Question about Acts
I hope my question does not take the discussion two steps backward but I'll
fire it off anyhow.
I am studying Paul's speech to the Athenians for a class project. In Acts
17:25 the two words "prosdeomenos tinos" are translated by the NRSV as, ". .
. as though he needed anything. . . " The NIV translates it, ". . . as if
he needed anything. . ." Are there grammer rules that govern the
translation of this as an 'aside' or is it taken from the context?
Thank you for your time,
St. Paul, MN
