Re: Galatians 4:12-14 Γίνεσθε ὡς ἐγώ

If you want to look at "the discourse unit as a whole", I think that might mean looking at Galatians 4:8-20, looking at just two verses does not really do that. In context, I think Romans 6:19 is talking about human limitations when it uses this phrase: ἐλευθερωθέντες δὲ ἀπὸ τῆς ἁμαρτίας ἐδουλώθητε ...

Ps 18/19 Εἰς τὸ τέλος· ψαλμὸς τῷ Δαυιδ.

I was surprised by the word τέλος here:
Ps 18 (LXX) wrote:Εἰς τὸ τέλος· ψαλμὸς τῷ Δαυιδ.
I initially assumed that Εἰς τὸ τέλος translates לַמְנַצֵּ֗חַ here:
Ps 19 (BHS) wrote:לַמְנַצֵּ֗חַ מִזְמ֥וֹר לְדָוִֽד׃
But can τέλος mean choirmaster? I mean, it can't, right? So what is going on here?

Is the fact that Ἱκανόν is neuter helpful, i.e., that it does not mean "the two swords are enough"?
Good point.

Luke 22:38 Ἱκανόν ἐστιν

I am having doubts about an interpretation of a text that I kind of like, but don't have evidence for. Can you help keep me honest, but also provide evidence if you have it? Here's the text: Καὶ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς, Ὅτε ἀπέστειλα ὑμᾶς ἄτερ βαλλαντίου καὶ πήρας καὶ ὑποδημάτων, μή τινος ὑστερήσατε; οἱ δὲ εἶπ...

Re: Case Frame Analysis

This is really useful data - I have Danove's data and am very impressed by it. It's cool to see this in Logos, and I like your article on this.

I do think it's important to make this more accessible. And a good lexicon, informed by case frame analysis, may be the ideal place to do this.

Re: Aorist indicative with future temporal reference

One might add that in the Dutch-authored Cambridge Grammar of Classical Greek [2017] time in the Greek indicative is presented matter-of-factly without doubt or quibble, 33:1-3. In the CGCC Bibliography, admittedly restricted rather than comprehensive and maximal, B. Fanning is listed with his 1990...

Re: Aorist indicative with future temporal reference

2. Students sometimes think that because the discussions keep continuing in NT Greek forums that there is reliable support for the aspect-only theory as a viable theory. Actually, that "support" is based on carefully picked starting hypotheses plus an echo-chamber effect (that has not adequately an...

Re: Aorist indicative with future temporal reference

Here are Campbell's examples from Basics of Verbal Aspect in Biblical Greek: Future Aorist More commonly, the aorist tense-form may be used in future-referring contexts. Two of these are straightforward. Mark 11:24 διὰ τοῦτο λέγω ὑμῖν, πάντα ὅσα προσεύχεσθε καὶ αἰτεῖσθε, πιστεύετε ὅτι ἐλάβετε , καὶ...
