum spiritalem intelligentium culpabiliter rapere, sicut illi laudabiliter 'rapiunt Regnum coelerum'. Ut verbi causa d...

Re: Latin question for Greek word

I'm wondering if some latin light could be shed on Origen's further explanation of this verse. It seems just be talking about 1 Cor 6:10 about άραγες /raptores being excluded from the Kingdom of God, and then the latin translationr reads: "Est tamen aliquid et secondum spirtalem intelligentium culpa...

Identifying an indistinct Greek word

On Fred Sanders "Scriptorium Daily" blog there is a an indistinct printed Greek word from Polanus's Axioms. They cannot make it out and I cannot figure out how to upload the gif here.

Does an accusative 'mean' this much?

Matt. 5:6 μακάριοι οἱ πεινῶντες καὶ διψῶντες τὴν δικαιοσύνην, ὅτι αὐτοὶ χορτασθήσονται. James Boice comments that an accusative adds quite a strong amount of meaning... "The significance of this point for interpreting the fourth beatitude lies in the fact that the normal Greek usage is entirely aban...

Online Conversational Course?

This is a follow on question from a comment Barry H. made about having been helped by an online conversational class which was only for an hour a week. I'm interested in something like that and wondered if there are any current or soon to be held. Especially I would like to ask all those with such e...

Re: In Acts 13:48 why the [effective] pluperfect?

Acts 13:48 ἀκούοντα δὲ τὰ ἔθνη ἔχαιρον καὶ ἐδόξαζον τὸν λόγον τοῦ θεοῦ, καὶ ἐπίστευσαν ὅσοι ἦσαν τεταγμένοι εἰς ζωὴν αἰώνιον· From what I have read using a perfect links the effect to the event described. Is that what you mean, Mike, when using the word "persistent' or are you referring to something...
