Hello all,
th xariti in Ephesians 2:8 is in the dative case (feminine singular). I
understand the dative case to have the following main functions in koine
Greek: 1) to indicate the indirect object of a verb 2) to indicate
location in a circumscribed area, not moving into or out of 3)
occasionally to indicate possession in place of the genetive. My
questions are: have I overlooked any function, and what is the function in
this verse? Thanks! Matthew R. Miller
