Dear Bradley,

>Do you see any grammatical connection between APOKALUYIS and hA, or is
>that purely a logical connection?

HH: Thanks for asking. I really don't see a connection. There is already a
relative pronoun whose antecedent is APOKALUYIS earlier in the verse, hHN.
It is feminine singular. Why would the author then switch to neuter plural
in the next reference back to APOKALUYIS? It seems unlikely. It appears
better to equate hA with APOKALUYIS conceptually the way you did.
