Romans 5:20

I hope this is the best place to put this. I believe I have a decent understanding of what this verse means, but, on my initial reading and rereading of it, I came up with a couple of different possible translations. I know which one is most likely, but I am not sure if any of the others are even po...

Re: Present Active Indicative versus Aorist Active Indicativ

That is how I understand it. As before, though, I hope someone will verify that for you. Sorry, I had so much difficulty explaining what I meant to say.

Re: Present Active Indicative versus Aorist Active Indicativ

If you will forgive me, I will take one last stab at this. The aorist states only that something occurred in the past. It cannot tell you the duration of the event or how long ago in the past that event occurred. I believe this corresponds to your second option. In regards to the two signs, the cont...

Re: Present Active Indicative versus Aorist Active Indicativ

The reference does refer to past time here since the vision occurred before it was written down. However, the events in the vision would not have to have occurred in the past relative to the time of the speaker. They could refer events yet to have occurred at the composition of the book, but this is...

Re: Present Active Indicative versus Aorist Active Indicativ

3καὶ ὤφθη ἄλλο σημεῖον ἐν τῷ οὐρανῷ, καὶ ἰδοὺ δράκων μέγας πυρρός, ἔχων κεφαλὰς ἑπτὰ καὶ κέρατα δέκα καὶ ἐπὶ τὰς κεφαλὰς αὐτοῦ ἑπτὰ διαδήματα, I believe that the clearest indication of sequence is in verse three, but it is not the verb. It is the phrase "καὶ ὤφθη ἄλλο σημεῖον ἐν τῷ οὐρανῷ" or "and a...

Re: Present Active Indicative versus Aorist Active Indicativ

If you are able to give the greek text you are looking at, it will help others answer your question. , 4καὶ ἡ οὐρὰ αὐτοῦ σύρει τὸ τρίτον τῶν ἀστέρων τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ ἔβαλεν αὐτοὺς εἰς τὴν γῆν. καὶ ὁ δράκων ἕστηκεν ἐνώπιον τῆς γυναικὸς τῆς μελλούσης τεκεῖν, ἵνα ὅταν τέκῃ τὸ τέκνον αὐτῆς καταφάγῃ.

Re: ὁ βασιλεὺς Ἰσραήλ: objective or subjective genitive?

I was meaning the only variants listed in the readers greek New Testament are those few that vary from the "standard" critical text. It has no apparatus. I was saying that the NA's apparatus is more complete than the UBS. I am referring to the manuscript evidence it lists.

Re: ὁ βασιλεὺς Ἰσραήλ: objective or subjective genitive?

I figured it out. When I was referring to the reader, i was intending the Reader's Greek New Testament. I have always used the labels reader, UBS, and NA for the three. Sorry i wasn't as clear as I meant to be.

Re: ὁ βασιλεὺς Ἰσραήλ: objective or subjective genitive?

Thtanks very much, David, for your help and insights. I am trying to read more Greek, and now have the UBS New Testament Reader's Edition, which is a great help. My own slight complaint are the sub-titles in English (!). For the record, contra Wes Wood above, the textual notes, though fairly few, d...
