Steve Runge: Stanley Porter’s Argument is Invalid

A few years ago I discussed some work by Steve Runge that challenges the foundation of Stanley Porter’s argument that the Greek verb does not grammaticalize time but only aspect–the heart of debates in Greek linguistic studies within the field of NT studies over the past 2 1/2 decades (emphasis on within the field of… Continue Reading

However, in neither case is it a matter of… Continue Reading
