If Granville Sharp's rule applies here (and I think that it does) then the
fact that these two nouns are under one article (even though they are plural
nouns) should go a long way toward identifiying the two as descriptions or
functions of one person. The front slash should be right (pastor/teacher).

Can you tell definitively from the Greek if the ministry gifts in Eph 4 are
five-fold (apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor, teacher) as is most often
translated, or if the pastor and teacher are actually combined
(pastor/teacher) as some assert?  Thank you for your help.
