I will limit my reply to your question, is "in your (pl) midst" a [grammatically]&nbsp;
acceptable translation"&nbsp; for ENTOS&nbsp; hUMWN?&nbsp; The simple answer
is Yes.&nbsp; You might want to consult works such as "The New Linguistic
and Exegetical Key to the Greek New Testament," by Rogers and Rogers, or
the lexicons of Bauer, Gingrich and Danker, or Thayer, among others.

religious beliefs, is "in your midst" an acceptable translation?&nbsp;
The reason i say this is because if it is translated "inside of you" it
gives the idea that the Kingdom of God is a heart condition which i sincerely
don't feel fits the context of the passage and how you(plural) is relating
to the Pharisees as the subject.&nbsp; I don't even know if i am writing
to the correct place but i would much appreciate a clarification.</font></span><span
