Re: Luke 12:36 - Minuscule 157

I think the answer lies in BDF §266 and Basil L. Gildersleeve's Syntax of Classical Greek 575-6 , with the understanding "the [time] when", thus: And you, [be] like people who are waiting for their master, for [the time] when he returns from the wedding feast, so that after he comes and knocks, they...

Re: Luke 12:36 - Minuscule 157

1. Possible, but unlikely, I think I think the dative would be necessary there to express time, so would expect τῷ. At that time I think -ει and -αι would be pronounced identically, so there's that, but it's harder to think of two errors here (though not impossible). It could be that το is an error...

Luke 12:36 - Minuscule 157

Traditional text of Luke 12:36: καὶ ὑμεῖς ὅμοιοι ἀνθρώποις προσδεχομένοις τὸν κύριον ἑαυτῶν πότε ἀναλύσῃ ἐκ τῶν γάμων, ἵνα ἐλθόντος καὶ κρούσαντος εὐθέως ἀνοίξωσιν αὐτῷ. Minuscule 157 has two variants here, reading (var. in bold): καὶ ὑμεῖς ὅμοιοι ἀνθρώποις προσδεχομένοις τὸν κύριον ἑαυτῶν, τὸ πότε ...

Re: Are "Yeshu" and "Yeshua" translated identically in Greek as "Jesus"?

Thank you for the informative reply! Looks like I'm off to study declension. You were very helpful! (It's my first foray into Greek, yes. I've dabbled in Hebrew for some time now.) No trouble :) If you're not aware of it already, there is a b-hebrew forum where questions like this may get answered ...

Re: Are "Yeshu" and "Yeshua" translated identically in Greek as "Jesus"?

There are three forms of Yeshua I would know to exist in Hebrew; Yehoshua, Yeshua, and Yeshu. I know that Yehoshua is translated in the Septuagint as Iesous, identical to Jesus in NT Koine. Would Yeshu have been translated the same way? The first thing is to learn the difference between translation...

Re: Does Mark 13:14 sync best with the Hebrew or Greek of Daniel 9:27?

Well the only thing of relevance in Mark 13:14 is τὸ βδέλυγμα τῆς ἐρημώσεως: Ὅταν δὲ ἴδητε τὸ βδέλυγμα τῆς ἐρημώσεως ἑστηκότα ὅπου οὐ δεῖ, ὁ ἀναγινώσκων νοείτω, τότε οἱ ἐν τῇ Ἰουδαίᾳ φευγέτωσαν εἰς τὰ ὄρη As for whether τὸ βδέλυγμα τῆς ἐρημώσεως is better served from either the Hebrew or the LXX, it...

Re: 2 Cor 1:3 articulation within a Granville-Sharp construction

Most G-S constructions don't have modifiers so these two are the clearest. There are possible counter-examples like Heb 3:1 τὸν άπόστολον καὶ άρχιερέα τῆς ὁμολογίας ἡμῶν Ἰησοῦν, but this could be a parsing issue. Is this because both substantives don't have modifiers, thus the only modifier in a G-...

Or did Stephen mean τής Μαρίας ~ Ιάκωβου?
Yeah, I was thinking this.

Only pattern with these two are the genitives are either articular or anarthrous if the governing substantive is also (θεὸς/αδελφός), hence Stephen's question.

Are there any other places with this pattern, or just these two?

Re: Deut 6:8 Translation Issue

My question: is there similar Hebrew word to or something that can be done with the vowel pointing of  לְטֹטָפֹ֖ת To explain the renderings of the versions, or are we likely looking at a different Vorlage altogether? I don't think we're looking at different Vorlage s here, as the parallel passage i...
