Dear Friends,

   I noticed on this list a number of comments on John 20:28 and Augustine's
commentary on this passage. It must be remembered nevertheless that while
Augustine was an excellent philosopher and theologian, he was illiterate in
the biblical languages of Hebrew and Greek (as was Thomas Aquinas later in
the thirteenth century) unlike his contemporary colleague, Jerome. I
sometimes wonder whether it is worthwhile to use Augustine in an area in
which he holds little or no authority from a grammatical point of view...no
offence to St.Augustine.
