The recent discussion on a sequence of aorist-present imperatives got my
The two answers are interesting to me.
>The main point in 2:13 is to flee (FEUGE), and the main
point in 2:20 is to go (POREUOU). The aorist commands
to get up (EGERQEIS) and take (PARALABE) the child are
secondary and supportive to the main
points to 'flee' and 'go'.<
Alternatively, we can consider that this is a passage where the "rules"
of grammar work: PARALABE is aorist imperative because Joseph needs to
grab up his family only once, whereas fleeing (FEUGE) and making his way
(POREUOU) all the way to Egypt will be a process involving some time.
Can these theories or explanations be applied to Mark 2:
EGEIRE (present) KAI ARON (aorist) TON KRABATTON SOU KAI PERIPATEI
"Arise, take, and go".
