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?

Mark 15:34

Mark 15:34

We are finally able to provide the published text of the article on the “cry of dereliction” from the Brill volume, The Language Environment of First Century Judaea, Randall Buth and R Steven Notley edd., (Brill, 2014, ISBN 9789004263406). The PDF of Randall Buth, “The Riddle of Jesus’ Cry from the Cross: the Meaning of ηλι ηλι λαμα σαβαχθανι (Matthew 27:46) and the Literary Function of ελωι ελωι λειμα σαβαχθανι (Mark 15:34)” is avaiable at:

www.biblicalLanguageCenter.com under “community” “BLC blog”

It is a fitting read/study for passion week.

Got a good laugh out of that. The suggestion assumes that I know enough coptic to correct the auto parsing mistakes.

Are you copting out?

Yeah, my objective with Sahidic is even less ambitious than a similar project with Syriac. I thought it would be useful to look at the architecture of the language and see to what extent the versions could be trusted in textual criticism. I thought it would be about as difficult as Syriac coming from Hebrew. I was wrong.

John 4:25

New Testament • Re: THE or A Messiah – Joh 4,25
Stirling Bartholomew wrote:
Salience marking of the anarthrous definite noun is a difficult concept for some of us to adjust to. It seems counter intuitive at least to English language natives. But it is affirmed by several of the widely read authors in NT text-linguistics.

Yeah, though I’d feel better if I could find some study outside of Koine or ancient Greek that addressed this.

[bible passage=”Philippians 2:16″] Okay then, while this is still bobbing near the surface … LSJ "hold out" and BDAG "hold onto" both give no explanation or references for their choice of meaning of ἐπέχειν in Pilippians 2:16. A starting point for discussion might be, Poythress, V. S., “Hold Fast” versus “Hold Out” in Philippians 2:16,…
