MONOGENHS is more than an argument about translation, but one of root.
Does it come from MONOS + GENNAW (in some form) or from MONOS + GENOS
(kind)? Most today, so I have heard, say it from GENOS, making MONOGENHS
mean "one of a kind." This is opposition to the KJV "only begotten." It
was just something I threw on there for fun. :-)
Blessings be multiplied your way for bringing this up!
