I am just beginning my Syntax studies in Greek and have a simple question about 1 Pet 1:1. Are the words EKLEKTOIS PAREPIDDHMOIS in apposition?. I am understanding EKLEKTOIS to be an adjective and PAREPIDHMOIS to be a noun, but the modification seems unnecessary and leads to questions about how PARAPIDHMOIS could be related to the rest of the clause- especially hAMATOS.
The second part of my question is probably not as simple: If these words are in apposition, what is the relationship of them to KATA PROGNWSIN, etc? How do I understand and describe this relationship? Are both datives related to/dependent on (what would be the word?) KATA PROGNWSIN QEOU?
I am beginning to use Porter and Wallace and if there are sections that will supplement your answers please direct me to them.
