Shalom to all,
Question: How common is it for "ta tekna" (nominative plural) to be used
generically to refer to the state of being young regardless of number? I
know in English we may say that "They have children" even though they may
only have one, in some cases, but that the usual use of "children" iw two
or more. How does that work in Greek, and what are some New Testament
and/or secular examples? Thanks! Baruch atem Edonai, Matthew.
