hORATE TOINUN hOTI EX ERGWN DIKAIOUTAI ANQRWPOS
KAI OUK EK PISTEWS MONON
This last phrase is often given the translation:
"and not by faith only (alone)"
I note that MONON is either an adj. or adv. depending
on how it functions in a sentence, right?
Well, MONON does not seem to be in the proper form
to be an adj. here (MONHS??); rather it appears to be an adv.
If an adv., should we not undertand an implied verb?
The last phrase would then be:
"and not only (justified) by faith."
To me, James seems to be contrasting TWO kinds
of DIKAIOU... One is works based; the other is faith based.
Is this the surface level meaning to this verse?
