Re: Subtle differences between paired Greek words

Χαίρετε, I've been very vexed by certain Greek words that are given the exact same or similar glosses. I understand that it is possible to have two different words mean essentially the exact same thing in a language. I'm okay with that and I can live with it (though it kind of irks me). It sort of ...

Re: The meaning of εἰς in James 1:19

Additionally, I would say that εἰς here does not signify purpose, listening and speaking are not the purpose of "quick" and "slow" but used simply here as adverbials of respect or specification, "slow to listen," with regard to listening...

Re: Time

Very simply, Hebrew and Greek are not cognate languages, and these words do not derive from each other.

Re: Spam intruder?

This was my fault. I approved the person, and never saw that. I don't think it's really your fault. This kind of thing can happen easily. The funny thing was that it activated my "this could be a spammer instinct" but because he gave a real sounding name, I thought I would give him the benefit of t...

Re: Spam intruder?

This was my fault. I approved the person, and never saw that. The funny thing was that it activated my "this could be a spammer instinct" but because he gave a real sounding name, I thought I would give him the benefit of the doubt. I shall never ignore my spidey-sense again.

Re: Latin question for Greek word

I've been looking at usage for αρπἀζω but have run into some Origen quotes seemingly available only in Latin, which I don't understand. I'm wondering if someone could help me translate these verses? I used google translate, but.... raptores sunt mali, sunt et boni; et boni quidem illi, de quibus di...

Re: First Clement 7.5

There would be no basis for that translation as the text stands. It can only be an error of some sort.
