I've been searching through the b-greek digest for July 5 and can find
absolutely nothing that would generate this question, nor is it clear what
passage you are speaking of. May I urge that respondents to a message read
in a digest pay attention to the relevance of the header to the message
they are sending.
But could you be referring to:
MH YEUDESQE EIS ALLHLOUS
APEKDUSAMENOI TON PALAION...
KAI ENDUSAMENOI TON NEON...
IF that's the passage you mean, then it seems to me that the context makes
pretty clear that the behavior exhorted in verses 8 and 9 is based on the
assumption that one has already sloughed TON PALAION and donned TO NEON;
the aorist of PERIEPATHSATE POTE in 7 and the imperfect EZHTE EN TOUTOIS
would seem to characterize these behaviors as characteristic of one's
7 EN hOIS KAI hUMEIS PERIEPATHSATE POTE, hOTE EZHTE EN TOUTOIS 8 NUNI DE
