Hello all,

I have a couple questions on 1 John 4:13;15

1. Can someone explain what the significance of EK TOU PNEUMATOS AUTOU?
The preposition EK is referred to as being partitive and I am not sure
what that would mean. Is it something like "He has given to us a part
from the His Holy Spirit?"

2. Is the hOS EAN in v.15 a conditional clause dependent on v.15b? Some
translations say "whomever confesses" and others "if anyone." Are they
saying the same thing?
