Re: Catena in Marcum: ὥσπερ οὖν

Here is the text from page 316, lines 26 through page 317 line 2 with the part of most interest highlighted: “Καὶ παρεκάλει αὐτὸν πολλὰ, ἵνα μὴ ἀποστείλῃ αὐτοὺς ἔξω τῆς “χώρας,” ἢ εἰς τὴν ἄβυσσον ἀπελθεῖν, ὥς φησιν ὁ Λουκᾶς. ἡ γὰρ ἄβυσσος ἀναχώρησίς ἐστι τούτου τοῦ κόσμου. ἀξιοῦσι τοίνυν οἱ δαίμονε...

Re: Catena in Marcum: ὥσπερ οὖν

Well, if taken as a collocation: ὥσπερ οὖν as really or truly, as in fact, in parenthetical phrases: εἰ δʼ ἔστιν, ὥσπερ οὖν ἔστι, θεός but if he is, as is in fact the case, a god PLAT. Phaedr. 242e; οὗτος μὲν οἴεταί τι εἰδέναι οὐκ εἰδώς, ἐγὼ δέ, ὥσπερ οὖν οὐκ οἶδα, οὐδὲ οἴομαι this man does not know...

Re: Koine majuscule letter stroke order, advice requested

As to your question, “original manuscripts?” You mean, autographa manuscripts by Peter, Paul, Luke, etc.? My personal guess, as of today, is that perhaps some of Paul’s letters were written in wax tablets, apparently that was somewhat standard for letters. See the paper by West that I link to in my...

Re: Hi!

Hey Barry, thanks. Only now catching up. Wish y'all had emailed me or something about the username change, I was getting slightly antsy, because until I guessed that my username had been changed, I couldn't log in, and I was wondering why... :P Being me, I would have preferred to keep ''yamaplos'',...

Re: Matthew 27:46 hina clause not in subjunctive mood

ἵνα τί με ἐγκατέλιπες Why is this hina clause not in subjunctive mood? The ἵνα clause has no verb. It's just ἵνα τί. You could think of it as "You abandoned me in order to what ?" if it helps you to English it differently. Exactly. Consider the 'subjunctive' to be inside the τί, as if to say "in or...

Re: Matthew 27:46 hina clause not in subjunctive mood

ίνα τι, in some texts written as one word, is simply taken together to mean "why," and so does not take the subjunctive.

Welcome, Yama. I don't know what triggered the rejection of your previous post. I have gone ahead and done your screen name change.

Re: Romans 1:1. Own translation. Grammar check

Thank you Barry, (1) Yes, I understood the “problem”. I am glad I am on track, so far. … The context is interesting (!), but I am not presenting my interpretation here. (I can speak in some depth about how “into” makes perfect sense, in the context…) Such an odd comment. Context is the single most ...

Re: Romans 1:1. Own translation. Grammar check

Thank you. This helps me - to know there is no problem with the grammar, per se. I understand that the "problem" (constructive reason?) is with the usage of είς. (That "into" the gospel does not seem to make sense…) In considering the feedback above, I think the rendering of είς as “for”, is nevert...

Re: Romans 1:1. Own translation. Grammar check

Thank you. (To me, “the reader” is the person reading the translation…) The phrase “separated into the gospel” may seem nonsensical. Because, the gospel is an announcement. Yet, the definition of the Greek word εἰς, per Strong’s Concordance, is " to or into (indicating the point reached or entered,...
