PRWTH in Lk 2:2

Date: Sat Sep 26 1998 - 00:15:16 EDT

Denny Diehl here with a question concerning

PRWTH as used in Lk 2:2:


usually translated: "This was the first census taken..."

In Jn 15:18, PRWTON is translated "before". Is it possible
to translate PRWTH in Lk 2:2 with "before" making it:

"This was before the census taken..."?

Or is it too awkward to translate it that way? Thank you.
