Re: Logos 8 Academic Professional

With Accordance, would it be possible to generate a list of the uses in the NT and/or Septuagint, of a partcular lemma based on strongs# or other and if so what format would the list be in. There are online sites which feature pop-ups for say morphology but I don’t think pop-ups are very efficient ...

Re: What is the function of ἐν in Galatians 3:12?

The line of argument could be understood as "living in the law is living under a curse and Christ ransoms people out of the curse to live in him . I'm just saying, the idea that this is meant to be understood as a cognitive space "living in the law " is appealing at the level of the immediate Greek...

Re: 2 Cor 5:21 anarthrous nouns

τὸν μὴ γνόντα ἁμαρτίαν ὑπὲρ ἡμῶν ἁμαρτίαν ἐποίησεν, ἵνα ἡμεῖς γενώμεθα δικαιοσύνη θεοῦ ἐν αὐτῷ. τὸν μὴ γνόντα ἁμαρτίαν is very marked and introduces a topical frame for the whole verse. In the second line, ἡμεῖς is the topical frame for the purpose clause. I would like to avoid theology here, peopl...

Re: What is the function of ἐν in Galatians 3:12?

What does "by" suggest in that context? Probably better to ask what ἐν means in that context. Greek prepositions do not map cleanly onto English prepositions. How do you understand ἐν in these verses? Ὑμεῖς ἐστε τὸ ἅλας τῆς γῆς· ἐὰν δὲ τὸ ἅλας μωρανθῇ, ἐν τίνι ἁλισθήσεται; εἰς οὐδὲν ἰσχύει ἔτι εἰ μ...

Re: What is the function of ἐν in Galatians 3:12?

The first time I read that, I thought "by". I went and looked at translations, and several of them seem to translate this as "by". By obedience to the laws, he shall live.

Re: Has anyone tried to group NT texts by a commonality of writing style among disparate NT authors?

Wow! That is an awesome tool. That would absolutely be exactly what I'm seeking, but for koine. What a day we are living in! I think it could be used for Koine. The hardest part, really, is coming up with a measure and a statistical model for comparison. You can, say, compare even chapters to odd c...

Re: Has anyone tried to group NT texts by a commonality of writing style among disparate NT authors?

Has anyone tried to group NT texts by a commonality of writing style among disparate NT authors? Yes, I have seen that analysis done in a couple of different ways, but I do not have any reference handy. The last one I remember seeing at SBL a few years ago was done based on syntax patterns. I was v...

Re: GOSPEL FRAGMENT OXYRHYNCHUS PAPYRUS №1224 (50-150 AD) Questions

"dated solely on the basis of paleography ... which I understand to be perhaps just a notch ahead of pseudoscience in terms of reliability. Hey Bill, may I quote you? :D Maybe in less blunt terms, I sort of share your opinion when all I find for a given papyrus is that it "was dated paleographicall...

Re: Koine majuscule letter stroke order, advice requested

Interesting! I don't know where to find these instructions, I would also be curious. I'd add this, though: given your goals, you should probably learn about wax tablets, too. I have not read any of these beyond a quick browse, but they might be worth checking out: Greek Paleography: Introduction to ...

One other follow up question.

Can an adverb modify a participle?
Yes, and it can also modify an infinitive. Here's an example:
Matt.1.19 wrote:Ἰωσὴφ δὲ ὁ ἀνὴρ αὐτῆς, δίκαιος ὢν καὶ μὴ θέλων αὐτὴν δειγματίσαι, ἐβουλήθη λάθρᾳ ἀπολῦσαι αὐτήν.
