The text...καὶ φωτίσαι [πάντας] τίς ἡ οἰκονομία τοῦ μυστηρίου τοῦ ἀποκεκρυμμένου ἀπὸ τῶν αἰώνων ἐν τῷ θεῷ τῷ τὰ πάντα κτίσαντι

My question is about the direct question in the nominative case introduced by the interrogative τίς

I would expect that this completes the thought of what Paul is illuminating but would expect it to be like the textually disputed PAS and be in the accusative case. Is this an example of some construction I should have learned? I have noted that on some of the more puzzling texts, neither Wallace or Robertson address it.

Any insight would be greatly appreciated,

Any insight? Well, I came to realize this morning that our country is deeply politically divided...

Oh, you mean any insight about Eph 3:9? :)

It's simply an indirect question based on φωτίσαι, nominative because the verb, if expressed would be ἐστίν.
