Actually, I think this passage is fascinating.
Note 8:4: Paul appears to allude to the Hebrew Shema:
KAI hOTI OUDEIS QEOS EI MH hEIS
He then appears to take that very well known statement and expand it:
EX hOU TA PANTA KAI hHMEIS EIS AUTON,
DI' hOU TA PANTA KAI hHMEIS DI' AUTOU.
So, I think, FWIW, the parallelism and repeitition gives significant
emphasis not only to the prepositional phrases, but also on the subjects.
And, I think since this construction is so obviously done on purpose that
it lends considerable credance to thinking Paul IS actually expanding
I won't get into this anymore, other than to give credit to the
thought provoking article by N. T. Wright
