Re: Biblical conditioning, ἅπαξ

My senior thesis as an undergraduate was a research paper on the non-literary papyri. Have you read Deissmann? Thrilling read, as fresh now as ever, tho he extrapolates a bit too far sometimes. These old classics are just great. I had a similar thrill with Burgon's defence of Mark's long ending. Of...

Re: Biblical conditioning, ἅπαξ

τὰ νῦν the phrase in the NT is used 5 times, and only in Acts: Chapter 4 UBS5 (Ac 4:29) καὶ λαοῖς Ἰσραήλ, 28 ποιῆσαι ὅσα ἡ χείρ σου καὶ ἡ βουλή [σου] προώρισεν γενέσθαι. 29 καὶ τὰ νῦν, κύριε, ἔπιδε ἐπὶ τὰς ἀπειλὰς αὐτῶν καὶ δὸς τοῖς δούλοις σου μετὰ παρρησίας πάσης λαλεῖν τὸν… Chapter 5 UBS5 (Ac 5:3...

Re: Biblical conditioning, ἅπαξ

accusative substantive itself used adverbially Now go easy on jargon-stringing :lol: That BDAG portion made me think though: I know νῦν is classified only as an adverb, but could it be (I don't know the grammar term for this) one form for different words? Just as the word "now" is? So you can say "...

Re: Biblical conditioning, ἅπαξ

I'm aware of those LXX specimens. Deissmann mentioned some scholars thought it's probably a Coptic thing, but he differed. I mean how many times have you seen a substantival adverb? In English it's normal to say "I've not seen anyone walk this slowly", but "that other slowly" or "one more slowly"? ...

Re: VIDEO for the Biblical Language Center summer fluency/pedagogy workshops

So your new curriculum is based on the Colloquia? In short, yes :) The longer answer is that the colloquia are one of several main driving forces that help shape the material, but the colloquia are probably the most significant of these several driving forces. I outline five main principles here: h...

Re: Colossians 2:16 ἐν μέρει ἑορτῆς

Not, it's not controversial. You are right, and he is wrong. What he's done is cherry picked the meaning he wants to support his theology, and completely ignored the context. As a parallel in English, no one confuses: a) She can run a race, with: b) She can run a corporation. In the above, the direc...
