Re: RP2005 ψύχος and / or ψῦχος

How does John 18:18 "ὅτι ψῦχος ἦν" make sense in the Greek then? [BDAG, ψῦχος "cold" (the English noun)] Apparently Greek idiom is different from English in that it uses the noun whereas we would use the adjective. I found the following on the Perseus site: Aristoph. Eccl. 535 ψῦχος γὰρ ἦν, ἐγὼ δὲ ...

Re: RP2005 ψύχος and / or ψῦχος

There is no significance in the different accentuation. This appears to be an accidental inconsistency.

The TR and also Westcott & Hort's edition accent both places as ψύχος, while other 19th century editions, followed by the Nestle editions, use the classical accentuation ψῦχος for both places.

Re: Mark 2:15-16 Punctuation - Nestle versus Tischendorf

I would say Lenski's first objection is not well formulated, but is on the right track. The verb ἀκολουθεῖν is certainly used mostly in the gospels in the sense of following a leader and especially of discipleship. Even generally in Greek it seems to me the verb usually implies you are going with so...

Re: 1 Cor 7:36 καὶ οὕτως ὀφείλει γίνεσθαι

I'm playing with the idea that καὶ οὕτως ὀφείλει γίνεσθαι is actually the apodosis, as if: "If anyone thinks he is behaving inappropriately with his virgin, if at the sexual peak, then it ought to happen this way: let him do what he wants (i.e. go through the marriage), he does not sin, let them ma...

Have you looked at Ciampa and Rosner's commentary? I don't have access to it right now, but they do inter alia discuss Winter's views.

Re: Differences between Louw-Nida 1988/1st ed. and 1989/2nd.

POSTSCRIPT It is possible that your source is making reference to LN 13.8 or LN 89.80 as possible domains for διὰ as an independent judgment , in other words using LN domains to make an observation independent of lexicon. This seems to be correct. Unfortunately Exegetical Summaries is not entirely ...

Re: Tischendorf 8th Edition

I can put out a version of Tischendorf’s 8th edition that corrects all of these errors if someone can tell me two things: 1. What word belongs in Luke 10:34 πανδοκιον or πανδοχιον? I cannot tell from the scan I have. 2. Which (if any) reading belongs at John 7:53-8:11? I don’t know Latin and I don’...
