<DIV><FONT color=#000000 face="Times New Roman">I would like to see some
discussion on Luke 22:20. The NASB translates:</FONT></DIV>
<P>Luke 22:20</P>
<P>20 And in the same way <I>He took </I>the cup after they had eaten, saying,
<FONT color=#ff0000>&quot;This cup which is poured out for you is the new
covenant in My blood.</P></FONT></DIV>
<DIV><FONT color=#000000 face="Times New Roman">They say that the Greek grammar
makes it the &quot;cup&quot; that is &quot;poured out.&quot; I have looked at
the Greek and see what I think is their reasoning. I wonder if any of the
scholars on the list could show why it is not necessarily so.</FONT></DIV>
<DIV><FONT color=#000000 face="Times New Roman"></FONT>&nbsp;</DIV>
<DIV><FONT face="Times New Roman">In my opinion, two reasons cause me to reject
the necessity of translating it so (three if my prejudice, be included): 1) the
fact that the cup was drunk, not poured out. His blood was poured out (Bible
interpreting the Bible); and 2) the vast number of translations in which it is
not translated that way.</FONT></DIV>
<DIV><FONT color=#000000 face="Times New Roman"></FONT>&nbsp;</DIV>
<DIV><FONT color=#000000 face="Times New Roman">Does the grammar allow the verse
to be translated either way?</FONT></DIV>
<DIV><FONT color=#000000 face="Times New Roman"></FONT><FONT
face="Times New Roman">In translating the Bible, how much must one rely on the
whole context (verse, paragraph, chapter, book, etc.)?</FONT></DIV>
<DIV><FONT face="Times New Roman"></FONT>&nbsp;</DIV>
<DIV><FONT face="Times New Roman">Thanks!&nbsp;</FONT></DIV>
