Is anyone on the list familiar with the Granville Sharp construction?
(article + substantive + KAI + substantive)
Substantives must agree.
Example: TOUS...POIMENAS KAI DIDASKALOUS, "the shepherds, that is, teachers"
Shepherds and teachers are referring to the same group, with "teachers"
being a further description of "shepherds".
This is a rule of construction that I have been taught in Seminary. What
think ye? Is it legitimate? The rule is much more involved than what I have
stated, but this is the basis of it.
