Re: John 2:16 καὶ τοῖς τὰς περιστερὰς πωλοῦσιν εἶπεν·

What exactly are the different nuances? In context, τοῖς τὰς περιστερὰς πωλοῦσιν is preferred because in 2:14 John has introduced a list βόας καὶ πρόβατα καὶ περιστερὰς καὶ τοὺς κερματιστὰς καθημένους, in 2:15 he deals with all of them except for the doves, to which he turns in 2:16. Fronting somet...

Re: John 2:16 καὶ τοῖς τὰς περιστερὰς πωλοῦσιν εἶπεν·

It's number 1. The πωλοῦσιν is the dative participle in this case. Hello. Thanks for your reply Jason. So τοῖς goes with πωλοῦσιν because they are of the same case number and gender, and the noun sandwich construction is just something that is possible in the language? It's because participles func...

Re: John 2:22 Jesus said the word, or the word and the writing?

Thank you for your responses.

I'm wondering though is there any way to tell objectively where to draw the line for dependent clauses?

John 3:2 Ῥαββί (רַבִּי) and διδάσκαλος

John 3:2 οὗτος ἦλθεν πρὸς αὐτὸν νυκτὸς καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ· Ῥαββί, οἴδαμεν ὅτι ἀπὸ θεοῦ ἐλήλυθας διδάσκαλος· οὐδεὶς γὰρ ⸂δύναται ταῦτα τὰ σημεῖα⸃ ποιεῖν ἃ σὺ ποιεῖς, ἐὰν μὴ ᾖ ὁ θεὸς μετ’ αὐτοῦ. I'm kind of perplexed. Ῥαββί is just the transliterated form of the Hebrew רַבִּי, which means διδάσκαλος. This...

Re: ἄρτι vs νῦν

But why would there be two different words that mean exactly the same thing? Surely there is a slightly different meaning? Why wouldn't an author just use one of them as opposed to using them in different places in the same book to describe things? I can only say that this happens in Hebrew, where ...

Re: ἄρτι vs νῦν

I'm not sure that they are exactly interchangeable, but I don't know if they are different, and if they are, I don't know exactly what the difference is. There was a thread on this here: https://www.ibiblio.org/bgreek/forum/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=661 It's easy to do a quick search, but analyzing resu...

Re: κερματιστής vs κολλυβιστής

Both of these words are translated as "money changers". But clearly there must be some slight difference in the literal meaning. Is it safe to say that κερματιστής refers to one who handles κερμα (coins) while κολλυβιστής is literally "money changer"? I think the two words for money changer are jus...
