Rev 3.7

Greetings to co-b-greekers & Rev-listers:

I have a question about Rev 3.7, the description of Christ as hO ALHTHINOS
in the message to Philadelphia. I have seen it interpreted as a modifier of
the preceding hO hAGIOS, Christ as "the truly holy one" (can an adjective
function adverbially, in this way?), or as the bringer and bearer of reality
(in contrast to pre-messianic shadow), or as a reference to the moral
integrity of Christ ("the authentic One")

-is it gramatically feasible that ALHTHINOS could modify hAGIOS (can the
adjective have that adverbial force, or must it be nominalized just like hO

-what is the best interpretation of the double title of 3.7b?

Many thanks, Juan Stam, Costa Rica
