Luke 22:38

New Testament • Lk.22:38 – Ἱκανόν ἐστιν. – “We’re armed!” or “Can it!”
Luke 22:38 wrote:
Οἱ δὲ εἶπον, Κύριε, ἰδού, μάχαιραι ὧδε δύο. Ὁ δὲ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς, Ἱκανόν ἐστιν.

Is the sense of Ἱκανόν ἐστιν. to say that two swords were adequate weapons, or that Jesus was suggesting that there should be no talk of bringing weapons?

Luke 21:21

New Testament • Re: Lk.21:21 and Asclep.Tact.1.3 ἐν μέσῳ as middle ground
Stephen Hughes wrote:
εἰς τὸ μέσον means “and become the middle”, “so everybody can see you”, i.e. there is a reorientation of direction of the people looking on, a new middle

Perhaps “focus” is a way of expressing a movable middle in English, “He stood up into focus.”, or more wordily expressed, “He stood up for to make himself the centre of everyone’s attention.”

Luke 19:7

New Testament • καταλῦσαι in Luke 19:7

I’ve been looking at the usage of καταλῦσαι in Luke 19:7 and am a bit stumped why it’s translated as “to be the guest of” (or a variation thereof) instead of to abolish, destroy, dissolve, etc.,

In light of the overall passage, it doesn’t make sense to use a derivative of abolish but I don’t understand either why it deviates so much from the other usages (i.e. Matthew 5:17, 61; Acts 5:39)

Luke 1:5

New Testament • Re: Luke 1:5: EGENETO’s function
RandallButh wrote:
Moon,

Yes, you can say that both egeneto structures provide setting material. However, they are two structures and it is useful to track them separately. The subject structure will introduce participants. The subjectless structure will provide a setting.

Commentators on Acts and Luke have led themselves astray by missing the distinction and making statements like “Luke uses the egeneto structure in both Luke-Acts,” implying that there is no qualitative difference. But there is. And it leads to a significant reappraisal of both works and fits well with other data.

Randall, thanks for the answer. So, are you saying:

(1) The EGENETO + subject structure is both found in Luke and LXX, and can be used to introduce a participant/character as sort of “setting” for a story..
(2) But this subject structure is NOT unique to LXX [Hebrew Bible], and can be a good Greek idiom.
(3) So, only the subjectless EGENETO structure can indicate the relatedness to Hebrew source.
