Dear fellow students,

I was reading Romans 8:28, and could not determine the subject of the verb
sunergei (3rd person singular), with much confidence. It seems that panta (neuter plural) can be accusative or nominative. The options seem to be:
1) Take panta to be nominative, and, therefore, the subject of sunergei - a case of a neuter plural subject taking a singular verb. (like KJV, NRSV translators did)
2) Take panta to be accusative, and identify the implied subject. (like NIV, NASB translators did) 

Any thoughts?
