<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2><FONT size=2>My question concerns the scripture
verse in Luke 1:15 in which it says "he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost,
even from his mother's womb." My question is since the Greek word here for from
is EK which means "<STRONG><EM>out of</EM></STRONG>" does this not imply that
the child was filled "out of his mothers womb" instead of in his mothers womb as
many commentaries and theologians suggest. Is this a mistaken case of semantics
that is over looked because it's of little significance to any doctrinal
statement? My thought is that possibly he was filled after he was born or
"<STRONG><EM>out of </EM></STRONG>" the womb. We know he was not filled as they
were on the day of Pentecost for John 7:39 provides this proof. Can anyone
elaborate on this please?</FONT></FONT></DIV>

the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost

translation&nbsp;of the text in question, I just wondered if is a correct
translation of the verse.</FONT></DIV>

mother's womb", as the Syriac, Arabic, and Persic versions render it: like
Jeremiah, he was sanctified, set apart, and ordained to be the prophet of the
Highest, before he came out of his mother's womb; and was then under such an
influence of the Spirit of God, as to leap in it for joy, at the salutation of
the mother of Christ to his, and very early appeared to have the extraordinary
gifts and graces of the Holy Ghost, qualifying him for his work. </DIV>
