One obvious thing I failed to mention is that translating the neuter TO
QEION ESTIN and the following AUTO as neuter in English is not a given
by any means. I didn't mean to imply that every time you see AUTO you
need to render it IT. This would be a rather wooden headed approch to
things. What I am really trying to find out more than anything is what
can be made of TO QEION ESTIN?
