Eureka! Search for Anarthrous Terms
I have spent way too long on this, but I finally got it to work. I want to share this with the forum in hopes of getting some feed back on it.
My goal was to find all the anarthrous occurrences of θεος in the NT even when another occurrence of θεος was articular. After much hairpulling and doodling and trying this and that, I managed to get a single ASE query to give the results. Adelphos published a query a while back attempting to do the same thing, but it only returned the verses where only an anarthrous θεος appeared and no articular θεος appeared at the same time. This left out verses like Luke 20:37 where θεος appears in a form that is both anarthrous and articular.
The result is that there are (according to this query) 241 verses that have an anarthrous θεος.
This should be usable to find any substantive that is anarthrous.
If you find something I missed let me know.
3/30/2006: I removed the query I made, because, as Charlie said, it didn't work...and it was so complicated that I knew it had to be right!
