Re: γραφει τους λογους

Don’t use Google Translate for Koine Greek. It’s not set up for it, and modern Greek is too different.

Re: In 1 Peter 3:22 is the subjugation complete or ongoing?

Can you explain what you're really getting at? Your question appears to be asking whether an aorist is a present or an aorist. http://www.ntgreek.org/answers/time_element_of_aorist_participle.htm From what I understand, which is limited, an aorist doesn't always include a time element (which is why...

Re: In Revelation 11:15 to whom does βασιλεύσει refer?

The normal approach is to resolve this theologically but I'm wondering if it should be explained in Koine terms as ad sensum (as is ἐσάλπισεν): Revelation 11:15 καὶ ὁ ἕβδομος ἄγγελος ἐσάλπισεν καὶ ἐγένοντο φωναὶ μεγάλαι ἐν τῷ οὐρανῷ λέγοντες ἐγένετο ἡ βασιλεία τοῦ κόσμου τοῦ κυρίου ἡμῶν καὶ τοῦ Χρι...

Since you've now looked at it, does he talk about referentiality or...?
He does, kind of. He's a lot more interested in the effect of the adjective, which was a surprise to me.

Re: 1 John 5:20 and the Granville Sharp Rule

Now that I've had the opportunity to consult Wallace's 2009 book on the Granville-Sharp construction, it turns out that he has an entire chapter on 1 John 5:20, which concludes as follows: In conclusion, 1 John 5:20 apparently contains a legitimate TSKS construction. This construction conforms both ...

Re: 1 John 5:20 and the Granville Sharp Rule

Based on the above citations, it seems to me that 1 John 5:20 is a valid GS construction. Am I overlooking something? IIRC, Wallace requires both noun to denote a person, but in 1 John 5:20 the second noun is ζωή "life." Since it's a predicating construction, ζωή would have a person has a referent....

Re: Convert from Erasmian

Now, for some reason I'm quite flexible with pronunciation schemes for Ancient Greek, but the only valid pronunciation system for Latin is the Classical. Away with the Ecclesiastical. If it was good enough for Caesar, it's good enough for me! Nonsense. If it was good enough for Augustine, it's good...

Re: Jude 1

I generally avoid using the word "govern" since it is completely meaningless to anyone who didn't study old fashion grammars. No point in perpetuating the use of archaic terminology. I don't think that "govern" is that archaic. Isn't Chomsky 2.0 called "Government and Binding"? It's also, I believe...
