Re: Anaphoric Article

It seems like they are trying use valid principles but in an improper way. But is there a simple rebuttal? What I mean is, θεοῦ in verse 1 has the article. So to me, either the first use should govern (if there is any relationship based on the use of the article), or each should be considered indep...

For myself, I've learned over the years that if something doesn't feel quite right, double and triple check. More than onc...

Re: Jussive future ?

You are parsing it wrong. It's a 2nd singular m/p imperative. 1st person future would be πειράσω. Thanx Barry. I actually tried find evidence of exactly that. But I failed. I couldn't find a lex that showed the form. I assumed an intervocular sigma dropped out from the future. I will get the Accord...

Yes, this moderator meant to embed a note in one of Rob's message, but hit the wrong sequence of buttons, and it didn't embed. Rob, please contact a...

Re: In John 1:14, why is the deponent verb ἐγένετο translated as if passive?
