Re: ἐξέρχομαι ἀπὸ ... ἐξέρχομαι ἐκ ...

It appears that ἀπό signifies "away from" whereas ἐκ indicates movement "out of" something.

Re: βαπτιζόμενοι ὑπὲρ τῶν νεκρῶν

Fully realizing that BDAG lists ὑπέρ c. gen. as signifying "for" or "on behalf of", LSJ lists among its usages "over." I would tend to understand it in that sense here. While it would in some way constitute a lectio difficilior theologically to understand it as "for", I think that only applies to va...

Is "this construction" a middle verb that has an object? I see quite a few of them.
No, the question was not simply about a middle verb with an object but rather a middle verb with a reflexive object.

Re: Is ἀνέῳξεν τοὺς ὀφθαλμούς Jewish Greek?

It could be that this is a Jewish Greek expression, but it certainly doesn't mean "look" or "pay attention" or any related term. It does not appear in any Perseus text that I have (lemma:ἁνοίγω NEAR lemma:ὀφθαλμός), but only in the LXX, NT and Church Fathers. It has two meanings: (1) a literal openi...

Re: Word order in Lk. 4:18-19

Not really. It more or less follows the LXX with some omission and change of wording. 18 πνεῦμα κυρίου ἐπʼ* ἐμὲ οὗ εἵνεκεν ἔχρισέν με εὐαγγελίσασθαι πτωχοῖς,* ἀπέσταλκέν με,*⸆ κηρύξαι αἰχμαλώτοις ἄφεσιν* καὶ τυφλοῖς ἀνάβλεψιν,* ἀποστεῖλαι τεθραυσμένους ἐν ἀφέσει,* 19 κηρύξαι ἐνιαυτὸν κυρίου δεκτόν.*...

Re: πορεύθητι and πορεύου Acts 9:11 & 15

Carl W. Conrad wrote: I think that the sense of the verb ἀναστῆναι in Lk 9:18 is not "rise (from a reclining or seated position)" but "move off (from a settled position)" -- i.e. "get up and go away". That's a very common usage of ἁναστῆναι/ἀναστῆσαι for changing residence of an individual or a fami...

I wonder therefore, if it best to have a new label for it. There's no loss of information that way (you can turn it into adverb or conjunction as appropriate when comparing with analyses that do one or the other).
How about an "advjunction"? :D

Re: πορεύθητι and πορεύου Acts 9:11 & 15

The passive imperative does not have the agency of a subject in it. The man was asking for Jesus direct help Κύριε, ἐὰν θέλῃς, δύνασαί με καθαρίσαι.. The help comes expressed without the subject / agency of Jesus himself Θέλω, καθαρίσθητι. It is not expressed as καθαρίζω σε, i.e. it doesn't mirror ...
