JAMES 1:12 MAKARIOS ANHR hOS hUPOMENEI PEIRASMON, hOTI DOKIMOS
GENOMENOS LHMYETAI TON STEFANON THS ZWHS hON EPHGGEILATO TOIS
This verse is easy enough to read, but I am wondering if there is
more than one way DOKIMOS GENOMENOS might be analyzed. In light of
our recent discussion of fronted participle clauses, would we see
DOKIMOS GENOMENOS as a temporal clause describing a process that must
take place or perhaps a state that must be attained prior to LHMYETAI
TON STEFANON ... ?
Another question, does the nominative participle clause fill a
syntactical slot in the following clause? Is it the subject of
LHMYETAI or is the subject of DOKIMOS GENOMENOS coreferential with
the subject of LHMYETAI?
