**Esteemed Scholars:

I am puzzled about DE in John 8:17.  It seems to me that the verse would 
be translated the same with or without it. I'm afraid this is a silly 
question, but can someone tell me why DE is there? Is it translated AND 
or But with KAI being translated as ALSO?  That would make sense to me, 
but I still wonder why it is needed.

John 8:17: καὶ ἐν τῷ νόμῳ δὲ τῷ ὑμετέρῳ γέγραπται ὅτι δύο ἀνθρώπων ἡ 
μαρτυρία ἀληθής ἐστιν.
KAI EN TWi NOMWi DE TWi hUMETERWi GEGRAPTAI hOTI DUO ANQRWPWN hH 
MARTURIA ALHQHS ESTIN.

Thanks,

Marilyn Phemister
