Re: Mark 11:3 ἀποστέλλει

Why the use of the present ἀποστέλλει and not future ἀποστελεῖ? ...ἐίπατε Ὁ κύριος αὐτοῦ χρείαν ἔχει, καὶ εὐθὺς αὐτὸν ἀποστέλλει πάλιν ὧδε. Aorist Imperative ...ἐρεῖτε ὅτι Ὁ κύριος αὐτῶν χρείαν ἔχει· εὐθὺς δὲ ἀποστελεῖ αὐτούς. Future Might it not be due to the alternative uses of the Imperative. Se...

... I can see how οἶδα is stative, but could γινώσκω be eventive, as in "come to know"?...If we follow Rijksbaron's analysis, then the question really devolves to whether γινώσκω is terminative/telic or stative.

Re: Force of the perfect ἐγνώκαμεν in 1 John 2:3

Greek has a bunch of different words for "know." I can see how οἶδα is stative, but could γινώσκω be eventive, as in "come to know"? BDAG γινώσκω... "This verb is variously nuanced in contexts relating to familiarity acquired through experience or association with pers. or thing." 6 To have come to...

Re: Romans 4:18 - παρ’ ἐλπίδα ἐπ’ ἐλπίδι

I'd like to know the function of the prepositions in that phrase. Is there a particularly good article to look at? Robertson comments: “The notion of comparison may glide over into that of opposition very easily….Ro. 4:18, παρ’ ἐλπίδα ἐπ’ ἐλπίδι, where both prepositions answer over to each other, ‘...

Re: Aorist participle with μὲν + οὖν in Acts 17:30

The relative time significance of the aorist participle ὑπεριδὼν to the main verb παραγγέλλει is complicated by the fact that vs. 30 begins with the combination of μὲν οὖν. The μὲν somehow relates the immediate clause to the subsequent clause, but we should be careful not to assume that the μὲν imp...

Re: John 8:25

BDF § 300(2)(b) wrote: (b) In the LXX this ὅ τι always renders interrogative pronouns meaning ‘why’ such as מָה, לָמָּה, מַדּוּעַ. Thank you, Stephen, for clarifying that statement. As I noted in my opening post: "Though Blass feels the use of ὄτι as a direct interrogative is “quite incredible”, Ro...

Re: Gal 1:22 τῷ προσώπῳ

Anyway 2 Cor 12:2-3 has a good example where the presence or absence of the article does not have any semantic significance. BDF §255 “The article can be omitted in prepositional phrases. (formulae from the earlier anarthrous stage of the language.” If correct, then the reason for its absence may b...

David! I think there's an intentional pun in that sentence! But I don't think I could prove it.;)
