Re: Understanding names in Koine Greek

Kind of looks like Smyth says otherwise.

Textual variant in Jude 1:6 - αλυτοις

Hello fellow Greekers. I found that two codices in Jude 1:6, codices 33 and 2344, read: ...εἰς κρίσιν μεγάλης ἡμέρας δεσμοῖς αλυτοις και ἀϊδίοις ὑπὸ ζόφον τετήρηκεν· instead of ...εἰς κρίσιν μεγάλης ἡμέρας δεσμοῖς ἀϊδίοις ὑπὸ ζόφον τετήρηκεν· (NA28 text) I've checked BDAG, and a few other online lex...

Understanding names in Koine Greek

Hi. I've come across a certain translation of the NT that transliterates Πετρος as "Petros" into the english, and in every instance "Πετρος" occurs, regardless of the case/inflection, it is transliterated into english as "Petros" instead of Peter. My question is, was "Petros" really how we should un...

normally the use of an adjective for an abstract concept is in the neuter.
In that case, this is nominative, so, I guess it's likely referring to a black entity and not the mere quality of being black (blackness).

Re: Grammatical question about Barnabas 4:9.

Correction: Melas, not megas... 4:9 But I, wanting to be writing much (not as a teacher, but instead as it is being-proper for one who is loving to not be leaving in the dust anything from the things which we have), made-every-effort to be writing to you as an offscouring of you. For-this-reason, ma...

Grammatical question about Barnabas 4:9.

I have a question about "ο μελας" in Barnabas 4:9. ...ἵνα μὴ σχῇ παρείσδυσιν ὁ μέλας. Should it be translated as the "black one" or as "blackness"? Megas is an adjective, and I suppose the definite article would make it function substantively, but does the definite article limit it to only that? Cou...

Question about a reading in the NA28 Apparatus

Hello. I'm kind of new to using the NA28's apparatus so I may be wrong about this, but in the apparatus at John 7:8 there is a variant reading from the main text (οὔπω) which is from P66. However, there is a solid vertical line separating another variant from P66 listed (οὐδέπω)... I'm really confus...

The accusative form(s) of the personal pronoun εγω

Well, this is definitely a basic level question... I'm wondering why μὲ sometimes has an epsilon in front of it (ἐμὲ). I thought that it was because the preceding word ended in a consonant and adding the epsilon made it sound better when speaking the language (similar to the movable ν?)... but i've ...
