>>So, are we not safe in saying that 'equality with God' is not the
subject of the articulated, 'preposition-less' copulative infinitive
TO EINAI at Php 2:6? (As the anarthrous phrase >>ISA THEOi<< stands
in the text, it functions as the infinitive's predicate adjective.)<<
I had a slight difficulty following some of the words, but is the
following what your question is?
1) "he gave thought to no usurpation, namely that he should be equal
2) "he gave no thought that equality with God should be a usurpation"
1) is preferred to 2) because "equality with God" is not the subject
of eimi, but rather the object?
