Ok. I got it. But George Blaisdell thinks EXHRAMMENHN is clearly
His decisions would force him to render Mk 3.1 as
" There was there a man having his withered hand."
But this sounds akward. As long as we take THN CEIRA as THN hEAUTOU CEIRA,
I think there is NO WAY to take the participle EXHRAMMENHN as attributive.
Thanks for your clarification.
