Re: theios aner

also, before I read this, would you say the response in this book is the best and/or closely understood position on W[h]eedens' book or the theios aner understanding. It was discussed quite a bit on the old Crosstalk2 Yahoo Group (late 1980s to early 90s), which might still have searchable posts. W...

Re: “In the flesh”: Recovering the lost grammar of Paul in Galatians in light of echos in Hebrews

Hi Greg, I kind of formatted your Fall 2020 thesis to break things down for me. A copy of a PDF of this is attached here: I thought I'd let you read it over and make any necessary changes you may want to make before I started serious analysis. Like you, I am an amateur who knows enough Greek to be d...

Re: “In the flesh”: Recovering the lost grammar of Paul in Galatians in light of echos in Hebrews

OK, does this mean that Gregory Hartzler-Miller is "you"? (Not that there's anything wrong with that) :eek:

I'll still give everything a look through.

Re: “In the flesh”: Recovering the lost grammar of Paul in Galatians in light of echos in Hebrews

Eh? Yes, "Eh?" is one legit response. I just reread the thesis myself, and cleaned up some sloppy writing of my own. I'm sure there is still a lot that is unclear. Care to be more specific about what it is that gives you that "Eh?" sense? I'm not trying to be obtuse or anything like that. It's not ...

Re: How many times does Jesus get in a boat?

My guess would be as often as a boat was, as Odysseus called it, "well benched." Not sure if that refers to the construction (comfy for the rowers' rear-ends) or to the condition it was in (bench was worn down by constant use so as to become comfy to the rowers' rear-ends). It could also be intended...

Re: The rulers of "this age"... what is the age?

Since the basic meaning of Aiōn is a "defined period of time," then I would not go too far from that to explain what the author meant by it. Based on my "has-to-be-wrong and highly speculative"™ segregation of 1 Cor 2:1-17,* the Aeon talk is introduced in the Christ commentary that I think was tacke...

Re: Paul's "thorn in the flesh" in light of Numbers 33:55

If, as suggested by LXX usage, σκόλοπες is interchangeable with βολίδες, and if the parallel phrases σκόλοπες ἐν τοῖς ὀφθαλμοῖς ὑμῶν [Numbers]/βολίδας ἐν τοῖς ὀφθαλμοῖς ὑμῶν [Joshua] both symbolize the danger of desiring sexual mixing with Gentiles, it is easy--for me at least--to read Paul's σκόλο...

Re: Paul's "thorn in the flesh" in light of Numbers 33:55

Nice post! That phrase "thorn in my flesh" in 2 Cor has intrigued me for a while. I never tried to look into it really. The way you went at the search is one that I like to use. Compare the GNT citations of Judaean scripture as they are found in the LXX (5 Books of the Law) or Old Greek (for all the...
