Re: Jude 1:15

ἁμαρτωλός is being used substantively; ἀσεβής being the descriptive adjective (these "sinners" are ungodly).

ἁμαρτωλοὶ are the subject of the verb λαλέω.

So yes, whilst ἁμαρτωλός is an adjective per se, most (quite a lot at least) adjectives can be used substantively/as a noun.

Re: Heb 1:3 & the SBLGNT text

Or perhaps P46 adds a word, making it δι᾽ αὑτοῦ, and placing it in the next clause: Oh yes, absolutely an option. I was basing my comment on how the NA27 apparatus indicated the variant, which puts it down as an omission of the possessive, rather than addition of the preposition. This is mainly due...

Re: Needing Help with Erasmus Exemplar

The raised theta on παρθένον and παρθένου is surely not a correction but a deliberate abbreviation used by some scribes. Here is another example in GA 19: http://ntvmr.uni-muenster.de/community/modules/papyri/?site=INTF&image=30019/undefined/4240/10/339 I presume, given the reference to Mary, it co...

Re: Needing Help with Erasmus Exemplar

Thanks. However, I try to read the Greek NT daily (NA28 & UBS-5) and have no problem speed reading the minuscule type set. The modern Greek script used in the NA and UBS GNT's is set to be easily read after-all. We also benefit from the Greek letters not being in joined-up handwriting. Be willing t...

Re: Heb 1:3 & the SBLGNT text

So NA27 seems to be the best single source of variant readings? More than likely NA28 contains the same list. Unfortunately not at home to check on that. I would hazard a guess that the ECM of the Epistles will be the best (future) source, however if you go to http://ntvmr.uni-muenster.de/nt-transc...

Re: Heb 1:3 & the SBLGNT text

According to the NA27 apparatus, the following MS omit αὐτοῦ: P46 (Papyrus 46, 2nd-3rd Cent) 0243 (Aka Uncial 0121(b), 10th Cent) 6 (Minuscule 6, 13th Cent) 1739 (Minuscule 1739, 10th Cent) 1881* (Minuscule 1881 original reading, 14th Cent) pc (some other witnesses) I have confirmed that P46 does in...

Re: Why is λόγος consistently translated as "word"?

@RandallButh: is there a reason why the all-purpose prayer shifts from the 2nd person to the 3rd person? Reading that, I was expecting it to end בדברך ("through Your word") and not בדברו ("through His word").

Re: Ἱεροσόλυμα and ἱερός

No, Ἱεροσόλυμα is just the Greek transliteration of the Hebrew ירושלים. The beginning of the transliteration, Ἱερο-, has no correlation with any Greek word - it's just transliterated Hebrew in Greek characters.

Please differ to the advice given you in the other topic, Robin :)

Re: ἔνδοξος and εὐδόκησεν

What is a good source for LXX translation of Greek words to Hebrew word. "Study Light" website shows Hebrew מַחְמָד (machmad) translates to only ‑ ἔνδοξος . I do not know why it is not showing επιθυμία Because the "Study Light" website doesn't show that מַחְמָד "translates to only" ἔνδοξος, but mer...

Re: 1 Tim 1:7 - μὴ... μήτε

Hi Davis, Firstly, it's 1 Tim 1:7 not 3:7 (had me confused for a second or two), and it's best to understand the first μήτε as "either", giving, "Desiring to be teachers of the Law, yet not understanding either what they are saying or what they assert". Though there is no reason why the initial μήτε...
