Re: "upon this rock" in Matthew 16:18

Hey, Stephen. Thanks for your reply. So, as far as you know, there is no certain way to tell what επι ταύτη τη πέτρα (upon this rock) is referring back to. Another question we could ask is whether John believed the pronoun referent could be clearly identified. Given the number of interpretaions tha...

Re: "upon this rock" in Matthew 16:18

κάγω δε σόι λέγω ότι συ ει Πέτρος και επι ταυτη τη πέτρα οικοδομησω μου την εκκλησιαν και πυλαι άδου ου κατισχυσουσιν αυτής. Since this is such a controversial passage regarding "επι ταυτη τη πέτρα", I would like to get some feedback on what other NT Greek students believe the pronoun "this" is ref...

Re: long alpha in dia?

David, To give you a little more information to feed into your analysis model, consider the Hellenistic novel by Longus, named after the hero and heroine Daphnis and Chloe , specifically 3.13.1. καὶ ἄρνες καὶ ταῖς μητράσιν ὑποκλάσαντες // τὴν θηλὴν ἔσπασαν ὑποκλάσαντες (+dat.) refers to the lambs po...

diekaloun (with an eta augment).
διηκόνει and διηκόνουν are the two extant imperfect forms of the verb in question.

Re: John3:1

Hi Jeffery, If Greek is defined by the English grammar needed to translate it - as some grammarians still do - then the internal subject of ἦν could be used as the (pseudo)subject and ἄνθρωπος, Νικόδημος, and ἄρχων would be the predicates. This happens in other other uses of the verb to be too. Sinc...

Re: Mat.14:7 Dative to the left or just right

Interesting enough, but in the context of a discussion on word order, Pennington doesn't explicitly state which verb the "intervening" indirect object goes with. Either Herod made some grand statement to all around him, "By Jove, mark my words, I will give her what she asks for", OR he praised the g...

Mat.14:7 Dative to the left or just right

ὅθεν μεθ’ ὅρκου ὡμολόγησεν αὐτῇ δοῦναι ὃ ἐὰν αἰτήσηται.
Does anything in this sentence fragment indicate the dative can also be taken with ὁμολογεῖν?

Re: Mk.14:4,5

Johanine account ... what Mark puts after the γὰρ ... The Matthean redaction I'm not convinced that all of these accounts are describing the same event, though they could be. If we assume they are parallels, perhaps they provide some measure of support to the idea that Mark was recording what the c...

Re: μοιχαλίς (ίδος) precedents or parallels for adjective

-τρια endings are common in Modern Greek for female occupations: ... πωλήτρια (saleswoman), cf. πορφυρόπωλις, -ιδος, ἡ "female seller of purple cloth" still has the (perhaps diminutivising¹) feminine ending in the NT. For ther examples, we might like to consider the social relationships προστάτης "...
