    Plummer, in his commentary on Luke argues that the
rendeirng one finds in English versions of MKKROTEROS
in Luke 7:28 err because they take it as a
superlative. Plummer argues that it should simply be
seen as a comparative,which is what it is by form.
Friberg renders it as a superlative "least," but
Plummer argues for taking it as "lesser than others in
the kindgdom," which does take the form seriously.
Any thgouhts on whether Plummer is right versus other
renderings in English? Thanks.
