Comparatives

Is there an article or list that lists out all of the comparatives in Koine Greek with their meanings? Not just for the NT, but for the entire language in general - for Koine Greek?

The Pluperfect

I've done a search and I can't find any posts that were just about the pluperfect on the site. I've seen different things about the pluperfect. Most of them contradictory. I'm wondering if someone could explain the proper understanding of the pluperfect, and grammatically how it works and how the ve...

Conjugation of ποιέω: ἐποίησα

ἐποίησα --> Verb, from ποιέω: Aorist Active Indicative 1st Person Singular. I'm interested in knowing if there is a paradigm chart out there on ποιέω. But also, and more importantly, I'm asking for help in understanding why ποιέω is conjugated so weirdly in this form (ἐποίησα). The Aorist part makes...

The antecedent of this personal pronoun in John 7:17?

John 7:17 ἐάν τις θέλῃ τὸ θέλημα αὐτοῦ ποιεῖν, γνώσεται περὶ τῆς διδαχῆς πότερον ἐκ τοῦ θεοῦ ἐστιν ἢ ἐγὼ ἀπ’ ἐμαυτοῦ λαλῶ. So, I know already what the response to this question would be. It would be something along the lines of "the context suggests αὐτοῦ refers to τοῦ πέμψαντός με (previous verse) ...

Conjugation of μεταβαίνω: (particularly) Μετάβηθι

I'm not concerned with the meaning of this word in the context of where it occurs. I think that it is very understandable once you realize its parsing. I'm concerned with how it is conjugated/inflected to become Μετάβηθι... What in Μετάβηθι makes it Aor Act Imp 2nd Sing ? When I first saw this I kne...

The Negative particles: ου and μη

After reading an article (http://www.galaxie.com/article/fm22-2-05) on the negative particles, and then trying to apply that understanding while reading the NT, I've realized that there are many cases where this understanding doesn't seem to make sense (a couple of examples include John 7:19, 23). H...

Re: 1 Corinthians 12:4-5 δὲ vs καὶ

Better to focus on learning to read greek. The better one learns to understand Greek, the better one understands what Steven and others are doing in DA. I agree... I feel like this is essential to learning to read Greek... I can't say that i'm an authority on this, but my philosophy is that no tran...

Re: 1 Corinthians 12:4-5 δὲ vs καὶ

Hi Phillip, Instead of trying to use the terminology in the grammar I'll try to restate what I see going on here in terms of sets. I would view δἐ here introducing a comment on a set, whereas καἰ is adding another member to the same set or potentially adding larger sets together. Set A Set A1: 4 Δι...

Re: 1 Corinthians 12:4-5 δὲ vs καὶ

Also, on page 21, he says "καί is unmarked for development. There may or may not be one present with καί. The writer has chosen not to indicate one way or the other if καί is used." Is there a development in the second καί in verse 5? Any explanation on these issues in general would be greatly appre...

1 Corinthians 12:4-5 δὲ vs καὶ

Section in context: "καὶ οὐδεὶς δύναται εἰπεῖν, Κύριος Ἰησοῦς, εἰ μὴ ἐν πνεύματι ἁγίῳ. 4 ∆ιαιρέσεις δὲ χαρισμάτων εἰσίν, τὸ δὲ αὐτὸ πνεῦμα· 5 καὶ διαιρέσεις διακονιῶν εἰσιν, καὶ ὁ αὐτὸς κύριος· 6 καὶ διαιρέσεις ἐνεργημάτων εἰσίν, ὁ δὲ αὐτὸς θεὸς ὁ ἐνεργῶν τὰ πάντα ἐν πᾶσιν. 7 ἑκάστῳ δὲ δίδοται ἡ φαν...
