Greetings to all,

The text: QEON OUDEIS hEWRAKEN PWPOTE MONOGENHS QEOS hO WN EIS TON KOLPON TOU PATROS EKEINOS EXHGHSATO.

Assuming that the reading above is to be preferred, how would you understand the referent of EKEINOS? Is it God with respect to his essence (in view of the anarthrous QEON) that MONOGENHS QEOS "explained" or is it more strictly speaking, the Father that was explained? It could be the Father specifically since John writes about EIS TON KOLPON TOU PATROS

Regards,

Edgar
