Re: Matt. 21:17 Questioning Passive Deponency of αυλιζομαι

Hi Barry. Thanks for the Brill Dictionary quote. A couple of things... 1) "force" is a red herring. Pardon by bad choice of words. My assertion is just that the passive is functioning as a passive (however you want to translate it). Maybe "he was made/caused to spend the night" ...

Re: Participle in Matt. 27:55

Sorry on the metalanguage puke. Perhaps the occupational hazard of writing a dissertation which touches in many ways on passages like this. Should have cleaned it up after I wrote it. I'm currently swimming in 4 or 5 other peoples' metalanguage and trying to carve out my own in the process. On top ...

Re: Matt. 21:17 Questioning Passive Deponency of αυλιζομαι

I might point to Rachel Aubrey's chapter in The Greek Verb Revisited , who echoes Carl Conrad's work on the move of the aorist passive towards the aorist middle. In less than four hours now, I will get to listen to one of my students reflections on that chapter, and presentation to the other member...

Re: What B-Greek does best

Most Facebook groups are too large, such that when questions get asked the good answers tend to be drowned out by lots and lots of noise.

Re: Question concerning κατα

Thanks for the response Mike. Without committing to it, would you say Luraghi’s distinction between κατα and ανα with regards to exhaustiveness still holds in Koine? It doesn't hold for the New Testament, but there are also not many occurrences of ἀνά there are in the NT. But it's clear that κατά d...

Re: Question concerning κατα

It would be helpful to know what the Aubreys suggest for the function of κατά in Mt 8.32 and parallels. Are they making a distinction between "down from" and "down along"? What we've done isn't at the same scale of precision as Luraghi's monograph. We'd like to write a monograph...

Re: What Modern Greek Grammars do not take an Aspect only view?

Gotcha. Yeah, I haven't yet seen their grammar, but I'd be a little surprised if they changed that from their earlier intermediate grammar. When I talked with Ben Merkle back in 4/2019, he definitely seemed on the aspect AND tense side of things.

Re: What Modern Greek Grammars do not take an Aspect only view?

Köstenberger, Merkle, and Plummer's Going Deeper with New Testament Greek: An Intermediate Study of the Grammar and Syntax of the New Testament isn't aspect-only. It's a both tense and aspect view.
