Hello David and Carl ~

This is my first posting to b-greek...

Perhaps the idea of crescendo might help, as the avalanche of
intensity builds from 9:1 to the AMHN in 9:5.

KATA SARKA is introduced in 9:3 describing the Israelites, then
reappears in 9:5 with TO as an emphatic that gives it much greater
power as an attribution of the Christ. I think Paul might write like
he talks, and if that is true, reading him aloud, as a orator almost,
in the Greek, could be helpful...
