Re: Romans 10:10 and impersonal "passives"

Re: PhD thesis - Rudolph - Reclaiming γαρ

The best place to check if an academic work is cited is https://scholar.google.com If you search for "Reclaiming Γάρ" there, you'll get two hits, the thesis from 2014 and a book chapter by the same author from 2017.

Just in case someone doesn't have JSTOR access but might have access to articles through another medium:

Re: 2 Maccabees 3:11 Gottingen text

οὐχ ὡς is the Logos edition, too.

I'm not well versed in parsing the Gottingen apparatus, but here's what it says:
pr. και L′−62 46-52 58 311 LaXBM Sy | ὡς διαβάλλων ἦν] ουτως διαβαλλων A; ωσπερ ην διαβαλων L′ (-βολων 19; -βαλλων 542)

Re: 1Peter 3,20 force of the prepositional phrase

Correct me if I'm wrong, but boats travel δι᾽ ὕδατος, do they not?
