Re: Church Father’s in Greek

Hello Seth, Was it homily 37 on Matthew or John you were after? For either, the best place is probably in one of the many volumes of the 19th century publication Patrologiae Cursus Completus: Series Graeca , produced by Jacques Paul Migne. Hom. 37 on Matthew is in volume 57 , column 419 onwards. Hom...

Re: Koine majuscule letter stroke order, advice requested

That said, I have a question if someone happens to know: what did the original manuscripts look like? Were all, some or any of them written in majuscules? I have thought that some of Pauls letters may have been like the oxyrynchus papyri's minuscules, but maybe some more literary works could have b...

Re: Koine majuscule letter stroke order, advice requested

I know that Brent Nongbri does mention ink, another frequently ignored subject in his 2017 God's Library , but having only recently procured a copy of that book, I don't know if he mentions stroke order. Unfortunately not; Brent's excellent book isn't too fussed with how to write the specific handw...

Re: John 7:35 - the 'diaspora of the Greeks'

Depending on how far Stephen N is wanting to pursue this question (interesting that there's three 'Stephen's' in this thread (I'm the third, btw :))), he may want to find Jan G. van der Watt's email and ask if there's an off-print of his discussion. Heck, may even be able to ask him if he has a pref...

Re: John 7:35 - the 'diaspora of the Greeks'

Seems the discussion in Anatomies of the Gospels and Beyond for this is on pages 309-11. Unfortunately G-Books doesn't contain the preview for p. 309 for me; but the text from pages 310-11 is viewable. I've posted it below (with some, but not all, references. They're the main ones IMO). The genitive...

Re: Greek Grammars on the Articulation of Prepositional Objects

I have to strongly disagree with Eakin in one detail: In Luke 8: 27 we are told of the Gerasene demoniac that " for a long time he had worn clothes, and abode not ἐν οἰκίᾳ, but in the tombs ". The meaning is certainly " in the house ", i. e. "at home ", rather "in any house", as R. V. has it. Why "...

Re: Greek Grammars on the Articulation of Prepositional Objects

Probably not, since the variant isn't even in Nestle-Aland. These scattered witnesses show that it is a common scribal error to omit it. There was a little facetiousness in my remark until I checked The Greek New Testament , R. V. G. Tasker edition which was produced as the underlying Greek text fo...

Re: Greek Grammars on the Articulation of Prepositional Objects

Most intriguing to me is the suggestion that Matt 13:44 is incorrect, or at least the translation "in a field" is incorrect! Matt 13:44 Όμοιά ἐστὶν ἡ βασιλεία τῶν οὐρανῶν θησαυρῷ κεκρυμμένῳ ἐν τῷ ἀγρῷ , ὃν εὑρὼν ἄνθρωπος ἔκρυψεν, καὶ ἀπὸ τῆς χαρᾶς αὐτοῦ ὑπάγει καὶ πωλεῖ πάντα ὅσα ἔχει καὶ ἀγοράζει ...

Re: Where to find Septuagint manuscript transcriptions ?

Edit: Should've read some of the posts before this more closely... Nice to see someone working on Alexandrinus. Here I located at least a possible unmentioned correction, and also a mistake in Swete's apparatus for 1 Chronicles. I don't have access the Göttingen edition to see whether they mention t...

Re: John 1 in Bodmer p66

Well it certainly has some punctuation - the mid-dot is used throughout to mark the end of clauses. Not exactly sure which Metzger publication you're referring to, but does he definitely say it has absolutely no punctuation? Even Floyd V. Filson in A New Papyrus Manuscript of the Gospel of John (The...
