The question is how to view the grammatical function of a nominative
substantive with a first- or second-person verb. For example, I Cor
10:17 has a clause hOI GAR PANTES EK TOU hENOS ARTOU METECOMEN.
Paul has elsewhere stated that he was of the tribe of Benjamin. Benjamin =
BN_YaMIN = southerner. This just proves it. He uses the equivalent of
"Y'all" in the 1st pl. :-) . Just kidding, folks.
Seriously though. Understanding this as the equivalent to "all of us" seems
entirely natural -- so much so that I wouldn't give it a second thought.
