Re: Is Ὀργίζεσθε in Eph. 4:26 a concesion or command?

To be honest, I haven't read any sources that espouse this view. As to why I understand this verse this way, I can't give a detailed explanation in a single post and doubt anyone would be interested if I did. I can summarize though by saying that I believe chapter 2 sets up the comparison that the a...

Re: Is Ὀργίζεσθε in Eph. 4:26 a concession or command?

Stephen Hughes: Have you begun noticing and looking for the "missing" things in contextual sets of vocabulary yet? Do you suppliment them in your compositions and imaginings by analogy from other contexts, or do you go looking for them in other passages / texts with the same context? Has that starte...

Re: Is Ὀργίζεσθε in Eph. 4:26 a concesion or command?

I wasn't testing you. I believe your approach gives you a significant advantage. Unfortunately, I don't have time to study any subject in a comparable way as I would like to. I have more interests than I can pursue, too many demands on my time, and no means to make a major change. My gains have been...

Re: Is Ὀργίζεσθε in Eph. 4:26 a concesion or command?

Stephen Hughes: The outside perspective is the best position to be in to answer that question, it is not really appropriate for me to confirm the rightness of my own opinion; ( "I believe that my opinion / suspicion is right." ) Ha Ha. I concede your point. What I meant by that statement was that my...

Re: Is Ὀργίζεσθε in Eph. 4:26 a concesion or command?

I am afraid you would be in a better position to answer that question than I. You seem to have a much better handle on the language than I do. That being said, I believe I have read at least one text outside of the New Testament that seemed to have that type of meaning, though specifically what that...

Re: Is Ὀργίζεσθε in Eph. 4:26 a concesion or command?

I hadn't thought about it that way before. I agree with your statement about placing limits on anger, but I read this passage as establishing the pressing need to address disagreements. Basically, is this issue something that should make a Christian angry? If it is it should be addressed promptly. I...

Re: NT Greek meets Linguistics

Thank you for your reply, Dr. Buth. This is the type of response I had hoped for. I try not to form an opinion about things like this since I do not have the ability to investigate these types of claims. However, I am always interested in noting the informed positions of those who do. I only wish I ...

Re: NT Greek meets Linguistics

I have no way of interacting with much of this information but am curious about it. If Aramaic is not behind the greek of these gospels, what is? If anything...

Re: Discourse Features of New Testament Greek

I am so glad. I have a tendency to convey the opposite of what I mean. In this case, I was afraid this was one of those instances.
