I thought I had successfully appended a note to this message before it was
distributed to the list. As the concern of Yee is with a subject beyond the
specific narrow focus of B-Greek (although questions regarding Matthaean
texts using PNEUMA may well be addressed here for discussion individually),
I would urge list-members to respond to Yee's request for assistance with
resources off-list, please. This is not the place for a discussion of
Matthaean pneumatology as such. Thanks for your cooperation.
