Re: Gal. 1:15-20 σαρκὶ καὶ αἵματι... τὸν ἀδελφὸν

In this interpretation, James is understood to be both an apostle and a blood brother. I would agree that is what Galatians is getting at here. Thus, might the idea of "the brother" connect meaningfully with the earlier idea of "flesh and blood"? Well, I'm not quite sure "m...

Re: In Deuteronomy 12:5 lxx, what is the sense of ἐκλέξηται?

"may choose" is an easy enough understanding. Robertson on the aorist subjunctive (p. 848; 18.2.1c): There is only relative time (future), and that is not due to the tense at all. The subjunctive is future in relation to the speaker, as is often true of the optative, though the optative st...

Re: pronunciation difference between η and ει

The main resource for these sort of questions is still F. T. Gignac's A Grammar of the Greek Papyri of the Roman and Byzantine Periods (released 1976). On η for υ and vice-versa, he states (Vol. 1 p. 262): a. υ x η· This interchange occurs frequently in all phonetic conditions throughout the Roman a...

That depends on who you ask (and on the century), but more or less, yes, both η and ει (and ι as well) started to have the same pronunciation, and still do in modern Greek.

Though Anna Mambelli hasn't uploaded the paper, judging from this you will probably be able to email and request an offprint: https://www.academia.edu/44051707/The_Influence_of_the_Septuagint_on_the_Vocabulary_of_the_Second_Epistle_of_Peter_The_Cases_of_%E1%BD%81%CE%BC%CE%AF%CF%87%CE%BB%CE%B7_%E1%BC...

Re: Die Septuaginta – Themen, Manuskripte, Wirkungen

Excellent; think I'm going to start a GoFundMe page so I can buy the book, plus the others I've not been able to buy this year. I'll probably just email the scholars who's papers interest me and see if they are allowed to email offprints. It's how I've been able to read all of Brent Nongbri's articl...
