2 Cor. 12:12
TA MEN SHMEIA TOU APOSTOLOU KATEIRGASQH EN hUMIN EN PASHi hUPOMONHi SHMEIOIS
TE KAI TERASIN KAI DUNAMESIN
I understand that grammatically you can translate this two different ways.
First, TA SHMEIA is further clarified by SHMEIOIS TE KAI TERASIN KAI
DUNAMESIN. Which would mean that TA SHMEIA and SHMEIOIS TE KAI TERASIN KAI
DUNAMESIN are describing the same phenomena.
However, TA SHMEIA may be understood to be "accompanied" with SHMEIOIS TE
KAI TERASIN KAI DUNAMESIN. In this instance, the "signs of the apostle"
could be understood as ABC (TA SHMEIA), and these TA SHMEIA were accompanied
by XYZ (SHMEIOIS TE KAI TERASIN KAI DUNAMESIN).
Some support for this latter understanding is 1 Cor. 12:28 – 30 where
APOSTOLOUS are distinguished from DUNAMEIS (which in 2 Cor 12:12 are a part
of the XYZ group, if one accepts it as separate from the ABC group....pardon
Can someone help me understand the grammatical strength and weakness of each
