Re: Mk.14:4,5

I don't think I misunderstood you, but my meaning wasn't clear. I had in mind the source of the content rather than a description of the utterance (crowd's quotation vs. narrator's explanation). I intended to say that the absence of γάρ would make me more likely to read the sentence as a continuatio...

Re: Mk.14:4,5

Without γάρ, I would be more likely to read this as a quote rather than an explanatory clause, though as you say there is no reason why it must read that way. However, I have been doing quite a bit of reading in John and admit that my comment has likely been affected by this on some level! If it is ...

Re: ήμει̑ν

I believe that it does appear. Here is an example from the Priene inscription: "Επειδη η παντα διαταξασα του βιου ημων προνοια σπουδην εισενενκαμενη και φιλοτιμιαν το τεληοτατον τω βιω διεκοσμησεν ενενκαμενη τον Σεβαστον, ον εις ευεργεσιαν ανθρωπων επληρωσεν αρετης, ωσπερ ημειν και τοις μεθ ημας σωτ...

Re: Help needed in Rev

On a side note, I just realized that my 666th post on this forum was the first of my posts in this Revelation thread. :lol: What about your 616th post? :lol: Upon careful consideration, the moderators found that the post in question was of inferior quality. Apparently the testimony of my board asso...

Re: Help needed in Rev

Sadly, the larger section isn't much help either. There still isn't enough of the text for me to follow the mathematical argument that Euclid is making, but I'm skeptical that it would make a difference either way. I thought that you were suggesting that the text referred specifically to the edges o...

Re: Help needed in Rev

Dear friends, thank you for the input and I was struggeling as well and I was not happy with my first suggestion and share the doubts you have. So i did some TLG research and give another and I hope better solution: A parallel in Euclid, Elements Demonstratio 10.9 shows this: πέντε ἄρα τὰ ἀπὸ τῆς Κ...

Welcome to the forum. Please, let me know when your book on Daniel is available to the public.
The Book on Daniel is out and it offers much support for an early date.
Thanks for the update. I must confess I am interested in reading it.

Re: Help needed in Rev

Dear friends, can anyone help me to understand the last sentence in Revelation 21:16 (the Byz reading is the δώδεκα, left out by TR/NA, as it was too difficult, I think, but I want to translate Byz, with the number 12) : Καὶ ἡ πόλις τετράγωνος κεῖται, καὶ τὸ μῆκος αὐτῆς ὅσον τὸ πλάτος. Καὶ ἐμέτρησε...

This is how I would translate the passage you posted: διὰ τοῦτο λέγεται ἐν βιβλίῳ πόλεμος τοῦ κυρίου τὴν Ζωοβ ἐφλόγισεν καὶ τοὺς χειμάρρους Αρνων καὶ τοὺς χειμάρρους κατέστησεν κατοικίσαι Ηρ καὶ πρόσκειται τοῖς ὁρίοις Μωαβ καὶ ἐκεῖθεν τὸ φρέαρ τοῦτό ἐστιν τὸ φρέαρ ὃ εἶπεν κύριος πρὸς Μωυσῆν συνάγαγ...
