Re: "Against" in 1 Cor 6:18

Dear experts, Now Mike Aubrey needs to weigh in too ;-> I'd say Barry has a solid handle on it. ;) I'd add to this... εἰς of course is used with an extremely wide range of usage and careful attention has to be paid to the context. With verbs that imply hostility, such as attacking, insulting and so...

Re: Heb 11:17 προσενήνοχεν - προσέφερεν

Mike — my apologies if I'm derailing the thread — I've always puzzled over the tense change in the two parallel clauses in Hebrews 11:17. Any suggestions on the difference in nuance between perfect and aorist in this verse? The second is actually an imperfect, not an aorist. But the difference simp...

Re: ζῶ ἐν πίστει, ἐκ πίστεως ζήσεται

It sounds like what you want is to examine how these two prepositions would otherwise function with other objects when ζάω is the main verb.

Re: Morphology Paradigms

Here's the current version of my own analysis of Adjective morphology paradigms, for what it's worth: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1NKJrdJ3xZsgPwl5pWxwCkEl3X6lYV90iaCAgFS97aeA/edit?usp=sharing As I see it, there are basically two types of binary gender (neuter vs. non-neuter) adjectives, t...

You can't see the other examples for the parallels they are because you've misunderstood the word order. Please let appea...
