Re: Phil 1:14 ἐν κυρίῳ

Hiya Hiya, If you put this phrase in its context it becomes clear. The sentence begins in v12, Γινώσκειν δὲ ὑμᾶς βούλομαι, ἀδελφοί, ὅτι τὰ κατ᾽ ἐμὲ μᾶλλον εἰς προκοπὴν τοῦ εὐαγγελίου ἐλήλυθεν, the controlling Indicative mood verb is ἐλήλυθεν -- so: Now I want you to know, brothers, that my situation...

Bounded and Unbounded ACTIONS in Fanning

Re: Mark 10:36 Τί θέλετέ [με] ποιήσω ὑμῖν;

Is it possible that the writer/scribe was just trying to conform the language of v.36 to v. 35?

Re: Nomina Sacra

Hiya Hiya, I wrote a paper this spring on the structure of Ephesians 1:1-14. Part of my method was approaching the text from P46, and wrestling with the idea that there is nothing in the text besides the words themselves that would indicate to the reader (and hearers) how the letter is organized. Th...

Hiya Hiya,

I'm just finished my second year (of four) at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary. I have to confess I've fallen in love with Greek. I've spent two years working on Greek, and am going to spend the next two on Hebrew (while maintaining my Greek).
