Re: Jude 3 Aspect

Ok, Barry does speak like a guy from WTS, I remember standing in the book store at Western (Portland OR) looking a two volume work by H. Dooyweerd (magnum opus) and a fellow student standing next to me said: "they read that sort of thing at Westminster" which decoded means the read Van Til Westmins...

Re: Jude 3 Aspect

inchoate vs something specific , something that was already formed What does that have to do with aspect? I read Barry as meaning inchoate as unbounded (or in your words, "the goal was unrealized"). Yes, that's right. And I'm not saying that the information is encoded in the infinitive so that it m...

Re: Next steps?

I think either would be profitable, but Decker's graded reader might be a little easier for you, and also expose you to more variety of NT literature.

We have γράφειν...γράψαι. What's the difference? I read the present infinitive of writing in general, w...

Re: πλάνη active or passive sense.

1) Deceit in English can also refer to the quality of deception. From dictionary.com: the quality of being deceitful; duplicity; falseness: a man full of deceit. 2) My understanding of BDAG is that it focuses on the NT and other early Christian literature, and not the papyri per se, though they will...

Re: Rev 19:7

Lol I just realized something, when you gave your replies and spoke about the last word in that greek line, I wasn't actually refferring to that word but the 'αυτου' and how it cannot say 'his' because the closest antecedent is the neuter lamb :) Whether something is grammatically neuter in Greek o...

Re: Why are there 6 principal parts instead of only 5?

The examples cited have already been show to have the same stem. You can use the terminology they have the same "root" (where I used the word "stem" as explained above), but it still begs the question. Alan Bunning You can either accept traditional terminology and formulations, or reject them, it's...

Re: μορφή as favor

Thanks Stephen. It is an interesting thought about from/to, and I have to admit that I would never notice it on my own. Thanks to you too, Ken. Does the fact that the LXX lexicon gives "favor" as one of the meanings of the word μορφή, while New Testament lexicons do not mention it, mean that the wh...

Re: Why three different forms of the same word?

Note that a similar variety of forms pertains in the LXX: Gen 8:6 Καὶ ἐγένετο μετὰ τεσσεράκοντα ἡμέρας ἠνέῳξεν Νῶε τὴν θυρίδα τῆς κιβωτοῦ ἣν ἐποίησεν... Gen 30:22 ἐμνήσθη δὲ ὁ θεὸς Ῥαχήλ· καὶ ἐπήκουσεν αὐτῆς ὁ θεός, καὶ ἀνέῳξεν αὐτῆς τὴν μήτραν· What's unusual about John 19 is that we have so many o...
