I copy and paste from the first paragraph of the conclusion to my Th.M.
thesis, "The Significance of the Anarthrous Predicate Nominative in John"
The use of the anarthrous predicate nominative in John is significant.
It is qualitative in 65 out of 74 occurrences, or 88% probability. When
the anarthrous predicate nominative precedes the verb it is
qualitatative in 50 of 53 occurrences, or 94% probability. When it
follows the verb the anarthrous predicate nominative is qualitative 13
of 19 occurrences, or 68%.
Paul, not the Apostle
Overcast and in the 50s. Blah, but who's complaining?
