Re: Spelling of σῴζειν in the Present Tense

This is a matter of convention. In Attic Greek the iota in σῴζειν was written as an adscript, i.e. ΣΩΙΖΕΙΝ. See the beginning of the article in LSJ. Over time in the Hellenistic period it fell out of use, as for other such iotas, but in medieval times it became fashionable to write them as a subscri...

Re: Word Order in Matt 21:33

Checking Davies and Allison's commentary in the ICC, Allison suggests that Matthew changes Mark 12:1 περιέθηκεν φραγμόν under influence of LXX Isa 5:2 καὶ φραγμὸν περιέθηκα, but this is from a time and approach with no real appreciation of discourse effects on word order. But perhaps there is somet...

Re: ἐντετυλιγμένον εἰς ἕνα τόπον (John 20.7)

From what you say, Andrew, Campbell Morgan appears to hold the rather popular view that when Jesus rose from the dead his body dematerialized and passed through the grave clothes and then rematerialized again. Then the σουδάριον would have been seen lying in exactly the place it had been before. It ...

Re: John 1:7-8 οὗτος, ἐκεῖνος

Stephen Levinsohn deals with this in his paper "Making Sense of Participant Reference: How the Same Person can be ὁ ἄνθρωπος & ἐκεῖνος & οὗτος & ὁ (Jn9)", page 7. http://www-01.sil.org/~levinsohns/Participant%20Reference.pdf Briefly, in verse 7 John is (temporarily) the centre of attention, so the p...

Re: Mt.28:7 ἰδού, εἶπον ὑμῖν.

Nick Bailey discusses the various uses of ἰδού in glorious detail in chapter 6 of his PhD dissertation. He has some discussion of Matt 24.25 and 28.7 on p. 365.

Re: SBL 2015 Biblical Lexicography session

Very interesting, and thanks for posting the slides. I wish I could be at the meeting. The examples in your §4 (Reframing πάλιν) seem to me to be open to alternative readings in which the πάλιν is preposed rather than postposed. I suppose you will discuss that possibility. And John 18.33 in §5 is in...

Re: Rev. 13:12 τὴν ἐξουσίαν τοῦ πρώτου θηρίου πᾶσαν

N. Turner in the Syntax volume of the Moulton Grammar gives statistics on the position of πᾶς (p. 202-03). The total number in the NT of occurrences of πᾶς at the end of the noun phrase is 33 according to his figures. He claims (p. 201) this position is for emphasis. But he doesn't give the actual r...

Re: Recitative Ὅτε in Oratio Recta ATR 1027-28

I think Robertson's observation about Mt27.43 supports your interpretation of his thoughts on Mt7.23. 9. INDIRECT DISCOURSE (Oratio Obliqua). pp. 1027-28 (a) Recitative Ὅτε in Oratio Recta. {snip ...) We find this idiom occasionally with ὅτι, more seldom with ὡς, in the Attic writers.2 It is very ra...

Re: Luke 11:17 καὶ οἶκος ἐπὶ οἶκον πίπτει

Πᾶσα βασιλεία ἐφ’ ἑαυτὴν διαμερισθεῖσα ἐρημοῦται, καὶ οἶκος ἐπὶ οἶκον πίπτει . I read that as "and house falls against house", or "and one house falls against another", Godet's preferred interpretation appears to be as you propose, though he does allow a second option. The words, "And one house fal...

Re: hUPARCHO and EIMI

Alford gives some thought to this question in his comments on Acts 16.20, which are worth considering. The distinction between ὑπάρχων and ὠν seems to be, that the former [ὑπάρχων] is used of something which the speaker or narrator wishes to put forward into notice, either as unknown to reader or he...
