There was some confusion in my reading group about the use of EIS in
Philemon verse 6:
THS PISTEWS SOU ENERGHS GENHTAI EN EPIGNWSEI PANTOS AGATHOU TOU EN HMIN
EIS XRISTON (hope that transliterated right)
We noticed that in some English translations this is translated "in
Christ" (ie NIV) while others use "for Christ's sake" (ie NASB). What
in the greek grammer would send you to either meaning, or is it a
contextual issue not a grammatical one?
