Re: John 1:17 HUGE possible difference in interpretation

John 1:6 Questions about the participle ἀπεσταλμένος

Hi! So as far as I know this hasn't been posted yet on the forums... On gntreader.com John 1:6 reads as "Ἐγένετο ἄνθρωπος ἀπεσταλμένος παρὰ θεοῦ, ὄνομα αὐτῷ Ἰωάννης·" From an overall view of the text, it is very clear what the text is saying.
