TAUTA EGRAYA hUMIN
hINA EIDHTE hOTI ZWHN ECETE AIWNION
EIS TO ONOMA TOU hUIOU TOU QEOU
ZWHN and AIWNION are separated by the verb. Is it the way Gk writes? Is it
possible to write hOTI ZWHN AIWNION ECETE or hOTI ECETE ZWHN AIWNION?
Can I see ZWHN in the text is emphatic because it is in the front position?
Can hOTI clause be understood as 'that life you have (is) eternal' rather
than a plain expression 'that you have eternal life'?
Thanks for your help.
