Re: Book on the Tetragram

Are there any extent copies of NT books that were made in the first centuries of the church that have either the tetragrammaton or a Greek transliteration thereof? If not, then this whole section is speculation, not evidence. Already in the first century, copies of NT books were made and spread far...

Re: Book on the Tetragram

Dear Isaac, Says I This "pseudo-transliteration" iaō lend, I feel, more credit to my understanding that the Tetragram is but the personal pronoun היא-הוּא, 'He'. The God of Abraham is but one and כבודו מלא עולם and so he needs no name; he is the one and only one: He. The W of yhw is thus f...

Re: a modal yiqtol in Gen 2:6a?

Dear Mark, The issue in my view is not modality, but rather semantics versus pragmatics, which is a neglected field in Hebrew studies. When we analyze a clause, and we come up with a certain interpretation of the verb, the question is whether the force of the verb that we see is an intrinsic factor ...

Re: When was yhwh replaced by 'adonai?

Dear Karl and Ste Walch, Since the focus of the list is Biblical Hebrew, we should stick to that. To discuss how the New Testament writers used the Hebrew Scriptures is legitimate, in my view. But christological issues are outside b-hebrew, so I refrain from such discussions. I only want to reiterat...
