Andrew,
> "PAULOS DE KAI BARNABAS DIETRIBON EN ANTIOCEIAi DIDASKONTES KAI EUAGGELIZOMENOI META KAI hETERWN POLLWN TON LOGON TOU KURIOU" (Acts 15:35).

> On reading this, it struck me that the "META KAI" was somewhat unusual, the "KAI" seeming 'redundant'. It appears that this combination is found only here and in Philippians 4:3 in the Greek New Testament. What about outside the G. N. T.? Is it just a question of style, or could there be an element of emphasis here?

HH: The only thought I had, and it may be worthless, is that KAI might 
clarify that the "many others" were agents rather than recipients of 
ministry.

Yours,
Harold Holmyard
