Oecumenius - Ad Thess 457.7ff

Dear Friends, I have some difficulties in understanding part of the following quote: "Τί οὖν, εἴποι τις ὡς πρὸς τὴν δευτέραν ἐξήγησιν, μερικὴ ἔσται ἡ ἀνάστασις, ὡς τῶν ἀπίστων μὴ ἀνισταμένων; οὐ τοῦτο, ἀλλ᾽ ὅτι πάντες μὲν ἀναστήσονται, οὐ πάντες δὲ ἀχθήσονται• τὸ γὰρ ἀχθῆναι τὴν μετὰ τιμῆς πανταχόθε...

Re: Epiphanius, Haer 2.137.6

Dear Dr. Conrad, the passage is perfectly clear now ! Thank you so much ! Wenn wir nur so gut Deutsch schreiben vermöchten wie Sie Englisch schreiben, so wären wir wohl μακάριοι Sehr gut ! You're almost μακάριος ! I assume these genitive noun + participle constructions really are genitive absolutes ...

Re: Epiphanius, Haer 2.137.6

Ok, thank you ! I think you're right, Ken ! I better should have used a lexicon....

Epiphanius, Haer 2.137.6

Dear Friends, in Epiphanius, Haer 2.137.6 it reads: Καὶ ἐν τούτῳ σοι πολλὴ αἰσχύνη, ὦ Μαρκίων, τοῦ χαρακτῆρος τῆς ἀληθείας σῳζομένου καὶ τῆς παρεκτομῆς τῶν κλεμμάτων σου εὑρισκομένης ἀπὸ τοῦ ἀντιγράφου τοῦ κατὰ Λουκᾶν εὐαγγελίου, τῶν τόπων εὑρισκομένων καὶ τῶν παρὰ σοῦ ἀφαιρεθέντων ἐλεγχομένων. I'd ...

Re: John 2,24 αὐτὸν

Dear Dr. Conrad,
I thought αὑτόν was an Attic form and not common in Koine Greek.
Yours

Re: John 2,24 αὐτὸν

Dear Dr. Conrad,

thank you for this clarification ! What do you think of the Spiritus Asper Westcott/Hort used in Joh 2,24: αὑτὸν (hAUTON)?

Thank you again !

Yours

John 2,24 αὐτὸν

Friends,

in John 2,24 we read: αὐτὸς δὲ Ἰησοῦς οὐκ ἐπίστευεν αὐτὸν αὐτοῖς διὰ τὸ αὐτὸν γινώσκειν πάντας (Nestle-Aland)

How should we translate αὐτὸν here ? For "himself" I'd expect the reflexive form hEAUTON (as the Byz text reads).

Thank you !
Peter, Germany

Re: Joh 1,18 - force of the present tense of ὢν

Dear Jason, thank you - this was helpful for me ! Prof. Conrad wrote: to indicate existence ongoing from the past into the present I think this statement makes perfect sense. That's why I wrote [not] as a reference to the past only Grammar alone won't tell us, when Jesus Christ went to be with the f...

Re: Joh 1,18 - force of the present tense of ὢν

Why is that the best way to understand it? You might say that I'm asking that question rhetorically, because resolving a question like this really does require careful consideration of the context in John's gospel -- and there are lots of assumptions that are necessarily involved in this but that c...

Re: Joh 1,18 - force of the present tense of ὢν

Thank you, Prof. Conrad ! After thinking of your answer for some time, my impression is that ὢν shouldn't be translated as past tense (he was). The best way to understand it seems to me to take the time reference as coincidental to the point of writing the gospel. At this time Jesus is back in Heave...
