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...

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?

Suggestion for the forum: Textual Criticism

Hi. There should really be a section on the forum just for textual criticism pertaining to Biblical Greek. I think it would be good and relevant to have more discussion about textual variants and anything pertaining to TC of the text. It is something that I personally feel is a fundamental and nonav...

γεγραμμένον --> Verb: Perfect Passive Participle Nominative Singular Neuter

Hi. I have a couple of questions about γεγραμμένον. How can γεγραμμένον best be translated to fully incorporate its meaning, and how can it be explained to fully understand its significance as a perfect passive participle?

John 2:16 καὶ τοῖς τὰς περιστερὰς πωλοῦσιν εἶπεν·

John 2:16 καὶ τοῖς τὰς περιστερὰς πωλοῦσιν εἶπεν·... I would like to know if I am understanding this construction properly or not. There are two ways I'm looking at this, but I'm not sure which is correct... Explanation 1) 1. It looks like τοῖς goes with the participle πωλοῦσιν (which is functioning...

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?

Conjugation of φέρω: ἤνεγκαν, ἠνέχθη, etc?

Some of the forms of φέρω seem totally unrelated to φέρω in just about every visual way. Is there any way to explain why φέρω looks so different in these forms?
