Re: Philippians 3:21

τοῦ δύνασθαι... καὶ ὑποτάξαι... No? Anyway you had instinctively "sharpened" it when you placed "ὑποτάξαι complementary to δύνασθαι", but I would say "equivalent" instead of "complementary". No. You might want to read up on Sharp's rule and precisely what it covered -- the article here by Wallace s...

Viewing καί as connective here is ok and presents an occasion to apply Sharp's rule.
How would "Sharp's rule" apply here?

Re: The discursive use of και

Exactly, Barry. However, ἡ συνεκλεκτὴ is often read as a compound noun, the church in Babylon, rather than a single common noun equivalent to Μαρκος. And Daniel, my query is not with the singular verb, but with the two joined nominatives. I concur that they are of equivalent discursive weight, but ...

I thought about becoming my own lexicographer. A worthy project for sure but .... Hmmm....
Serious linguists I have known read tons of primary sources. Don't rely on Lexicons.
I would say trust but verify. Serious lexicographers have also read tons of primary sources.

Re: Why does apeiros take genitive

Hello Stirling Bartholomew and all, Thank you. Perhaps I was not being clear. I was not making judgments, but just stating what my intuition led me to. I know it is correct to use the genitive. I am just wondering what kind of genitive it is, such as genitive of reference, ablative, etc. and the un...

Re: The discursive use of και

I haven't read Levinsohn and don't remember the language ("of equivalent value") from Runge, but I suspect it means that καἰ normally connects the same sorts of things, such as two nouns, or two phrases, or two clauses, etc. For example: ἀνὴρ καὶ γυνή, not ἀνὴρ καὶ ἔρχεσθε (which would obviously be ...

Re: Translation of the Words ἓν, ἤρξαντο, ἀναφορὰν ἔχειν

You won't get past decoding if you're thinking in English while looking at Greek/Hebrew. Sounding like an echo chamber. The point has been made a thousand times on this forum. Who cares? The academic publishers including Oxford[1], Harvard, ... continue to crank-out diglots. All the bible software ...

Re: Translation of the Words ἓν, ἤρξαντο, ἀναφορὰν ἔχειν

What experience do you have the with Greek language? I have been reading the New Testament in the Koine Greek language, which is much easier than other ancient texts. There are many words which I do not know, but I still understand the Christian Greek Scriptures because of having already read them ...

Re: Translation of the Words ἓν, ἤρξαντο, ἀναφορὰν ἔχειν

I am aware that the preposition εν means "in." But there is another word, ἕνος (which has the form ἓν), which is given a definition which seems to allow for the rendering “one” in some contexts. There is also the word ἑνάς (which likewise has the form ἓν), and it is shown to be the equivalent of μο...
