The first part of Rev.3:12 reads as follows;
hO NIKWN, POIHSW AUTON STULON EN TWi VAWi TOU QEOU MOU,
I understand from Wallace's GGBB that this is a case of pendent nominative.
Besides this text he gives several other examples.
I found that the other examples read almost naturally correct but not this
When I first read this (I came to a dead stop but then) I wanted to read the
nominative in apposition to the implied verb: "I, the one who conquers, will
make him a pillar in the temple of my God."
This is likely due to the proximity of the nominative and the verb.
Is there such a thing as an apposition to an implied verb or would the verb
have to be expressed?
Another way to ask my question; Reading this sentence without context, is my
initial translation also possible?
