It is my understanding that they merely refer to the same thing, not that
they are identical. Epexegetical implies that it further explains or gives
another description of the same thing. In other words they are loose
synonyms not strict synonyms.
Much like "Lord Jesus" both refer to the same person, but each describes
Him differently. In one sense "Lord" and "Jesus" are synonyms but in
another way they are not because they have different meanings.
