Function of fronting αὐτοῦ in Joh 3,21

Postby Peter Streitenberger » November 27th, 2013, 7:44 am

Dear friends,

what is the effect of putting αὐτοῦ before its Referent "τὰ ἔργα":

John 3:21 Ὁ δὲ ποιῶν τὴν ἀλήθειαν ἔρχεται πρὸς τὸ φῶς, ἵνα φανερωθῇ αὐτοῦ τὰ ἔργα, ὅτι ἐν θεῷ ἐστιν εἰργασμένα.

Is it possible to translate this Feature? Maybe "his own deeds" or something similar? Then, additionally, how can the "truth" be done? Is it rather: to act according to truth?

Thanks for all help !
