Dear Prof. Krentz,
Looking at the text a second time, the phase is ". . .mh pobhqeis
paralabein Mariam thn gunaika sou." I do not see the word "home" as
you wrote above. Secondly, I noticed that Latin leaves out the word
'as' in many instances also. Cicero advocatus: Cicero 'as' lawyer.
Thus, Greek as well as Latin seems to allow for an understood ws. I
could back this up with numerous citiations if you like.
Peace and Love,
Timothy T. Dickens
