POST 3: αὐθέντια as “Licence to Kill”

In Post 1, I made the observation over the uncertainty expressed in most lexica over the likely cognates and meanings of the αὐθέντης family of words. I followed this in Post 2, with a proposition for the recognition of two entirely separate semantic families and offered my own simplified definitions. In this post, I will begin to illustrate in a number of passages, why this simplification produces grammatically viable and consistent clarity.

A typical example ...

Post 2: BREAKTHROUGH!!! TWO αὐθέντης SEMANTIC FAMILIES

From my own observations - which are bound to have covered insufficient material, it is becoming my suspicion that the attempts to unify all the possible αὐθέντ- words into one family is the cause of the failure to make consistent results. Two cognate pairs are proposed - so why can’t they BOTH be correct? In other words, might we actually be considering here, TWO ENTIRELY UNRELATED SEMANTIC FAMILIES? Just maybe, it is an unfortunate, lexically ...

Post 1: Questions over the definitions of the authent- words

It may seem rather audacious of me to question the work of such auspicious scholars as Strong, Thayer, Liddell, Scott. Jones, MacKenzie, Vine et.al., yet what they have provided has not always aided a straightforward or semantically homogenous understanding of the uses and meanings of these words. In fact, the semantic family with the authent- stem have become notoriously difficult to rationalise across the range of literature which contain them.

Most lexica are honest enough ...

2Thes 2:1-4 ἡ ἀποστασία ... ὁ ἄνθρωπος τῆς ἀνομίας

2Th. 2:1 Ἐρωτῶμεν δὲ ὑμᾶς, ἀδελφοί, ὑπὲρ τῆς παρουσίας τοῦ κυρίου ἡμῶν Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ καὶ ἡμῶν ἐπισυναγωγῆς ἐπ᾿ αὐτὸν 2 εἰς τὸ μὴ ταχέως σαλευθῆναι ὑμᾶς ἀπὸ τοῦ νοὸς μηδὲ θροεῖσθαι, μήτε διὰ πνεύματος μήτε διὰ λόγου μήτε δι᾿ ἐπιστολῆς ὡς δι᾿ ἡμῶν, ὡς ὅτι ἐνέστηκεν ἡ ἡμέρα τοῦ κυρίου· 3 Μή τις ὑμᾶς ἐξαπατήσῃ κατὰ μηδένα τρόπον. ὅτι ἐὰν μὴ ἔλθῃ ἡ ἀποστασία πρῶτον καὶ ἀποκαλυφθῇ ὁ ἄνθρωπος τῆς ἀνομίας, ὁ υἱὸς τῆς ἀπωλείας, ...


Psalms of Solomon 17

C. Wanamaker (1-2 Thes NIGTC 1990) points out that Man of Lawlessness 2Th. 2:3 may reflect a tradition evidenced in Psalms of Solomon 17:11-22. This is a text for which we don't not have a Hebrew equivalent.

2Th. 2:3 Μή τις ὑμᾶς ἐξαπατήσῃ κατὰ μηδένα τρόπον. ὅτι ἐὰν μὴ ἔλθῃ ἡ ἀποστασία πρῶτον καὶ ἀποκαλυφθῇ ὁ ἄνθρωπος τῆς ἀνομίας, ὁ υἱὸς τῆς ἀπωλείας,

Jonah reading thread (Greek notes)

In Greek: If you don't understand something, please ask a question. If you do understand, please try to retell in your own words. Or ask topical questions.

ΙΩΝΑΣ 1:1-2

Καὶ ἐγένετο λόγος κυρίου πρὸς Ιωναν τὸν τοῦ Αμαθι λέγων Ἀνάστηθι καὶ πορεύθητι εἰς Νινευη τὴν πόλιν τὴν μεγάλην καὶ κήρυξον ἐν αὐτῇ, ὅτι ἀνέβη ἡ κραυγὴ τῆς κακίας αὐτῆς πρός με.

1 Timothy 3:16

Nestle GNT 1904
καὶ ὁμολογουμένως μέγα ἐστὶν τὸ τῆς εὐσεβείας μυστήριον· Ὃς?? ἐφανερώθη ἐν σαρκί, ἐδικαιώθη ἐν πνεύματι, ὤφθη ἀγγέλοις, ἐκηρύχθη ἐν ἔθνεσιν, ἐπιστεύθη ἐν κόσμῳ, ἀνελήμφθη ἐν δόξῃ.


The above is an ancient hymn current during the apostolic period (including obviously apostle Paul). The hymn has no syntactical connection to the rest of the Epistle but is an obvious allusion to ὁ Λόγος becoming flesh, from verses like John 1:1, John 1:14 and 1 ...
