One of the things that makes this list so difficult and so nice is just
this issue. You cannot speak of grammar/semantic/morphological/text
critical issues of a text, ANY text regardless of its spiritual intent,
without in some way touching on what the text says and means. That's
true whether we are dealing with Plato, NT, Kavavy, or anything else.
The purpose of this list is to focus on the
grammar/semantic/morphological aspects and not the theology, but we can't
completely divorce those issues from the theology of the text either. It
is a matter of focus.
All of that to say that no apology was really necessary in my view.
