@PatFerguson again, be careful not to use English translations as your primary means of understanding the underlying Greek text.

comment When was Jesus's body 'broken'?
Hey Peter, do keep in mind that Strong's is a concordance, not a lexicon. Your source is likely relying on another lexicon that they have keyed to Strong's. See meta.hermeneutics.stackexchange.com/a/642/423

Hello @McGafter and welcome to BH.SE! Please edit your response to summarize the argument(s) from the book. As it stands, this is more of a comment than an actual answer. Also, consider citing some more modern sources in addition to this book since numerous textual discoveries and linguistic findings have been made since Burgon's death in the late 19th century. Textual evidence that does not take into account recent findings would be a weak argument otherwise.

comment How should πονηρός be translated in Matthew 7:11, and why?
Strong's is a concordance, not a lexicon. Your resource must be using Strong's to link to another lexicon. Be sure to check out meta.hermeneutics.stackexchange.com/a/642/423 to learn more about reliable, scholarly, up-to-date Greek-English lexica.

I don't know why this didn't occur to me. It seems blatant now that I'm looking at it. Thanks!
