Speaking of ambiguity, consider my first question a
good example of just that, unintentionally. After
reading some of the replies, I actually would now like
to ask yet another question.

Is there a different preposition phrase, that can be
substituted for DIA PISTEWS, that would remove the
ambiguity (so that it would be either a Subjective or
Objective meaning)? Rather than completely changing a
nominal (DIA PISTEWS) expression into a verbal one (as
some examples pointed out), could Tertius have used EN
or PROS or EIS plus a Genitive or Accusative? If so,
I've got to believe that the ambiguity was intentional.
