Re: The Weekend Papyrus 5-28-2021

Yes, great finds. The text for download looks quite good. I have 40,000 other things going at the moment, but I do plan to have a good look at it.

Re: The Weekend Papyrus 5-28-2021

I've run over it quickly now and will look more on the thankfully, given the length, long w/e. But a quick question. Do you Barry, or anyone else know of a decent treatment of epistolary greetings and farewells that treats common letters as well as higher register material ? I have a study of Paul'...

The Weekend Papyrus 5-28-2021

P.Oxy 3.528. A bit longer than some of the other ones we've looked at, a letter from Serenus to his sister (and likely wife) Isadora. There are a lot of spelling variations, some of which are marked in the notes below. Note that more than once υ is substituted for οι. Yes, and the Greek is certainly...

Re: the "world" (κόσμος) in John 12:19

Or is this generally understood as hyperbole on the part of the Pharisees? I would say hyperbole, without a doubt. They simply mean that now even larger numbers of people are are interested in Jesus than before. I don't think the comment is necessarily restricted to the literal crowd present, but i...

I'm subscribed, but you linked the discussion and not the document itself. I certainly would not mind reading your monograph!

I didn't so much view it as "snarky" as "vigorous..." :)

Re: The meaning of Hebrews 4:15b

Also, I don't so much consider BAGD to be out of date when it comes to its entry on πειράζω as I consider it inaccurate. I spoke with Danker about this, but unfortunately it was after BDAG was published and he had no opportunity to take my work on the verb and its cognates into account. He did, how...

Re: The meaning of Hebrews 4:15b

I cite Cullman as an example of a scholar who thinks that the πειρασμοί spoken of in Heb. 4:15 are enticements to evil that human beings experience because they are human beings and arise due to the fact that they have fleshy desires. I am NOT using him to support my claim. Okay, thanks for the cla...

Re: The meaning of Hebrews 4:15b

Jeffrey Gibson has published an entire monograph on the meaning of πειράζω, so quoting an out-of-date-to-him resource is unlikely to be persuasive or move this discussion forward at all. Of course BDAG is out of date. How could I have thought otherwise? Ironically, if he considers that out of date,...

Re: The meaning of Hebrews 4:15b

I hope that the following is acceptable here, especially in light of your claim that Heb. 4:15 speaks to the broad range of human experience. As I argue below, the assumption that it does is grounded in a misreading of the text. Well, it's clear that you had a major agenda in asking the question. T...
