Re: Infinitive Subjects of ἐγένετο

At any rate, I think the place to look for discourse markers is generally on the left edge, and so I would consider καὶ ἐγένετο (Mark) or έγένετο δέ (Luke) to be a kind of discourse marker signaling a later unit in the narrative.

Let me dump some data on you and ask some questions ... Here are the examples I found with this query - I will ask some questions in the n...

In original word in Hebrew says "slaves", which in Hebrew means primarily male slaves, but also male-and-female slaves (in Hebrew, if you use a plural masculine form it may reffer to masculine only, but also to both male...
