Aaron,

The rules given in Granville Sharp's REMARKS ON THE
USES OF THE DEFINITE ARTICLE IN THE GREEK TEXT OF THE
NEW TESTAMENT are:

1. When two personal nouns of the same case are
connected by the copulative KAI, if the former has the
definitive article, and the latter has not, they both
relate to the same person.

2. If both nouns have the article, but not the
copulative, they relate to the same person.

3. If the first has the article, and the second has
not, and there is no copulative, they relate also to
the same person.

4. If the nouns are not personal, they relate to
different things or qualities

5. If personal nouns, of the same case, are connected
the copulative, and the first has not the article,
they relate to different persons

6. If they are connected by the copulative, and both
have the article, they relate also to different
persons.
