τοῦτο δὲ καὶ ἀπὸ τῆς ἐν σώματι καθάπαξ ἐνεργείας αὐτῆς φανερώτερον ἄν τις ἴδοι. It is every difficult for me to see this as other than an adverbial use modifying the verbal action implied in ἐνεργείας. This would be the natural way to read it, but context may contraindicate this, as your translator ...

I'm having trouble understanding the construction of ὧν τὸ τέλος ἀπώλεια in verse 19. How should the clause with the genitive relative pronoun be translated? I'm unclear on how that genitive is used.

reading πάντες leaves one wondering "honor what or who?" πάντες is nominative (so subject), τιμήσατε verb in imperative, and τὴν ἀδελφότητα accusative (so direct object). => So, we would have : Let everyone honor the brotherwood Do you see from Jason's post why this won't work? The structure here i...

Paul gives another hint in Galatians 6:11 Ἴδετε πηλίκοις ὑμῖν γράμμασιν ἔγραψα τῇ ἐμῇ χειρί. When he writes in his own hand, he does it in really big letters. Perhaps because he had problems with his eyes? Due to the discovery of manuscripts which do this, the general consensus is that it was done ...
