Re: Greek Composition 4x4 Challenge

I always remember the comments of my friend who was thrown onto the streets of Paris and required to communicate in French after only a brief and intense immersion program. He said the emotional experience was more than he had bargained for, and he couldn't decide whether he felt more like a blather...

Re: Greek Composition 4x4 Challenge

I was confused by the term "Gingrich definitions" .... Sorry. I was using BibleWorks notation. The reference is to Shorter Lexicon of the Greek New Testament , F. Wilbur Gingrich, revised by Frederick W. Danker. It is described as "... a digest of the basic lexical information on New Testament word...

Re: Greek Composition 4x4 Challenge

Yes. It wouldn't be something like the "front of the shoulder"*.
I don't know, man. Have you seen some of those dudes in the international beard growing contests?

πρόσωμον is a typo for πρόσωπον, right?

Re: Greek Composition 4x4 Challenge

Exile ἐκεῖνος ὁ κατάξας λαὸς κατὰ στοῖχον ἤγετο κατὰ ἀνατολὰς περιπατοῦντες καὶ κλαίοντες. Notes: I think κατάγνυμι (κατάξας) can be used in this context. ... Are you trying to say a "broken"? That might require a passive. Yes, of course. You're right. Thank you. :oops: What I wanted to say was: ἐκ...

Re: Greek Composition 4x4 Challenge

Four more words; διάφορος, κατάγνυμι, κείρω, πρόσκαιρος. Exile ἐκεῖνος ὁ κατάξας λαὸς κατὰ στοῖχον ἤγετο κατὰ ἀνατολὰς περιπατοῦντες καὶ κλαίοντες. αἱ γυναῖκες αἱ κεκαρμέναι καὶ δυσπινής ἐπείραζον σῶσαι τὰ τέκνα αὐτῶν οἱ δὲ ἄνδρες αὐτῶν κλαίοντες καὶ πενθοῦντες ἀδιαλείπτως περιεπάτουν. ἀπὸ τοῦ νῦν ...

Re: Rev.12:4 Buried stars or impact craters?

In the language of the very visual physical description that would be read by some symbolically, would the "stars" reach the earth, make craters or end up buried? If the language is taken as symbolic and metaphorical, then your question is nonsensical. It is like saying. "The political campaign is ...

Re: Rev.12:4 Buried stars or impact craters?

It`s impossible to talk about these symbols in concrete terms without first deciding what they represent. What do these symbols represent? Now there's a question that's been asked a few times over the centuries! ;=> As I said, I make the ἀστέρες of 12:4 to be the spiritual followers of ὁ δράκων μέγ...

Re: Rev.12:4 Buried stars or impact craters?

In this verse, the stone presumably sunk under the waters of the sea: Καὶ ἦρεν εἷς ἄγγελος ἰσχυρὸς λίθον ὡς μύλον μέγαν, καὶ ἔβαλεν εἰς τὴν θάλασσαν. Does the same assumption hold true for this verse, that the stars ended up covered by the earth? Καὶ ἡ οὐρὰ αὐτοῦ σύρει τὸ τρίτον τῶν ἀστέρων τοῦ οὐρ...
