Re: John 17:3 ινα + subjunctive = to an infinitive?

Stephen et al, My main question is how can a subjunctive function as an indicative? Ινα γινωσκωσιν is dubious when it should be factual to make sense of the propositional statement. But since ινα + subjunctive is evidently equal to the infinitive the problem is resolved. But I want to know how this ...

John 17:3 ινα + subjunctive = to an infinitive?

I'm wrestling with John 17:3. Specifically the ἵνα clause. It seems ἵνα γινώσκωσιν substitutes for an infinitive, which BDAG confirms, but how? John 17:3 αὕτη δέ ἐστιν ἡ αἰώνιος ζωὴ ἵνα γινώσκωσιν σὲ τὸν μόνον ἀληθινὸν θεὸν καὶ ὃν ἀπέστειλας Ἰησοῦν Χριστόν. BDAG: e. ἵνα can also take the place of th...

Ephesians 2:6

Eph. 2:6 καὶ συνήγειρεν καὶ συνεκάθισεν ἐν τοῖς ἐπουρανίοις ἐν Χριστῷ Ἰησοῦ,

Is it possible that the two aorist verbs in Ephesians 2:6 are future referring?

Re: The meaning of silence in Koine Greek.

Stephen, I'll disturb the sound of silence so far given to your post. Regarding your example of Jesus keeping silent before Caiaphus likely you already know that all Jesus had to do was keep quiet and he wouldn't be found guilty since they couldn't get their witnesses against him to agree. No doubt ...

Default Verb Form in Greek Aspect

How are unmarked verb forms determined when considering aspect? In narratives the aorist is the default form. Is the narrative default form how we determine markedness? Or is it by individual usage of verbs? That is a particular verb is usually used in the present tense form and so when we see it us...

Re: Formation of Words with the Preposition Συν

Vlad, You may find these comments from NIDNTTE under the entry τέλος to be of interest: "...Among the rabbis, the eschat. use of קֵץ (Dan 8:19 et al., where the OG uses συντέλεια) is taken up. It refers chiefly to the days of the Messiah’s coming, which were ordained before the end of the world (cf....
