I think DE is a significant connective in Gk discourse,
right? Why do about half of the twenty or so Eng
translations I checked *not* translate it in Luke 17:7? I
ask because it seems to me that when the translators ignore
the particle here, they weaken a more explicit connection
between Jesus' description of the unprofitable servant and
the apostles' request, "Increase our faith!" Making use of
the connective DE, I suggest an outline vv. 5-10 as follows:
"Increase our faith"
A. Faith's possibilities (mustard seed analogy)
B. Believer's responsibility (unprofitable servant analogy)
What DE ye think?
