Re: Subject and Predicate in 1 Cor 11:3 παντὸς ἀνδρὸς ἡ κεφαλὴ [ὁ] Χριστός ἐστιν

I should add that 1 Cor 11:7b ἡ γυνὴ δὲ δόξα ἀνδρός ἐστιν puzzles me on this hypothesis. The woman, she is man's glory. ??? Shouldn't that be ἡ γυνὴ δὲ ἀνδρός ἐστιν δόξα instead? This is where I'm unsure about the ways ἐστιν might diverge from the usage of the pronouns. Because on the one hand, yes...

If ἐστιν clitics behave the way pronominal ones do, then [ὁ] Χριστός ἐστιν is the natural predicate/assertion.

Re: In Acts 5:3, what is the function of σε?

Siebenthal is in German, but it is being translated, I hope the translation is good. The translation is finished. Here is the English version: https://www.amazon.com/Ancient-Greek-Grammar-Study-Testament/dp/1789975867 . According to the preface, it is basically a slightly-edited and slightly-expand...

Re: In Acts 5:3, what is the function of σε?

Isn't the accusative, by definition, always the direct object? Normally, but not always.Infinitive verbs always take the accusative case for their subjects. Consider in English: I wanted her to eat the apple. The pronoun 'her' is the object of 'wanted', but the subject of the English infinitive 'to...

Re: Good discussion of predicate nominals?

In linguistics, we call these secondary predicates (either applicative or depictive constructions depending on whether or not they communicate a change of state.).

Re: What replaced the optative in Koine?

I've often heard that the optative gradually disappeared from spoken Koine and was replaced by the subjunctive, but none of the grammars actually list the functions of the optative under the subjunctive, since there don't seem to be any examples. For example, what takes the role of the potential op...

Re: Richard Rhodes on Definiteness

It's a bit clearer than the usual way of explaining definiteness, which involves identifiability. But there are uses of the Greek (definite) article that don't fit into the explanation, for example, Matt 26:51. Matt 26:51 Καὶ ἰδοὺ εἷς τῶν μετὰ Ἰησοῦ ἐκτείνας τὴν χεῖρα ἀπέσπασεν τὴν μάχαιραν αὐτοῦ κ...

Re: In Revelation 7:14, is there a grammatical reason why ἐκ shouldn't be read "since"?

"Since" as in, "after"? Or "since" as in "reason"?

The former might be possible, but not the latter.

But with motion verbs (ἐρχόμενοι), we expect object of ἐκ to function as a place of origin. They came out of the great tribulation (i.e. because they died).
