Re: 2 Cor 1:3 articulation within a Granville-Sharp construction

As for the second, I wonder if it isn't simply an Apollonius' Canon thing. I'm wondering (and did wonder in this thread) the same. "I wonder if" is code for "It most likely is." Well, it is certainly suggestive enough to generate a plausible hypothesis. As for its likelihood, that will take more ri...

Re: 2 Cor 1:3 articulation within a Granville-Sharp construction

In your first example, I think because it's not unusual for feminine abstract nouns to omit the article, and particularly in the oblique cases. Never heard of this rule. Of course you haven't heard of it, because I made it up. If you look at Smyth, he states that abstract nouns generally do have th...

Re: 2 Cor 1:3 articulation within a Granville-Sharp construction

Or did Stephen mean τής Μαρίας ~ Ιάκωβου? Yeah, I was thinking this. Only pattern with these two are the genitives are either articular or anarthrous if the governing substantive is also (θεὸς/αδελφός), hence Stephen's question. Yeah, it's almost like the individual nouns in a Granville-Sharp const...

ἀδελφός is clearly appositional to the already articular ὁ υἱός, so no need to repeat the article.

Yes.

Re: 2 Cor 1:3 articulation within a Granville-Sharp construction

Here's another example: Mark 6:3 ό υιός τής Μαρίας καί αδελφός Ιάκωβου. The first one takes the article but the second does not.

2 Cor 1:3 articulation within a Granville-Sharp construction

In 2 Cor 1:3 ὁ πατὴρ τῶν οἰκτιρμῶν καὶ θεὸς πάσης παρακλήσεως, why does τῶν οἰκτιρμῶν take the article but πάσης παρακλήσεως does not?

Re: Richard Rhodes on Definiteness

"well, Galilee has a bunch of mountains, Jesus is in all likelihood near one of them, and that's the mountain he goes up." Yes, that is a fair description of what the article does to an audience's mind, though not consciously. However, if one has spent a lot of time walking along that NW lake shore...

I actually had one additional question; until Text-types are finally disregarded, would it be proper to cite א as a Western reading for John 1:18?
"Proper to cite" is a weird question: you should be asking your teacher.

Re: Richard Rhodes on Definiteness

Alright, you've said "no not this, no, not that, and no, certainly not that." So what do you suggest? Well, it's tough since I'm at the point where I'm most interested in the cases where the pat answers don't work. And "first-mention definites" present a prima facie problem for identifiability acco...
