Re: αθανασιαν

One main reason besides understanding the first resurrection is also a theological idea I won't get into but if this word does have the absolute idea of negation of death...that helps identify the potentate for me. Its seems from my limited understanding of greek that Paul shows by his usage here an...

Re: αθανασιαν

Its interesting to me that αθανασιαν is only used twice, one time in reference to the happy potentate and here in Corinthians. It is not used of specific individuals of his time but of an unknown group that would be mortal or physically alive when the first resurrection occurs. Other times when the ...

Re: αθανασιαν

Basically, as a short explanation...the idea that Paul seems to make by using two different terms that mean immortality, which he didn't need to do...he could just say they all put on incorruption, (αφθαρσιαν) which would be true, however he stated them separately for a reason. he is showing how the...

αθανασιαν

How strong is the negative prefix alpha to be viewed, or the alpha-privative, I believe it is called. In researching the first resurrection I have reached a conclusion that Paul, at 1 Cor 15:51-54 shows the strength of the term in contrast with αφθαρσιαν. They both could be translated immortality, b...

Re: Louw & Nida 67.66 - συντέλεια, τέλος

I am also very interested in understanding this. As the meaning really effects how some understand the sign of the parousia and the conclusion. If it is a conclusion then the sign is kinda like saying a sign of a sign of the end. For the conclusion is the sign of the end nearing and Christ's parousi...
