I too have been studying the divorce/remarriage issue. I wish I could get
access to Ward Powers’ doctoral dissertation. But could I get a reply on the
following (please forgive my Greek):

1. In Matt 19:1-9, two different words are discussed. APOLUO and
APOSTASION. I never find Jesus condemning an APOSTASION. Is it possible, in
the Greek, that Jesus (Matt 19:9) only has a problem if the person only has
an APOLUO without the APOSTASION?
2. Can APOLUO in verse 9 be considered a synonym of APOSTASION of the
earlier verses?
