Re: Galatians 4:12-14 Γίνεσθε ὡς ἐγώ

The usual answer is that professional scribes can write small but less practiced people write big. Let me quote from the blog entry I pointed to: Further, there is very little unusual in the fact that the writing of Paul’s autographic subscription is larger than that of the professional scribe. Lar...

Re: Galatians 4:12-14 Γίνεσθε ὡς ἐγώ

Paul gives another hint in Galatians 6:11 Ἴδετε πηλίκοις ὑμῖν γράμμασιν ἔγραψα τῇ ἐμῇ χειρί. When he writes in his own hand, he does it in really big letters. Perhaps because he had problems with his eyes? Due to the discovery of manuscripts which do this, the general consensus is that it was done ...

Re: Galatians 4:12-14 Γίνεσθε ὡς ἐγώ

If you want to look at "the discourse unit as a whole", I think that might mean looking at Galatians 4:8-20, looking at just two verses does not really do that. In context, I think Romans 6:19 is talking about human limitations when it uses this phrase: ἐλευθερωθέντες δὲ ἀπὸ τῆς ἁμαρτίας ἐδουλώθητε ...

Ps 18/19 Εἰς τὸ τέλος· ψαλμὸς τῷ Δαυιδ.

I was surprised by the word τέλος here:
Ps 18 (LXX) wrote:Εἰς τὸ τέλος· ψαλμὸς τῷ Δαυιδ.
I initially assumed that Εἰς τὸ τέλος translates לַמְנַצֵּ֗חַ here:
Ps 19 (BHS) wrote:לַמְנַצֵּ֗חַ מִזְמ֥וֹר לְדָוִֽד׃
But can τέλος mean choirmaster? I mean, it can't, right? So what is going on here?

Is the fact that Ἱκανόν is neuter helpful, i.e., that it does not mean "the two swords are enough"?
Good point.

Luke 22:38 Ἱκανόν ἐστιν

I am having doubts about an interpretation of a text that I kind of like, but don't have evidence for. Can you help keep me honest, but also provide evidence if you have it? Here's the text: Καὶ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς, Ὅτε ἀπέστειλα ὑμᾶς ἄτερ βαλλαντίου καὶ πήρας καὶ ὑποδημάτων, μή τινος ὑστερήσατε; οἱ δὲ εἶπ...

Re: Case Frame Analysis

This is really useful data - I have Danove's data and am very impressed by it. It's cool to see this in Logos, and I like your article on this.

I do think it's important to make this more accessible. And a good lexicon, informed by case frame analysis, may be the ideal place to do this.

It occurs to me as I write that I may be venturing out of bounds by advertising. Perhaps I should check forum policies before posting. Well, yes, our rules do say you need to ask before advertising , and I would appreciate it if people would please do that. No advertisements or job-postings are all...

Re: Aorist indicative with future temporal reference

One might add that in the Dutch-authored Cambridge Grammar of Classical Greek [2017] time in the Greek indicative is presented matter-of-factly without doubt or quibble, 33:1-3. In the CGCC Bibliography, admittedly restricted rather than comprehensive and maximal, B. Fanning is listed with his 1990...
