Re: John 8:25

Textus Receptua and Nestle Aland both use ὅ τι Now the interesting thing to me is that the τι has no accent and therefore is an indefinite pronoun. So, how is ὅ τι to be translated? An Exegetical Summary of John 1-8[1] says this: TEXT—Some manuscripts read ὅ τι ‘that-which something’, others read ὅ...

Re: 2 Corinthians 1:11 - Middle semantics?

Another, apparently simpler, possibility for the construction is suggested, for example in BDF §312.2 small print. In Shepherd of Hermas Similitudes 7.5 εὐχαριστεῖν is used in the active with an accusative object: καὶ τοῦτο εὐχαρίστει τῷ κυρίῳ [And give the Lord thanks for this], where τοῦτο refers ...

Re: Needing Help with Erasmus Exemplar

Not quite sure on the professnionalism of the scribe of the manuscript in question. They seem to have had an issue with the word παρθένος, correcting themselves in both places that we see παρθένον/παρθένου. That is unless this is how later minuscule manuscripts wrote out the word (see prior comment...

Re: Is κατ’ ὄνομα in 3 John 1:14/15 an idiom?

I think this is the distributive sense of κατά - each one, one at a time. In context, greet each one individually. Indeed. The typical English translation "by name" may be a little misleading. It works all right in John 10.3 where it is a case of calling sheep, but not in every context. It seems to...

Re: John 8:25 and the adverbial accusative την αρχην

If you can get access to it, Caragounis has a lengthy discussion in an article in Novum Testamentum : Chrys C Caragounis, 'What Did Jesus Mean by τὴν ἀρχήν in John 8:25?' NovT 49.2 2007 129-47 Abstract: The phrase τὴν ἀρχήν in Jn 8:25 is unique in the NT and has caused much debate in interpretation,...

Re: 3Joh 4: AcP or Accusative of Reference - and another minor question on that verse.

An additional question on V. 3: Is it the best way to print a Substitution in form of "Holding fast the truth" for Ἐχάρην γὰρ λίαν, ἐρχομένων ἀδελφῶν καὶ μαρτυρούντων σου τῇ ἀληθείᾳ , καθὼς σὺ ἐν ἀληθείᾳ περιπατεῖς, as Versions as my preferred Darby translation do: "For I rejoiced exceedingly when ...

Re: ἐξίστημι in Acts 8:11

And neither does LSJ give any indication that different spellings of the perfect have different transitivities. Were you looking at the entry for ἐξίστημι? At least under ἵστημι different forms are given, including ἕστακα in the Causal section, together with indication of occurrences of some of its...
