Dr. Conrad:

There are places where you would expect an indefinite
article in the NT if writers in general considered it
an option (even though a noun may be considered
indefinite by itself). Hebrews 1:2 comes immediately
to mind where it seems that rather than prophets, God
has now spoke to us EN hUIWi, through a son. Why do we
find so few usages of the indefinite article? It seems
like such an indispensible part of English, which is
probably why I'm so bewildered at the Koine, or any
language for that matter.
