How should we understand the strong double negative: hO MH
 which Jesus used in such passages such as Mt 18:3?  I'm preaching on this
section in a month, and I've discovered this device more than once in the
NT....could we say "not not"?  There has to be a way to describe it to the
congregation which surpasses the typical "never" translation....thanks for
the help!
