Re: New St Andrews College is hiring a Greek Professor

Always good to see. (By the way, I edited the title so as to avoid confusion with the more famous St Andrews in Edinburgh; this one's in Moscow, ID.)

Re: Ephesians 6:17

Another possibility is ὅ ἐστιν = τουτέστιν = id est (i.e.). The neuter simply became so entrenched as a fixed form that it ceased to be inflected like other discourse markers. This is basically BDF's explanation: In explanatory phrases Koine employs the neuter ὅ ἐστιν, τοῦτ' ἔστιν (τουτέστιν) 'that ...

Re: The Interpersonal Metafunction in 1 Corinthians 1–4

Would this book have any appeal to someone not into SFL?

Woodhouse gives τὸ διδασκαλεῖον for "school."

τὰ ἐν τῷ διδασκαλείῳ ἐρωτώμενα - "things asked in the school"

What do you think?
Right, σχολή means "leisure".

Re: Antiquities 1:78

I don't have access to some of my grammars, I was wondering why someone may use an accusative of respect rather than a dative of respect. I see that there was a shift towards the dative during the koine period, is there any kind of difference in meaning between the two constructions? There's a cert...

Could it be an accusative of respect, "the ark, with respect to the walls and roof"?

Incorporation.—The antecedent taken up into the relative clause is said to be incorporated. The relative and antecedent then stand i...

Re: Heb 11:1 Ἔστιν δὲ πίστις ...

I got a decent response from an Aaron Jensen on Facebook: It's topical. Faith was just mentioned in the context, so here “faith is” is topical to clarify up front the sentence is meant to provide a definition of said faith, and then that definition is allowed to be the accented beginning of its into...

Attridge looks like a(n uncited) source for Ellingworth, and the examples are much more to the point: I thought the same and indeed Ellingsworth does mention in the Preface ...; in its final  stages of preparation it has greatly benefited from the work of Attridge and Lane.
