What B-Greek does best

When B-Greek began back in 1992 (see the archives ), it was a mailing list with little competition. In 2011, we moved it to a phpBB forum, and still had little competition. These days, there are plenty of Facebook groups and other groups to discuss biblical Greek. What does B-Greek do best, compared...

Re: Participle in Matt. 27:55

To adopt a similar layout with a bit less detail, I would say: Thetic Ἦσαν δὲ ἐκεῖ γυναῖκες πολλαὶ > > > > adv ἀπὸ μακρόθεν > > > > v.part θεωροῦσαι Thetic simply meaning this whole clause is introducing some new participants into the story at this point: "Now there were many women there."...

Re: Participle in Matt. 27:55

Could he simply have meant that it provides further description of the women, that is, it is just generally adjectival ? I am reading it this way: vc Ἦσαν δὲ p ἐκεῖ s γυναῖκες πολλαὶ adv ἀπὸ μακρόθεν v.part θεωροῦσαι In this interpretation, ἀπὸ μακρόθεν is most closely associated with θεωροῦσαι, th...

Re: Participle in Matt. 27:55

Why couldn't it simply be circumstantial? "Many women were there looking on from afar." They were there eating (circumstantial). They were there listening to music (circumstantial). They were there looking (circumstantial). That's certainly how I'd read it. I just answers the question of ...

Re: εἰς in Matt. 6:13//Lk. 11:4

However, as it stands, εἰς with verbs of motion (of which εἰσφέρω is clearly one) often renders what we mean by "into." ② to cause someone to enter into a certain event or condition, bring in, fig. ext. of 1: εἰ. τινὰ εἰς πειρασμόν bring or lead someone into temptation Mt 6:13; Lk 11:4; D...

Re: εἰς in Matt. 6:13//Lk. 11:4

This morning, I realized that "to" seems to function the same way in English for verbs of motion and places. "I went to the store" implies that I actually went into the store. "I went to the fence" does not imply that I went into it or crossed it. The difference involve...

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. I agree. I use a lexicon in a couple of different ways. Often, I am just looking up a word that seems important so ...

I just looked up the meaning that they give for μονογενης Here the have it coming from μονος and γενος, γιγνομαι 1. Alone in birth; (of a son or daughter), only born, only - Hesiod, Aeschylus, Herodotus, Apollonius Rhodius, New Testament, Plutarch 2. (Of a royal line) from a single family - Plato 3...

Re: εἰς in Matt. 6:13//Lk. 11:4

The reason I asked about the preposition has to do with what Matt. 6:13//Lk. 11:4 might mean if the referent of πειρασμόν is a place, specifically the one that the LXX calls πειρασμὸς. Regardless, the "to" vs. "into" distinction doesn't help here, in Exodus 17 they were clearly ...

Re: the referent of the noun πειρασμός in Matt. 6:13//Lk. 11:4

Is there any evidence that what the noun πειρασμός refers to in Matt. 6:13//Lk. 11:4 (καὶ μὴ εἰσενέγκῃς ἡμᾶς εἰς πειρασμόν) is the place where the Wilderness generation put God to the test and is named πειρασμὸς in the LXX (Exod. 17:7 καὶ ἐπωνόμασεν τὸ ὄνομα τοῦ τόπου ἐκείνου πειρασμὸς καὶ λοιδόρησ...
