Re: John 14:30

οὐκέτι πολλὰ λαλήσω μεθ’ ὑμῶν, ἔρχεται γὰρ ὁ τοῦ κόσμου ἄρχων· καὶ ἐν ἐμοὶ οὐκ ἔχει οὐδέν. Seems to me he's saying that he doesn't have much more to speak with his disciples, since his time is limited and the ruler of the world (that is, Satan) was coming — to bring worldly judgment on him. Althoug...

Re: Matthew 5:3a

I've just looked through the Control Panel, and I see no option for changing my username. I don't think this is within a registered user's permissions. If you want it to be, could you check and see if you can change it? I know that on my forum, users cannot change their usernames but must get the a...

Re: Matthew 5:3a

χαίρετε I first joined B-Greek around the year 2000. I was a student at Ozark Christian College. Took three years of Greek there, in which we used Mounce and the Erasmian pronunciation. We translated 1 John, the Gospel of John and several other shorter texts while in college. Always felt like my Gre...

Re: Mt 1:19 AUTHN objcet or subject

AUTHN as an object, yes, it would be the one for the verb PARADEIGMATISAI rather than QELWN (I was looking the sentence as if it were in English). After reading the book review article mentioned in the reference, it dawned to me that it was not much about disgrace to herself. (Once the marriage ple...

Re: John 14:30

Is the double negative οὐκ ἔχει οὐδέν functionally euqivalent to ἔχει οὐδέν? AS I understand it, a "double negative" like this serves to strengthen the force of the negative idea. In other words, something like "he has NOTHING in me." But as Carl said, as you read in the NT, this kind of thing is f...

Re: Matthew 5:3a

When the meaning is not clear it is rarely a grammatical problem, but rather a problem with a literal rendering. Although the Greek word πτωχοὶ basically means "poor", the text was first spoken in Hebrew, and the corresponding Hebrew word is much wider in its usage. It can describe a person who is ...

Re: John 14:30

Ancient Greek, like some other languages, tends to use the negating word (οὐ or μὴ) with a second negative adverb or pronoun. This is one of the structural features of ancient Greek usage that one learns when one works systematically through a beginning Greek textbook. One does not learn things lik...
