Charles' conclusion was merely the affirmation that the conclusion of others'
was/is correct. When specific grammatical evidence is introduced, then a
grammatical discussion can proceed. Until such time, we are simply adding
"voices" to one side or the other.

That one could consider the concept non-Johannine in light of John 1:18,
20:17, and a host of other Johannine texts is something I would say is the
result of a particular theological construct. But just as there was no value
in introducing such thoughts in the first place, there is no value in my
continuing this type of theological back-and-forth beyond giving my simple
objections this one and final time.

Of course, off-list discussions of Johannine theology are always welcome...
