hO PATHR AGAPAi TON hUION KAI PANTA DEDWKEN EN THi XEIRI AUTOU
"The Father loves the Son and has given all (things) into his hands." My question is, and this is purely for the sake of understanding the grammar, could this be rendered as "The Father loves the Son and (loves) all (things) he has given into his hands"? That is, is it possible for PANTA to be a direct object of AGAPAi?
Now I realize that the sentence wouldn't quite make sense in this way, but I'm trying to understand the grammar, so I just want to understand whether or not this would be possible. For instance, if instead of PANTA this had read PANTAS, could it have been translated as, "The Father loves the Son and all those he has given into his hands"? For that mattter, as it is could it be translated as, "The Father loves the Son and each one he has given into his hands"?
As I try to think through this, it occurs to me that maybe DEDWKEN can't be subordinated to PANTA in the way I am asking, but I am very new to verbs (just finished the chapters on present active indicative) so I don't know what to look for here.
