I've got a grammar question here.
In Luke 8:20, it is said of Jesus APHGGELH DE AUTW (And it was reported to him).
The construction of APHGGELH is singular, but does that assume a singular person
doing the reporting? OOW, if several people were saying it, would APHGGELH have
to take a plural form?
To complicate matters, most manuscripts add LEGONTWN (some further add OTI).
This is in the plural, thus answering my question--or so it appears.
But does the omission of LEGONTWN (saying) only make the plurality of the
speaker(s) less blatant, or remove all certainty? Any further speculation, of
course, should be confined to a different list.
