Re: Shalom

Interlinears are the spawn of Satan, flesh eating bacteria, and yes, brain eating zombies. The reason Stephen recommends them is because his brains have been eaten! Of course, this happens to most people who stray from Greek and study (shudder) Egyptology. Remember all the warnings in the Bible abou...

Re: Using Strongs numbering system as a crutch

I have learned a little of the alphabet, how the letters appear in uncial and miniscule forms and i have learned the meanings of some words and a little of the grammar, the conjuctions that appear most often seem to have stuck in my head also. Thanks for that. I wouldn't suggest you use strongs for...

Re: Why three different forms of the same word?

In John 9:14 we have the word “ANEWXEN” which is 1st person singular aorist indicative of anoigw. In John 9:17 we have the word “HNEWXEN” which is also 1st person singular aorist indicative of anoigw. In John 9:21 we have the word “HNOIXEN” which is also 1st person singular aorist indicative of ano...

Re: Rev 19:7

αρνιον and αμνος are simply considered synonyms, diminutive force having been lost by the time the NT is being written. Thanks for your input Barry, I've heard this before but what i don't understand is, why the writer of John, uses both these words for lamb. He obviously made a conscious decision ...

Re: Shalom

Thanks for your input guys, Your right, understanding must come into play when translating. The trouble is, my understanding of the entire scriptures, is not the same as the majority. So i see things differently and a translator may do the same, he will base his translations on his understanding. F...

Re: Antecedant of LATREUO of Rev. 22:3

Barry, It seems to me that τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ τοῦ ἀρνίου acts as a single grammatical unit and serves specifically to modify ὁ θρόνος. To single out ἀρνίου breaking it out of its primary function in the noun phrase and elevating it to a subject seems odd to me. If anything the whole grammatical unit of τ...

Re: Shalom

Thanks, After having looked at a few posts on here, I've noticed that it seems a common occurence that the greek grammar is incorrectly translated in Revelation. This is where my interest in the greek is. I've gathered a couple of opinions on these texts so far, no one is in agreement though, so th...

Re: Object of LATREUO of Rev. 22:3

καὶ οἱ δοῦλοι αὐτοῦ λατρεύσουσιν αὐτῷ, In short, the situation is that because we know that the lamb refers to Jesus, How do you know for sure that the lamb refers to jesus and not a follower of his, one of his lambkins? Why didnt the writer use the masculine lamb instead of the neuter? Isn't that ...

Re: Rev 19:7

Hi, I am a beginner but straight away i have spotted this in the sinaiticus and the textus receptus. Revelation 19:7 in the translations it reads ' Let us rejoice and be glad, and give glory to him; for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and his wife has made herself ready. '. Some translations say...
