Snark comment: Why is it that nobody outside of a narrow range of NT people ever talk about Granville Sharp?
Snark answer: because they don't have any doctrine which they would defend with that.

ἀδελφός is clearly appositional to the already articular ὁ υἱός, so no need to repeat the article.
Or did Stephen mean τής Μαρίας ~ Ιάκωβου?

Re: Editors Needed for Greek Lexicon

Probably because of practical reasons. Writing it in Greek would need much more competence, and for field work it should be translated anyways.

Re: In Revelation 7:14, is there a grammatical reason why ἐκ shouldn't be read "since"?

So they were victims of the tribulation of just a few years (around 70ad). I think it's better to think about the "literal" meaning and not the interpreted meaning at all when talking about this. I mean, there's a surface level "story" here. The whole story has a figurative meaning, but because it ...

I can't discuss this any further without leaving Greek for theology.
The passage is infamously passion rising, but why would it be impossible to discuss about it as a linguistic expression?

Re: In 1 Corinthians 12:3, why is κύριος Ἰησοῦς usually rendered "Jesus is Lord"?

"It indicates a quality/characteristic of the subject not the identity"? These are difficult words. How would you define "quality", "characteristc" and "identity" so that it's unambiguous to everyone what they mean in this context? Moreover, what does it have to do with the article? And if we say "...

Re: In 1 Corinthians 12:3, why is κύριος Ἰησοῦς usually rendered "Jesus is Lord"?

That appears to have some overlap but is, I think, distinct 1Cor 12:3: Ἰησοῦς is discourse old, we already know who Jesus is, so it's the topic. We say (or an imaginary person says) something about Jesus. ἀνάθεμα and κύριος tell what Jesus is (in someone's opinion), they are both statements about J...

Compare also with the famous καὶ θεὸς ἦν ὁ λόγος in John 1:1.

Re: In 1 Corinthians 12:3, why is κύριος Ἰησοῦς usually rendered "Jesus is Lord"?

Could you be more specific? I don't see anything unusual about the word order. Well, "choice implies meaning" and all that... why it's κύριος Ἰησοῦς and not Ἰησοῦς κύριος? I would say Ἰησοῦς is topic, κύριος is focus which is fronted for "emphasis". (Compare with ἀνάθεμα Ἰησοῦς.) In English it woul...
