Word Order in Mat 16,18

Dear Friends,
in Mat 16,18 it reads:
καὶ ἐπὶ ταύτῃ τῇ πέτρᾳ οἰκοδομήσω μου τὴν ἐκκλησίαν

Why is μου fronted and placed before τὴν ἐκκλησίαν ? Can we find this feature elsewhere and how can we name it ?
Thank you for your help !
Yours

Re: Acts 13:48 - Subordinate Clause

Dear Friends,
ἐπίστευσαν belongs to the main clause and is the predicate, followed by a subordinate clause that describes the already beliving gentiles as such being appointed to eternal life. I'd say, that belive is forfronted and the appointment is the result of it. Right ?

Re: Gender of EKEINOS in Joh 16,13

Ok, I understand, Dr. Conrad. What do you think of this explantion: “Sometimes the demonstrative pronoun will agree with the natural gender rather than the grammatical gender. For example, the masculine pronoun EKEINOS is used in John 14,26 and 16,13-14 to refer to the neuter noun PNEUMA to emphasiz...

Gender of EKEINOS in Joh 16,13

Dear Friends of Greek,

in John 16,13 it reads: Ὅταν δὲ ἔλθῃ ἐκεῖνος, τὸ πνεῦμα τῆς ἀληθείας, ὁδηγήσει ὑμᾶς εἰς πᾶσαν τὴν ἀλήθειαν·

πνεῦμα is an Apposition to ἐκεῖνος, but why does the Gender (mask. - neuter) not agree ?

Thank you for a clarification !
Yours

Re: Two-termination Adjective in Tit 2,5?

Dear Stephen, very interesting ! Thank you ! You wrote: >Words like κακοῦργον come to mind. The difference between KAKOURGOS and OIKOURGOS (NA in Tit 2,5) seems to be that the first part of the word is once an adjective (KAKOS) and once a Noun (OIKOS). Maybe this base offers both possibilities. Your...

Re: Two-termination Adjective in Tit 2,5?

Dear Stephen, is it clear at all that this word is a adjective or maybe rather a noun? One German translation renders "good housekeepers". As you wrote: "I think the formation is οἶκος + ἔργον > *οἰκοεργός > οἰκουργός" Are there other analog neologisms that use "ergon" as base ? I wrote: "It's not c...
