[b-greek] Re: What To Do With PNEUMATIKOS

Article + Adjective in the Genitive = Substantive use = used as a Noun ----

Shouldn't the Article then play a role in the translation also?
         "the of the Spirit [noun] things" -- "the things of the Spirit"
OR "the Spirit's things"

Context addressing the things the Spirit does is chpts. 12-14 -- "there are
different administrations" which include more than CHARISMATA. One major
'thing' is AGAPE in chpt.13. "Now concerning the Spirit's work" could be a
translation that reflects all these things.
