Re: Luke 6:20 vocative?

I'm just reading an article by Charles L. Quarles, "The Use of the Gospel of Thomas in the Research on the Historical Jesus of John Dominic Crossan", CBQ 69 (2007): 517-36 in which he writes, "Since the causal clause that follows the Beatitude in Luke uses second person forms, however, οἱ πτωχοί in...

Re: Romans 13:3b - Statement or question?

"QELEIS DE MH FOBEISQAI THN EXOUSIAN·" (Romans 13:3b). This is punctuated as a statement. Is it more likely to be a statement or a question?

Re: Staging a New Testament meal

Here are some specific responses from the Classics list: You might want to look for A. Dalby & S. Grainger, The Classical Cookbook, Getty, 1996. it has a number of recipes adapted for the modern kitchen from ancient sources. Umm Is there really such a **thing** as a NT meal? The location of the meal...

Re: Staging a New Testament meal

Jonathan, it might be too late, but I posted this to the Classics list to see if anyone could point us to some resources to research it.

Ferguson & New Bible Dictionary

I find one of the best handbook introductions to the "History, Culture and Background" of the New Testament is Everett Ferguson's Backgrounds of Early Christianity , Grand Rapids, Eerdmans, 1993 (second edition). Succinct, but lots of relevant information (I used it in teaching NT Intro). Surprising...

Re: Illustrating Semantic Range

Jonathan, these are good observations, but notice that my first reason was: Unfamiliarity with the language So I agree completely. The more familiar we are with a language, the greater the chance we'll get it right. But I think we've all seen agenda driven lexical fallacy, as well... :? So that mean...

Illustrating Semantic Range

My favorite example to illustrate semantic range to show how context restricts that range (in normal prose) to one usage: The captain can run the ship with a run in her stocking while her crew members run a race on the run on deck 10. A native speaker of English will find such a sentence odd, but ne...
