Re: John 15:4 MEINATE EN EMOI?

I take the "EN" of John 14:4 as a Dative of Association or Unity due to
the 15:4b reference to the branches remaining EN the vine (association).

Wes...I'm not sure if there is a dative of association...but I know that
the concept is closely related to the "locative of sphere," in which the
EN is found in 164X in Paul's letter (D&M 106).
I don't know of any reference to the EN being in the dative in the
NT...but I'm a novice...
