Re: Greek Grammars on the Articulation of Prepositional Objects

I agree with Stephen on pretty much all about Siebenthal. It's somewhat a disappointment because it doesn't seem to give a thought to possible linguistic explanations to many phenomena. Maybe there's just not enough knowledge about the article that he could say something which isn't unsure or specul...

Re: Sad news about ... bible software in general.

I would prefer to see open module formats that can be used with multiple vendors' tools. OSIS is already such format, and the text modules can be encrypted. The Open Source SWORD library and all the applications using it could use those modules. But for some reason the publishers of texts don't wan...

Re: Luther's xlation of αιων/αιωνιος

He said he tried hard to change John 3.16 to something like "For God loved the world in this way..." ESV: "For God so loved the world" It was hardly about "world" but rather "so". This is a well known problem in some translations, it happens to be the same problem in Finnish, too. "So" may be under...

Re: Abbott-Smith note on γινώσκω vs οἶδα

For what it's worth... In Finnish we have two words, "tietää" and "tuntea". "Tietää" usually means "to know, have knowledge about" (cognitively). For example in "I know how it goes", "I knew this would happen", "I know elephants are animals", "I know the answer" etc. "Tuntea" means usually "to feel"...

Re: “Pleophorical” Hendiadys

"Emeralds are pleophoric, meaning they display different colours in different directions." (http://www.gemcash.ca/emerald_gem_cash.html)

Maybe "multicolored"?

EDIT: or "being able to carry several shades"

Snark comment: Why is it that nobody outside of a narrow range of NT people ever talk about Granville Sharp?
Snark answer: because they don't have any doctrine which they would defend with that.

ἀδελφός is clearly appositional to the already articular ὁ υἱός, so no need to repeat the article.
Or did Stephen mean τής Μαρίας ~ Ιάκωβου?
