I have a question regarding John 4:23; specifically the last half of the
verse, which reads, TOIOUTOUS ZHTEI TOUS PROSKUNOUNTAS AUTON. is the verbal
or substantival aspect of the participle more in force here?  In other
words, does the grammar and syntax lend itself more to a rendering of
".such as those to worship him." or, rather awkwardly, ".such as those
worshiping him."  Also, how is TOUS PROSKUNOUNTAS functioning in 4:24?

Thanks for your help,
