Questions in Greek
Greek questions are written in 2 ways; each clearly indicates the type of answer expected to the questions.
Question includes: oux = no/not. This is used in a positive sentence – followed by something like: didn’t it? The expected answer is “Yes.”
I Corinthians 1:20: God made the wisdom of the world dull, didn’t He? - (yes.)
The Greek construction of this question must receive an affirmative answer: “Yes, that is correct: God made the wisdom of the world dull (foolish, not-acute, absurd, moronic).”
Question includes: me = no/not. This is used in a negative sentence – followed by something like: did it? The expected answer is “No.”
I Corinthians 9:8: I do not say (these-things) according to man, do I? – (no)….
Paul asks a question whereby the Greek construction indicates that the expected answer is “No: I am not saying these words in accordance with man (mankind, based on human guidelines, on the level of mankind without holy spirit-life, which is the fleshly viewpoint).”
