Jn 2:4 γύναι: JK Gayle on BLT blog

I don't think anybody is fully comfortable with his/her understanding of the "tone" of γύναι in Jesus' response to his mother in John's narrative of the Wedding at Cana. J.K. Gayle has an interesting blog entry on it this morning:

οὔτοι ἀπ’ ἀρχῆς πάντα θεοὶ θνητοῖς ὑπέδειξαν,
ἀλλὰ χρόνῳ ζητέοντες ἐφευρίσκουσιν ἄμεινον. (Xenophanes, Fragment 16)
