Greek Grammar and Scholarly Charity

I’m several days behind the news but I thought it was still worth posting. On his blog NT Discourse, Steve Runge posted about his article due out next year that critiques Stan Porter’s linguistic framework that was used in his seminal work Verbal Aspect in the Greek of the New Testament, with Reference to Tense and Mood and subsequent projects. Critique always occurs in scholarly discussions but this one is much more personal for Steve because Stan was his Greek teacher and Steve even served as his TA.

Steve’s entire post is worth reading about the subsequent history between him and Stan as well as the stretches he went to in order to discuss the issues before deciding to write this article for publication.
