Re: ἐν ἑνὶ πνεύματι Agent, Instrument, Sphere? I Corinthians 12:13

Thank you. I recognise the language of going down into the water and coming up from the water. However, my question regards 1 Corinthians 12:13 and the preposition ἐν. Does the collocation of ἐν with βαπτίζω in the Gospels (Matthew 3:11 Ἐγὼ μὲν ὑμᾶς βαπτίζω ἐν ὕδατι εἰς μετάνοιαν, compare Mark 1:8;...

Re: Eph 2:8 τοῦτο ... τὸ δῶρον

So, bottom line for me is that the the summative anaphoric use of τοῦτο here better fits the context than any kind of "forward attraction." Sounds like something’s missing with the initial “So,” but I don’t really see a necessary tension between the two positions. The forward attraction merely expl...

Re: Rev. 1:4 ὁ ἦν not ὁ γενόμενος

Interestingly, I just found an example of ὁ after ἀπό in a grammatical treatise of all things, Herodianus, De locutionum pravitatibus (ed. Cramer, p. 246): ὥσπερ ἀπὸ τοῦ γένους ἡ πληθυντικὴ δοτικὴ τοῖς γένεσι γίνεται, οὕτω καὶ ἀπὸ ὁ συγγενὴς, τοῖς συγγένεσι. ("Just as the dative plural τοῖς γένεσι ...

Re: Eph 2:8 πίστις and τοῦτο

I hate to bring up a five-year old post, but what are the reasons that the proposal of forward attraction of τοῦτο to the neuter δῶρον is unsatisfactory? τῇ γὰρ χάριτί ἐστε σεσῳσμένοι διὰ πίστεως· καὶ τοῦτο οὐκ ἐξ ὑμῶν, θεοῦ τὸ δῶρον 9 οὐκ ἐξ ἔργων, ἵνα μή τις καυχήσηται.

Re: Rev. 1:4 ὁ ἦν not ὁ γενόμενος

There is very little doubt that this is an intentional solecism on the part of the author. It's a judgment call whether one case of pushing the boundaries of syntax and grammar is a solecism or something sublime. In this case, I've just had the thought today that it could be a blend of a quotative ...

Re: Rev. 1:4 ὁ ἦν not ὁ γενόμενος

Barclay (Revelation) suggested a long time ago that this was ungrammatical, but probably due to the author's emphasizing the unchangeable nature of God. It could be, but fixed rules for the details of a language is a myth created by government language committees who have the power to change the la...

Barry I went to the user control panel to modify my profile but wasn't able to change the user name.

Stephen thanks.
You can't, actually. A moderator has to do it for you.

Re: Peter Rabbit in Koine Greek

Sure! We went for a formal equivalency to the degree our vocabulary constraints allowed (GNT and LXX vocab only). Glosses are provided as reader helps for all words occurring fewer than fifty times in the NT. And we made a concerted effort to use actual idiom and constructions found in our corpus a...
