If you mean a paper you can read in that time, give this one a bash; It’s a 2024 paper by Wilson who pioneered the theory

Thanx Matthew, I'll take a look. I assume it's not really a paper from the future :)

Thx

Re: Relevance Theory and the Bible - a Few Resources

Hi Matthew,

If I wanted a 1 hour primer on Relevance Theory itself - not in a biblical context but generally, what its key insights and contributions are, its point/s of departure and so on, what would you recommend ?

thx

Re: Peter Rabbit in Koine Greek

No way! Nice to meet one of the very few who purchased, and even enjoyed, our work. =) I wish there were more resources like this for students of NT Greek. I have Μωχα και Μωρηδ - beastly children, meeting an equal end. I enjoyed it a lot - thanx for doing it - I was familiar with the stories befor...

Re: Greek Grammars on the Articulation of Prepositional Objects

I too have been very interested this thread. I haven't had much time to look up any of the references, but now that Greek class has let out I hope to have more time.

Re: Gen 4:23

Ok, I think I get your example now Ken, the distinction being which clause carries the precipitating event and which the consequence.
Let me know if I'm off.

Re: Gen 4:23

Perhaps to stir the pot a bit, but what's the difference between causal and final (purpose)? "I killed a man because I got wounded" would be causal. "I killed a man in order (for me) to get wounded" would be final. Yes, the purpose (getting wounded) was formulated before the killing, but it happene...

Re: Blue Letter Bible formatting - circumflexes with diaereses

Wow - it's actually encoded as that : https://codepoints.net/U+1FD7

I didn't realize there was a precomposed for this.
And that makes me wonder about ιος unless they are somehow serving a different file there.

Thx

Re: Blue Letter Bible formatting - circumflexes with diaereses

Cute. Looks like the proverbial Foo poking his head up over a wall :) I haven't checked the encoding but something got messed up somewhere - hopefully it would be a relatively easy fix.

Ok, I would let them know, so they can figure it out and get it fixed.

Thx

Re: Blue Letter Bible formatting - circumflexes with diaereses

It's not correct so there can be any number of reasons why it's wrong. Thanks. I'm less concerned about 'reasons why it's wrong' (since I know why it's wrong) and more concerned with the origin of the error, which is very consistent in BLB. It makes copying and pasting from that website problematic...
