Dear Kevin,

It would seam to me that there is general agreement here that the
participles in question do relate to means. To add the nuance of a time
distinction between the two may be going beyond what was intended by the
author and the original language. We, I think, can safely say both were a
processes that were to be on-going, but which was to occur first seams to
strain the language's abilities in this construction.

Maybe one of the big-Greekers will confirm this.

Sola Gratia,
