Re: Κύριος

David, You at first said that κυριος had nothing to do with Yahweh and now in your latest post you indicate that it is obvious that κυριος is a substitute for God's name. Jonathan rightly corrected me for saying that BDAG indicates that it is a substitute when in fact it uses "replacement". Do you i...

Re: Κύριος

Thank you David for the link to the archives but my question is one of semantic range and usage which is entirely proper for B-Greek. BDAG comments on the connection of κυριος with Yahweh and my question is a proper one. Respectfully, I submit that it is you, David that are bringing problems of theo...

Re: Κύριος

David,
Thank you for your reply but I find it dismissive and unhelpful. I was also given to understand that this topic was welcome as per Jonathan Robie. Have I posed my question improperly?

Κύριος

BDAG under κύριος II (2) (b) says: "of transcendent beings - α as a designation of God (for this custom ...s.(ee)...LXX (where it freq. replaces the name Yahweh in the MT) Without the art. like a personal name..." When we encounter LXX passages in the NT that have κύριος as a replacement for Yahweh ...

Re: Jehovah’s Witnesses and 2 Corinthians 3:17.

The first definition in BDAG for κυριος is the more common definition of lord, master or owner but the second one notes that κυριος is a substitute for the Tetragrammaton. It also points out that κυριος is used in connection with Jesus and that it is also nearly equivalent of a personal name. It see...

Re: Convertible Propositions

David,

I guess what I'm saying is that the subject is grammaticalized and explicit in all finite verbs except for 3rd person singular linking verbs. I probably shouldn't have used the word predicate in my previous post.

Convertible Propositions

It just occurred to me that likely only 3rd persons singular linking verbs can ever create convertible propositions. 2nd person singular construction linking verbs would always have a the grammatical "you" as an integral part of the predicate. Does that make sense?

Re: Attributives

Scott, where did you get your "example" above from? It seems incorrect. I expected a speech to come after "λεγων" but found none, so should you have used "λαλων"? David, I pulled it directly from Mounce at section 29.6-7. "The man speaking to the crowd is my teacher." My Middle Liddell indicates th...

Re: Attributives

Stephen, I'd say that a participial adjective has two functions, attributive (if it functions as an adjective) and substantival (if it functions as a noun). Ο άνθρωπος ο λεγων τω οχλω εστιν ο διδάσκαλος μου. Here the participial adjective fits in the pattern of the 2nd attributive position. The subs...

Re: Attributives

The prescriptive rules and meta-language have in the past caused my eyes to glaze over and so I gave little thought to the matter until just recently. As I have pointed out a few posts back my observation may seem obvious. The complicated fashion in which this matter his handled by the grammars seem...
