Hello B-Greek List,
I have a question regarding 1 Cor. 6:11. There Paul speaks of some one being
washed. He says; "But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified
in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God". The question
I have is regarding the verb [apelousasthe] you were washed.
According to Fee in his commentary this is actually a "true" middle translated
as a passive. To his credit he at least deals with this verse. But my question
why is this middle translated as a passive?
I wish I could make this sound more exegetically sophisticated.
Thanks in advance. This list has been very helpful.
