Re: Tenses

Verses quoted by Constantine Campbell in Basics of Verbal Aspect in Biblical Greek could throw some light here (but not quite in the way he explained them). There is more than one school of thought among people applying modern linguistics to biblical Greek. Many here on B-Greek are more inclined to...

Re: Are ἀνά-κειμαι and κατά-κειμαι synonyms?

So they are practical synonyms in part of the semantic range, but otherwise differ quite a bit. Yes, I was thinking mostly about ἀνάκειμαι and κατάκειμαι in the context of dining. Invoking my inner root fallacy, I was wondering if there might be a subtle distinction analogous to "sit down" and "sit...

Re: περιβόλαιον in 1 Corinthians 11:15

If there is some metaphor for testicle, one would expect something more apposite like ball, stone, nut, etc., basically anything that looks like a testicle or can be hidden away. I hope this doesn't get conflated with another recent thread . I know someone must be desperate for something to present...

Are ἀνά-κειμαι and κατά-κειμαι synonyms?

Are ἀνά-κειμαι and κατά-κειμαι synonyms? Do the prefixes indicate any shade of difference in meaning? If they are synonyms in the Hellenistic period, was there a time that they had distinct meanings?

γλωσσόκομον - bag, box, or any container?

τινὲς γὰρ ἐδόκουν, ἐπεὶ τὸ γλωσσόκομον εἶχεν Ἰούδας, ὅτι λέγει αὐτῷ [ὁ] Ἰησοῦς, Ἀγόρασον ὧν χρείαν ἔχομεν εἰς τὴν ἑορτήν, ἢ τοῖς πτωχοῖς ἵνα τι δῷ. Louw & Nida confidently tell me this is a box: γλωσσόκομον: a box in which money was kept The UBS Translator's Handbook tells me it is a bag: Money bag...

Re: ὄφιν ἐν τῷ κόλπῳ τρέφειν

I didn't see anything close enough in the Fable itself.

But it seems to have a moral similar to a Latin text:
Compare the Roman proverb, 'you're nurturing a snake in your bosom' (Petronius, Satyricon 77).
Could it have been back-translated from a proverb found in that text?

John 13:23 ἦν ἀνακείμενος ... ἐν τῷ κόλπῳ τοῦ Ἰησοῦ

I have a question about ἦν ἀνακείμενος ... ἐν τῷ κόλπῳ τοῦ Ἰησοῦ in the following verse: ἦν ἀνακείμενος εἷς ἐκ τῶν μαθητῶν αὐτοῦ ἐν τῷ κόλπῳ τοῦ Ἰησοῦ, ὃν ἠγάπα ὁ Ἰησοῦς. Louw & Nida, seen through the lens of the Semantic Dictionary of Biblical Greek, explain the idiom thus: ἀνάκειμαι ἐν τῷ κόλπῳ (a...
