Re: Luke 6:27 εχθρους

Dear Jason, "The Goth" is the person (or one of the persons), that translated the Bible (or at least parts of it) into the Gothic Language, probably in the last quarter of the 4th century Common Era. A long time scholars were convinced that Ulfila (a Bishop of the Goths) had translated the bible, al...

Luke 6:27 εχθρους

Question on Luke 6:27 αγαπατε τους εχθρους υμων εχθρος = Adjective = a) passive meaning: being hated; b) active meaning : hating (LSJ, Passow, Pape) ο εχθρος = The enemy (noun) My problem with this word is, that the Goth took the noun in its adjectival meaning, so the Gothic bible here has: "the one...

Re: Nunn's Syntax of Attic Greek

My answer comes a bit late, but nevertheless:

It is a Book-on-Loan, because it is probably still under copyright. But at least You can use the book.

Re: Cataphoric use of Personal Pronouns

Dear Peng Huigo "Imagine vocally reading these verses to an audience unfamiliar with christian lore. As the words tumble on, and the listeners process them linearly, how would they construe that αὐτῶν? Note in this situation the influence of the αὐτῶν in v. 29." We should never forget: That was then...

Re: Cataphoric use of Personal Pronouns

Dear Peng Huiguo, according to Kittel (german Edition) Theologisches Wörterbuch, Volume 8 Lemma τελωνης, p. 101 the house of a Taxcollector was not clean (to Pharisees and probably to all Jews, incl. the γραμματεις), so it would be very uncommon for them to enter the house. The communication could h...

Re: Cataphoric use of Personal Pronouns

Thanks Barry, Is the cataphoric use of αυτος a very rare use of the personal pronoun? The Cambridge Grammar of Classical Greek 2019 states: Par. 29.7 "When used as a third-person pronoun, αυτός always refers back to someone or something introduced before (anaphoric use)" So, according to that Gramma...

In Luke 5:30 NA28 has και εγογγυζον οι φαρισαιοι και οι γραμματεις αυτων προς τους μαθητας αυτου λεγοντες δια τι μετα των τελωνων και αμαρτωλων εσθιετε και πινετε αυτων is refering to φαρισαιοι. But RP2005 has και εγογγυζον οι γραμματεις αυτων και οι φαρισαιοι προς τους μαθητας αυτου λεγοντες δια τι...
