Murray Harris on Grammarians and Lexicographers

"our great God and Savior," and he notes that this is "a verdict shared, with varying degrees of assurance, by almost all grammarians and lexicographers, many commentators, and many writers on NT theology or Christology, although there are some dissenting voices." (p. 185).

Murray Harris is only trying to defend Titus 2:13 here.
Check exact context!

Brian has a habit of placing in quotes (like the one from Christopher Wordsworth about thousands of phantom references) that he must know, or at least suspect, are specious or even totally false. It looks impressive and helps dupe those not familiar with the material, like John Milton. Here Harris amazingly lists Winer as the only grammarian in footnote 54! Even Daniel Wallace bemoaned the many grammarians who agreed with Winer, who Wallace tried to paint as the grammatical bogey-man. (Wallace was following an earlier Sharpian in this portrayal, it was not an original attempt.)

There is lots of info from Ezra Abbot, Huther, and others that would give him more grammarians and large numbers of additional excellent commentaries (not just “some”.)

By the grace of the Lord Jesus I plan to show some of this corrective info shortly.

This is a bit of a project.
Let’s start with the grammarians marshaled by Murray Harris, against the supposedly lone Winer.

In this small group, some are questionable as grammarians, about 3 are heavy-duty Sharpians and three immediately have qualifiers like “probably”, which indicates that Murray Harris was struggling.

Winer, Smyth, Goodwin are not seen.
