On μονογενής

I did a brief study on the Greek word μονογενής. Now, I'm not familiar with the PIE root system, so I think I'm at a disadvantage as far as knowledge is concerned. But, I think I understand the general concept. Anyway, from what I can tell (and from others have told me on this forum), γένος (genos),...

Re: εὐγενής and its relation to γίνομαι

I'm trying to understand the relationship between γένος and the suffix —γενής --- meaning, how —γενής is formed from γένος (I assume it is, so correct me if I am wrong). es stem γένος no contraction γένεος → γένους γένεϊ → γένει (synaeresis) γένεα → γένη γενέων → γενῶν γένεσσι no contraction Can som...

Ephesians 1:7

ἐν ᾧ ἔχομεν τὴν ἀπολύτρωσιν διὰ τοῦ αἵματος αὐτοῦ τὴν ἄφεσιν τῶν παραπτωμάτων κατὰ τὸν πλοῦτον τῆς χάριτος αὐτοῦ It seems to me that τὴν ἄφεσιν τῶν παραπτωμάτων is in apposition to τὴν ἀπολύτρωσιν διὰ τοῦ αἵματος αὐτοῦ. Is there any other way to understand their relationship? The same phenomenon occ...

Re: Distinction of κράτος, ἰσχύς, and δύναμις

LSJ doesn't help much.

For example, you said kratos means "brute force," and LSJ also gives that meaning for ischus (A3).

BTW, LSJ is usually my first stop. b-Greek is where I come to get more in-depth answers when LSJ doens't offer a solution.

Re: 2 Peter 3:5 (also cp. 2 Peter 3:8)

I agree. To me, the KJV translation seems wrong, but I guess they just found a different way to express the idea. "They are ignorant of this" to express the idea "This is hidden from them."

2 Peter 3:5 (also cp. 2 Peter 3:8)

λανθάνει γὰρ αὐτοὺς τοῦτο θέλοντας ὅτι οὐρανοὶ ἦσαν ἔκπαλαι καὶ γῆ ἐξ ὕδατος καὶ δι’ ὕδατος συνεστῶσα τῷ τοῦ θεοῦ λόγῳ It seems to me that τοῦτο ("this") is the subject (neut. nom.) and αὐτοὺς ("they [themselves]") is the direct object (masc. acc.). Here's the A.V.: For this they willingly are ignor...

Re: Ephesians 1:4

In Ephesians 1:12, Paul uses the construction εις το ειναι ημας, but in 1:4, he only uses ειναι ημας. Is there an explanation for this? Is it a distinction without a difference in meaning?
