Re: Two Books on Verbal Aspect

The title is deceptive because it appears to only be about the morphology of Greek in Revelation , but that's not quite the case. In order for Mussies to discuss the morphology of Revelation, he must first provide a thorough and comprehensive semantic-morphological description of the language in ge...

Re: Two Books on Verbal Aspect

A final book that doesn't get enough attention is Gerhard Mussies The Morphology of Koine Greek which covers all of the semantic issues discussed in these other volumes and is one of the best grammatical monographs I've read on Koine Greek. Is that this book? The Morphology of Koine Greek As Used i...

Re: Best Greek NT Commentaries

Another of my favorites is the Hermeneia series. An older set would be the Expositor's Greek Testament. There is also Robertson's Word Pictures. And don't forget the International Critical Commentary (ICC). The Expositor's Greek Testament is available online . I wish there were a free version for w...

Re: Best Greek NT Commentaries

I'd love to hear about favorite commentaries for each individual book. Each series I have used is better for some books than for others. I like Swete's The Apocalypse of St. John: the Greek text with introduction notes and indices , available free on the Internet. He also did a similar one for Mark,...

Re: Please critique my theory of

Do we normally find ἁμαρτία with a verb like ποιέω? Does ποιεῖν ἁμαρτίαν mean "to commit sin"? I think it can. Isn't ἁμαρτίαν ἐποίησα in 2 Cor 11:7 an example of that? But as you yourself point out, this isn't what's going on in 2 Cor 5:21. I think the structure of these two verses looks similar on...

Re: Please critique my theory of

As background, I point out a similar Pauline construction a few chapters later in the same letter: Ἢ ἁμαρτίαν ἐποίησα ἐμαυτὸν ταπεινῶν ἵνα ὑμεῖς ὑψωθῆτε, ὅτι δωρεὰν τὸ τοῦ θεοῦ εὐαγγέλιον εὐηγγελισάμην ὑμῖν; Could you line this out, as you did for the other text, and say how you interpret the struc...

Re: Please critique my theory of

I'm not sure if I was understood concerning what my theory is, so let me be more clear... This is a question, not a statement: τὸν μὴ γνόντα ἁμαρτίαν <-- the subject - God ὑπὲρ ἡμῶν <-- "concerning us" ἁμαρτίαν ἐποίησεν <-- the action... "commited an offense" ἵνα ἡμεῖς γενώμεθα <--in order that we ...

Re: Please critique my theory of

What Barry said. Let's line this out by clause (I often do this first if a text is hard for me): τὸν μὴ γνόντα ἁμαρτίαν ὑπὲρ ἡμῶν ἁμαρτίαν ἐποίησεν, ἵνα ἡμεῖς γενώμεθα δικαιοσύνη θεοῦ ἐν αὐτῷ. And correlate it with what Barry said: The first ἁμαρτίαν is clearly the direct object of the participle Th...

Re: Please critique my theory of

Hi Bill,

Could you please cite the Greek and say more about how you understand the Greek text, instead of just supplying a translation?

Re: "Unable to allocate memory for pool" error - fixed?

It's looking good to me again now too. I hate intermittent errors!
