Re: Essentials of New Testament Greek - Revised - Case Question

Thank you for the replies Jason and Barry. I've forgotten most of what I learned (about 20 or so years ago) in Greek class so I won't have to put too much effort into not allowing what I learned to confuse me. I still have an old Greek Software program from back then (Greek Tutor by Parsons) that I...

Re: Form of the Verb ἀποτρέπου at 2 Ti 3:5

I thought that if a writer wants to emphasize to readers not familiar with the Greek language that a Greek word is in the present tense and implies a continuous action, he can use such a label. You can and are allowed to say whatever you want. You could call it "the present superdooper potenti...

Re: Form of the Verb ἀποτρέπου at 2 Ti 3:5

Thank you for the explanations. I can conclude that I can call ἀποτρέπου a "continuous present imperative verb." (I was writing a study note on 2Ti 3:5 in an essay on 2 Timothy chapter 3 and therefore needed to ascertain exactly what term to use when referring to this verb.) There is no s...

Re: noob here

Hi Everyone, My name is Dave and I have been learning Koine on my own (with the help of books and free online resources).

Re: Form of the Verb ἀποτρέπου at 2 Ti 3:5

Thank you. In Greek grammar textbooks, are such verbs properly called “present continuous imperative” verbs or simply “continuous imperative” verbs? The word "present" contains the idea of aspect, so "continuous" is not a category in Greek grammar. Outside of the indicative mood...

Re: Is this a legitimate translation of Hebrews 1:8?

In my original question I cite this source: https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/%CE%B8%CE%B5%CF%8C%CF%82#Adjective This time I intentionally edited the post to correct the link. ;) Yeah, I checked that link just after I submitted the post. Notice that it says that it is used adjectivally only in the com...

Re: Is this a legitimate translation of Hebrews 1:8?

So basically, in Koine, the "nominative" form can equally be nominative, adjective and vocative, with context being necessary in order to identify which is intended? I was going to just ask about the word "adjective" here and if it was a typo. I don't think that a noun in the no...

Re: In John 17:3, are these two variants identical in meaning?

So would it be fair to say that neither rendering, cause or effect, can be ruled out? Our best bet then being to look for contextual clues? IE: The grammar itself doesn't lean either way? When I have a problem with a section or when something like this comes up, I like to "take a run at the pa...
