Re: Can Pronouns "Modify" Verbs?

Quick follow-up question: You said, "The reason that βαπτσθήτω is singular is because the grammatical subject is ἕκαστος, "each." Since this is a nominative singular third person reference it throws the verb of which it's the subject into the 3rd person singular." I am having trouble locating why ἕ...

Re: Can Pronouns "Modify" Verbs?

I am having trouble locating why ἕκαστος is a nominative singular third person reference. I see the nom. case in parsing, but am unclear on where you're deriving the third person reference? Compare with English: "You do" (second person plural or singlular) "I do" (first person singular) "They do" (...

Re: Can Pronouns "Modify" Verbs?

Pronouns are used as verbal arguments : Gen 1:28 ויאמר להם אלהים פרו ורבו ומלאו את־הארץ וכבשׁה ΣΥΜΜΑΧΟΣ εἶπεν δὲ αὐτοῖς ὁ θεός· αὐξάνεσθε καὶ πληθύνεσθε καὶ πληρώσατε τὴν γῆν καὶ ὑποτάξατε αὐτὴν ... Where αὐτὴν renders the pronominal suffix on וכבשׁה . Interesting. Will try to dig a little deeper i...

Re: Can Pronouns "Modify" Verbs?

Well, first of all the person who wrote this is an idiot who doesn't have a clue about how Greek actually works. He, she or it has taken one factoid about the language and completely misapplied it (the antecedent agreement). No, pronouns do not modify verbs. They can be part of a prepositional phra...

Can Pronouns "Modify" Verbs?

Πέτρος δὲ ⸂πρὸς αὐτούς· μετανοήσατε, [φησίν⸃,] καὶ βαπτισθήτω ἕκαστος ὑμῶν ⸀ἐπὶ τῷ ὀνόματι ⸆ Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ εἰς ἄφεσιν ⸄τῶν ἁμαρτιῶν ὑμῶν⸅ καὶ λήμψεσθε τὴν δωρεὰν τοῦ ἁγίου πνεύματος.

Re: λαλεῖν in I Cor. 14.34, 35?

Although, I did read a good point some years ago about Thayer that if one could afford nothing more Grimm-Thayer was a decent inexpensive resource since "many of the Greek word-meanings in his lexicon have not changed" ... I have made a habit of comparing Grimm-Thayer with Danker 3rd Ed., they sit ...

Re: λαλεῖν in I Cor. 14.34, 35?

But, yea', it really frustrates me to hear & read preachers appeal to "Strong's" :x. And, it seems no matter how many times I point out the dangers of these resources - they will still appeal to the same :roll:. I think 1 Cor 12:10 has this right: For when it is Strong's, then I am weak. :lol: :lol...

Re: λαλεῖν in I Cor. 14.34, 35?

The reason this is a difficult passage has to do with broader hermeneutical and theological concerns. The Greek is actually quite straightforward, but what often happens with passages that have become theologically charged is that people try to do strange things with the Greek in order to get the p...
