Granville Sharp

Those who have taken Greek are familiar with the Granville Sharp rule or construction. Dan Wallace in his Greek Grammar Beyond the Basics spends 21 pages discussing this construction. In any case, Granville Sharp was born today in 1735. You can read a bit more about his fascinating life here.

Is it "Sharp" or "Sharpe"? I thought it was the former.

Sharp is correct. I got the name right in the body of the post. Strangely, I recall double-checking the name but I guess that I didn't check closely enough. Thanks for catching this. Least I could do is get the guy's name on his birthday!
