Working out the rusty hinges...

Hello all,

I'm glad to have found this wonderful resource. As of late, I've rekindled my interest in Koine Greek, and have been going through an old textbook (An Introduction to New Testament Greek, Huber Drumwright) and was trying to work through an excersise which has stumped me. Here it is...

John 15:12 and 13

Ok, just two short questions...

'This is my mission, that you love each other like/because I loved you.'
Why did Saint Jerome translate it as like and not because?

and

No one has more love than this, so that anyone/someone sets his soul for his friends.

Why can't they just write proper Greek :wink: ? I know what it's suppose to be, but hina tis (+ conj.) ...

prwreu\j
doesn't appear to be in the LSJ. It's obviously some sort of ship's officer. Does anyone know more precisely?

Holy Zeus! It's around 4am Saturday morning here in Montreal -- bad case of insomnia induced by Greek Grammar stress! So please bare with me if I'm a little incorent. :?

I Corinthians help...

Hi,

I am wondering if anyone can help me with this verse? I don't need them both translated or anything like that. What I am trying to establish is the Real Presence in the communion theology. I have been told that the Greek word that was used for remembrance actually meant to re-live.



I Cor 11: 23-27

For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus on the ...

Galatians 3, 28

In Galatians 3, 28 Paul says

ouk eni arshn kai thelu

I have two questions:
1) Is there a continual aspect in the verb eni ?
2) more importantly why did Paul not use anthropos and gunh instead of arshn and thelu ? What shade of meaning is added by the use of these terms?

Gratias ago vobis propter responsiones vestras futuras.
