Re: Good discussion of predicate nominals?

“The use of μένει as an equative verb, ... with Melchizedek as the understood subject and ἱερεὺς as the predicate nominative, is unusual ...” Hebrews, Dana M. Harris, B&H 2019, p. ix. Clarification: What's unusual isn't the syntax. Dana M. Harris observes that in the book of Hebrews μένω is usually...

Re: Good discussion of predicate nominals?

While working on Melchizedek I stumbled across a sample of a predicate nominative with a non-equative verb in Hebrews 7:3. Heb. 7:3 ἀπάτωρ ἀμήτωρ ἀγενεαλόγητος, μήτε ἀρχὴν ἡμερῶν μήτε ζωῆς τέλος ἔχων, ἀφωμοιωμένος δὲ τῷ υἱῷ τοῦ θεοῦ, μένει ἱερεὺς εἰς τὸ διηνεκές. “The use of μένει as an equative ver...

Pseudo-Athenasius History of Melchizedek

Pseudo-Athenasius History of Melchizedek Spent the last several weeks focusing on the priesthood of Melchizedek. Yesterday I discovered a ninth century (?) folk tale about Melchizedek. The first few lines read somewhat similar to Genesis narrative. This is easy reading. Thought it might provide an ...

Re: Good discussion of predicate nominals?

οἶκος πνευματικὸς. Complement in a double nominative subject-complement construction. Some understand this nominative as appositional to the ὑμεῖς implied in οἰκοδομεῖσθε (Schreiner, 105), but this leaves the verb awkwardly without a complement. Applying insights from Culy (83–87), this is better r...

Re: Orations of St Athanasius Against the Arians

Oration I § 14.3 Οὐ γὰρ ἀτελὴς οὐσία τοῦ Πατρὸς ἦν ποτε , ἵνα καὶ τὸ ἴδιον αὐτῆς ἐπισυμβαίνῃ ταύτῃ· οὐδὲ ὡς ἄνθρωπος ἐξ ἀνθρώπου γεγέννηται ὁ Υἱὸς, ἵνα καὶ ὑστερίζῃ τῆς πατρῴας ὑπάρξεως· ἀλλὰ Θεοῦ γέννημά ἐστι, καὶ ὡς Θεοῦ τοῦ ἀεὶ ὄντος ἴδιος ὢν Υἱὸς, ἀϊδίως ὑπάρχει. Ἀνθρώπων μὲν γὰρ ἴδιον τὸ ἐν χρ...

Re: Orations of St Athanasius Against the Arians

Oration I §12
τίς οὕτως ἐστὶν ἀνόητος, ὡς ἀμφιβάλλειν περὶ τοῦ ἀεὶ εἶναι τὸν Υἱόν ;

This might be understood as a condensed summary of the entire project.

Re: Interchange of Future and Aorist Participle?

In Martyrdom of Peter I have found the following passage where a future participle is present in the text (Accordance module, which is from the Bonnet Acta Apostolorum Apocrypha, 3 vols, Leipzig: 1891-1903) serving what appears to be a the normal function of an aorist participle: MPeter 3.2 Ὁ δὲ Πέ...
