Re: Antecedant of LATREUO of Rev. 22:3

Barry, It seems to me that τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ τοῦ ἀρνίου acts as a single grammatical unit and serves specifically to modify ὁ θρόνος. To single out ἀρνίου breaking it out of its primary function in the noun phrase and elevating it to a subject seems odd to me. If anything the whole grammatical unit of το...

Re: Antecedant of LATREUO of Rev. 22:3

Barry, It seems to me that ἀρνίου forms a grammatical unit with θεοῦ in the noun phrase τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ τοῦ ἀρνίου which modifies ὁ θρόνος and does not serve to introduce a subject.Why would we look for an antecedent in a noun phrase in the genitive that acts as modifier to a noun? It seems to me both ...

Re: Romans 10:4, two nominative nouns

Ryan, The simplest sentences in language have a binary structure. That is they consist of a noun phrase (a noun phrase can be a single noun) functioning as a subject and a verb phrase (a verb phrase can be a single verb) functioning as a predicate. A predicate says, or predicates something about the...

Re: 2 Cor. 5:20

Makes one wonder how readers made out in those "dim, olden' days before editors and punctuators showed us how we ought to anatomize the text in order to make it read the way we think we'd like to read it. ;) Perhaps, therefore, the need for the encouragement from Paul to Timothy at 1Tim 4:13: " ......

Hermas 3.9.12.2 (Book 3, 9th Similitude, Chapter 12, Verse 2

Hermas 3.9.12.2 (Book 3, 9th Similitude, Chapter 12, Verse 2): "...ὁ μὲν υἱὸς τοῦ θεοῦ πάσης τῆς κτίσεως αὐτοῦ προγενέστερός ἐστιν, ὥστε σύμβουλον αὐτὸν γενέσθαι τῷ πατρὶ τῆς κτίσεως αὐτοῦ· διὰ τοῦτο καὶ παλαιὰ ἡ πέτρα..." It seems to me that γενέσθαι is connected to αὐτὸν as an adverbial accusative...

Re: Κύριος

Thank you Ken. Notable by its absence is any mention of the Tetragrammaton but Muraoka intended his work to supplement BDAG didn't he? So he is only filling in gaps that may exist. Is that right? I'll peruse (in the sense of thoroughly read) the entry. Thanks again.

Re: Κύριος

Also according to the oldest Christian MSS nomina sacra where used and not the symbol "kύριος." Since scribes did at times still use the full form kύριος, there appears to be a different pragmatical reason signaled to the reader when they came across a nomen sacrum. Whom the referent was did make a...

Re: Κύριος

David, BDAG gives a list of scriptures in the NT where κυριος appears with the article and then a list where it appears without the article. It seems to me that BDAG is indicating that the anarthrous κυριος is equivalent to a personal name. Would it be possible for someone to post the definition of ...

David, the difference would be between something like ΙΑΩ that could stand in or substitute for יהוה and κυριος which replaces the Tetragrammaton with something different.
