reads, "And as also when there is no article before the first noun, the
insertion of the copulative kai before the next noun, or name, of the same
case, denotes a different person or thing from the first
A number of his given examples don't seem to work: for example, Ephesians
4:6 --- eis yeos kai pathr. Is not YEOS an identity with PATHR? How could
they be the forcedly distinct, as the 5th rule seems to say.?
But the biggie to me is 1 Tim. 1:1 --- YEOS SWTHROS HMWN KAI KAI XRISTOU
IHSON . . .
YEOS SWTHROS is two nouns in the genitive with neither article nor
copulative for either? Maybe my problem is with confusion with what genitive
means, both here and following:
And then the SWTHROS it seems to me should be the same as XRISTOU IHSON, as
GS #1 gives in the case of 2 Peter 1:1 and Titus 2:something.
Just what is "YEOS SWTHROS?" Really one noun, in effect?
