I am puzzled by the use of the accusative THN QALASSAN in Matt 14:25 and of
the genitive THS QALASSHS in Matt 14:26. It seems to me that both verses
describes Jesus' walking (movement). Is there any syntactical explanation.
I am even more puzzled by the variant readings. If you notice several
manuscripts that have the accusative in Matt 14:25 have the genitive in
14:26 and and vice versa. One would expect an harmonization of the two
mentions of Jesus' walking on the sea, i.e., two accusatives or two genitive.
Can someone throw any light on this matter?
