So now you argue for a group of fantasy apologists besides the ones specifically mentioned in the OP.
I said they were WRONG. You responded to my post by saying they were not wrong.
Now you change your position and agree with me…only so you can disagree.
No internal consistency at all.
It is likely that the OP was confused or misinformed by a fellow CAF poster, but you have been around long enough to know that Catholic apologists do not say there is “no word for cousin in Greek or in scripture.”
I have heard that line many times. It is a staple of Catholic apologetics.
As another poster already said, the apologists claim there is no word for cousin in** Aramaic**. If you claim there is word for cousin in Aramaic, please post it. The apologists do say there is a Greek word for cousin. They are not wrong.
Of course, you know full well that I nowhere was discussing Aramaic…and neither was the OP.
Anepsios is NOT the word used in Luke 1:36 which YOU gave as an example of the word cousin in scripture.
That is not the example I gave.
That is the example that repected, official Catholic translations give.
If you have a problem with that, take it up with them, not me. Don’t blame me if your church’s own translationa have made such a blunder.
You were wrong to use it as an example. Elizabeth is NOT a cousin according to the Greek, she is simply a kinswoman or a relative.
How do all these Catholic translators get it wrong but you get it perfectly right?
Are you more educated than they?
Again, don’t blame me. I can only repeat Catholic teaching. You don’t have to like it.
