Sorry about the garbled post, I wasn't finished writing it and accidentally
sent it. The first paragraph should read:

I am having difficulty with with MALLON H. Normally, it means "more than;"
however, acc. to BAGD, it should be translated as "rather than" when
preceded by a negative. The tricky part is BAGD notes the negative can be
"unexpressed, though easily supplied fr. the context" Two of his examples
have confused me (Jn 3:19, 12:43). I checked out the use of AGAPAW +
MALLON H (HPER) and found that perhaps BAGD was hasty in classifying these
two passages as exclusionary (rather than). For instance:
