Re: Question concerning accentuation in contract verbs

Compare morph.: pres. act. sg. ἐρωτάω > ἐρωτῶ; impf. act. sg. ἠρώταον > ἠρώτων My challenge is/was, it wasn't clear to me why the imperfect has a different accentuation. I guess it just does. There are similar accent changes in the imperative of contract verbs. The accentuation of the verb was fixe...

Re: Cambridge Greek Lexicon - interesting definitions

I’m more interested in its semantic analysis (how they break down the senses of a polysemous word) rather than in how they assign an otherwise unlocated NT usage to one of the senses.

Re: Khalaf - The Adnominal Genitive in the Pauline Corpus

Thanks for this notice. The way the description is written sounds like it’s mainly about chains of genitives, but maybe there’s more?

Re: ὡμοιώθη in parables of Matthew 13.24; 18.23; 22.2

Gnomic sounds right for this aorist. I do wonder if they are preferred in judgment contexts. "Deponent" is deprecated terminology; "middle" is better. What I think is going on is that Carson views "passive" narrowly as having an external agent in mind, which is not the...

Bill, Brant Pitre has written an entire book on the subject, Jesus and the Last Supper, where he argues that it is actually John who is misunderstood today. I recommend you read it and come back here with any questions that come up.

Bill Ross wrote: April 7th, 2021, 7:32 pm Okay, then is it specifically saying one animal was being killed or is it probably referring to all the lambs in the process of being slaughtered for the passover?

Re: Previous reference in Hebrews?

Hi Seth, the big issue is context. When a word is ambiguous between a person and place, and it's surrounded by other adjacent places, here, different parts of the temple, the reader is really primed to go with the place sense.
