Re: Participle in Matt. 27:55

I agree with Stirling about the meta-language. I don't think you are inventing it, but it's a bit much for us old guys who cut our teeth on traditional grammars. However I would say that the placement of ἐκεῖ so close to your thetic ἦσαν precludes the periphrastic understanding, and that narrows it...

Re: Is this a legitimate translation of Hebrews 1:8?

Since you linked to this from whatever stack exchange, I will say that I just checked both JPS 1917 and JPS 1985, and neither reads like you've stated here. Neither is the CJB (as I found through your links) worded that way. That wording is not in the "Complete Jewish Bible," as often refe...

Re: Articular?

I have read that if the article is not the word before, then the word is not articular. Is this correct? And would that mean that these are not considered articular? ὁ δὲ Θεὸς ὁ τε Θεὸς As Barry said, these postpositive particles regularly intervene between the article and its head noun. These are ...

Re: In Mark 14:12, how should ὅτε τὸ πάσχα ἔθυον be understood?

So your grammatical analysis is determined by the context? Yes, but not just grammatical analysis. Syntax, semantics, grammar, lexis... everything has to do with context, does it not? Even context has to do with context! There is literary context, historical context, social context, political conte...

Re: its all greek to me

in other words - I haven't got a clue. I try to gain a better understanding of the phrase of love thy neighbour like thyself, understanding it to mean those who you call your own. After all, the ultimate sign of love to give your life for oneself does not make sense but you can give your life for t...

Re: its all greek to me

Given that this thread is under "Introductions," perhaps we should curtail any further discussion about this question and put it under "Beginners."

I'll go ahead and do that.

Re: In Mark 14:12, how should ὅτε τὸ πάσχα ἔθυον be understood?

So only context can tell us if custom or simultaneity is intended. That' what I was afraid of! Thanks. What I'm afraid of is not seeing why it must be this way or that way. It was the time at when the Jews customarily offered the Passover at the Temple, and it was the time when the Jews at that spe...

Re: its all greek to me

There's an ellipsis here by which ἀγαπήσεις τὸν πλησίον σου ὡς σεαυτόν means: ἀγαπήσεις τὸν πλησίον σου ὡς [ἀγαπᾷς] σεαυτόν. Love your neighbor as [you love] yourself. No information is encoded in the accent itself. I'm not sure what information you think is encoded there. If you learn the noun/adje...
