Dear b-greek,

Relevant to Ted's question about Matt 16:19, Dan Wallace, in _Greek Grammar
beyond the Basics (647, n. 83), notes that:

Another issue related to semantics has to do with distinguishing this
participial use [periphrastic] with [sic, "from"] the predicate adjective
participle. This is particularly problematic with perfect passive
participles (in which the simple adjectival idea seems more pronounced than
with other participles). See Boyer, "Participles, 167-68, 172-73, for
discussion of participles. Essentially he argues that context helps, in
particular when the participle is thrown in with adjectives.
