In regards to the greek text from Acts 2:38--
METANOHSATE, [FHSIN,] KAI BAPTISQHTW hEKASTOS hUMWN EPI TWi ONOMATI IHSOU
XRISTOU EIS AFESIN TWN hAMARTIWN hUMWN
Why do you think the King James editors put a comma after the word repent?
What effect does it have on the sentence if the sentence was diagramed?
Here it is in the KJV:
"Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the
name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift
of the Holy Ghost."
I am, by the way, new to this post but have already enjoyed the letters.
I had one quarter of Koine Greek under Harvey Floyd at David Lipscomb University (1977) and
intend to attempt this wonderful language again.
