I have sent this message to b-greek before, but have not received
satisfactory answers. I hope I may send it to you for comment?!
I have been reading in 1 Cor 7 concerning marriage, divorce, etc. v27
DEDESAI GUNAIKI MH ZHTEI LUSIN LELUSAI APO GUNAIKOS MH ZETEI GUNAIKA
V28. EAN DE KAI GAMHSHiS OUX hHMARTES . . .
I understand that LELUSAI is Perfect M/P Indicative, and that the Perfect
tense denotes a present condition based upon a past action. This then would
mean that the person spoken about here was once bound, got loosed and is
still loosed. Which comes to my question. Does Paul in the context, based on
v28 then say that a person that were divorced/loosed can then get married
again? Theologically I have always believed, once divorced never to remarry
again. But, plain theology is not the issue here. What do you guys say about
the text here?
I will appreciate any comments here.
