Re: Gal. 4:13-14

Hi Jonathan, it's the second level of brackets that had made me think that you were putting οὐκ ἐξουθενήσατε οὐδὲ ἐξεπτύσατε and following under oἴδατε - because it's on the same level of indent as ὅτι διʼ ἀσθένειαν τῆς σαρκὸς κ.τ.λ. I suppose a programmer would take the ] on line 6 as signalling th...

Re: Ἀλώπηξ καὶ βότρυς (Aesop, Perry 15)

I think I have read somewhere that τὰ ἐπιμύθια were added later. It seems to me that we have in view here two different ways of responding to a failure to achieve a desired result. One can blame the circumstances - the bunch was exceptionally high, I had a hard day hunting yesterday and am not as st...

Re: Gal. 4:13-14

Thanks, Jonathan, I can see that I needed to close the bracket opened with οἴδατε. So I think I would have it like this (that is, as my attempt to represent Lachmann as interpreted by Burton): [ οὐδέν με ἠδικήσατε· ] [ οἴδατε δὲ [ ὅτι διʼ ἀσθένειαν τῆς σαρκὸς εὐηγγελισάμην ὑμῖν τὸ πρότερον ], καὶ [ ...

Re: Ἀλώπηξ καὶ βότρυς (Aesop, Perry 15)

I had in mind a more radical way of reconciling himself to the situation - he did say it πρὸς ἑαυτὴν, after all. I rather liked the section on cognitive dissonance in this article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Fox_a ... dissonance

Re: Ἀλώπηξ καὶ βότρυς (Aesop, Perry 15)

Thanks, Carl. I can see that for figs or grapes, but find it a little harder for πράγματα. Is there still a time element - 'I failed in my endeavour, because it wasn't the right moment for it' - which I suppose is quite near to 'I failed, because the circumstances weren't propitious'. Actually, I do...

Re: Gal. 4:13-14

Jonathan, taking you up on your diagrams, I don't yet understand why you have οἴδατε extending so far. First, with Lachmann's punctuation: οὐδέν με ἠδικήσατε· οἴδατε δὲ ὅτι διʼ ἀσθένειαν τῆς σαρκὸς εὐηγγελισάμην ὑμῖν τὸ πρότερον, καὶ τὸν πειρασμὸν ὑμῶν ἐν τῇ σαρκί μου· οὐκ ἐξουθενήσατε οὐδὲ ἐξεπτύσα...

Ἀλώπηξ καὶ βότρυς (Aesop, Perry 15)

Some interest has been expressed in reading Aesop's Fables, and I personally find them to be at a suitable level (ie not too hard). It's also been pointed out that Louis Sorenson has some excellent helps for a selection of them and that it might be a good idea to start with one or two of those. So h...

Re: The Objective of “Biblical Greek” Pedagogy

The links that appear under the Aesop thread look interesting to me and I think Jonathan is right; Louis' collection looks like a great place to start. Aim at providing learners with "comprehensible input." I had a look at the first fable on Louis Sorenson's site, Ἀλώπηξ καὶ βότρυς. Perso...

Re: Gal. 4:13-14

Jonathan Robie wrote:BDAG has some interesting references on the meaning of πιερασμός in this passage, which could affect interpretation
and if one follows the trail to ἐξουθενέω one finds the suggestion that it is a temporal accusative: 'during your time of trial with respect to my physical disability'.

Re: The Objective of “Biblical Greek” Pedagogy

If one thing we are trying to do is to read outside the New Testament, then I personally would benefit from the opportunity to discuss the text, perhaps in 'Koine Greek Texts' or 'Other Greek Texts'. I am thinking of 1) the papyri, there are some suitable ones I think in Milligan's Selections from t...
