JUSTIN MARTYR - JESUS ROLE IS ALWAYS - ( QUALIFIED )! - Part 3
JUSTIN MARTYR (c. 110 to 165 C.E.): “...because this particular one is called a god and a lord, yet is [Gk., ( ἕτερος )] another numerically of a different kind and quality - [Gk., ( ὑπὸ )] ( INFERIOR TO ) THE MAKER OF THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE, who is also called an Angel, through whom messages to mankind are announced concerning whatever is willed by THE MAKER OF THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE, [Gk., ( ὑπὲρ )] ABOVE WHOM there is no [Gk., ( ἄλλος )] other god numerically of the same kind and quality...” - (Dial. Chapter 56:4; Translated by Matt13weedhacker 7/2/11 revised 27/9/11)
KENNETH WUEST: “...Trench warns, “There are not a few passages in the N.T. whose right interpretation, or at any rate their full understanding, will depend on an accurate seizing of the distinction between [Gk., ( ἄλλος ) & ( ἕτερος )] these words..." - (Synonyms of the New Testament by Richard Trench, 1944, page 357, As quoted in: Weusts Word Studies - Studies in the Vocabulary of the Greek New Testament for the English Reader in the Greek New Testament by Kenneth Wuest 1961 Pages 142-148.)
KENNETH WUEST: “...Trench says: [ ἄλλος ]'Allos is numerically distinct ... being of the same character ... But [ ἕτερος ] heteros, ... superadds the notion of qualitative difference'... In summing up the difference between these two words we offer the following: [ ἕτερος ] Heteros means "another of a differen't kind," [ ἄλλος ] allos "another of the same kind." [ ἕτερος ] Heteros denotes qualitative difference, [ ἄλλος ] "allos numerical difference...” - (Weusts Word Studies - Studies in the Vocabulary of the Greek New Testament for the English Reader in the Greek New Testament by Kenneth Wuest 1961 Pages 142-148.)
MARVIN VINCENT: “...Another [ ἄλλος ] (allos) means more than one with all being of the same like character or a different one in the character of the first. The following are from Vine's. [ ἕτερος ] Heteros is never used in reference to the Trinity: ANOTHER [ ἄλλος ] indicates numeral distinction of objects of similar character, ... Another [ ἕτερος ] (heteros) means more than one with all being of a different character or a different one not of the same character as the first: OTHER [ἕτερος] indicates either numerical distinction, e.g., Luke 4:43; 5:7; or generic distinction, different in character, etc.,..." - (Marvin Vincent's Word Studies In The Greek NT.)
W. E. VINE: “...ANOTHER [ ἄλλος ] allos [ ἕτερος ] heteros have a difference in meaning, which despite a tendency to be lost, is to be observed in numerous passages. [ ἄλλος ] Allos expresses a numerical difference and denotes "another of the same sort;" [ ἕτερος ] heteros expresses a qualitative difference and denotes "another of a different sort..." - (Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words.)
A. T. ROBINSON: "...[ ἄλλος ] (allon ...). Another of like kind [ ἄλλος ] (allon, not [ ἕτερος ] eteron )..." - (Robertson's Word Pictures In The New Testament.)
I ask the question how much of this tampering has gone on?
How much has slipped under the radar?
How many texts have been quietly edited in back rooms that scholars felt uncomfortable with which have pssed into the texts today un-detected! Successfully! Without anybody knowing a thing?
Certainly food for thought.
