Sometimes if you comment in another browser window/tab you won't see it on the same post in another window/tab because of Javascript/Ajax sync issues. Refreshing the page always fixes it.

Hello, if you are using an encyclopedia or other source, you need to properly cite it. Otherwise it is plagiarism and will need to be removed. You've even left the reference to another article intact ("See Biblical cities, antiquity-").

Please don't "preach" at readers. Instead, describe your perspective without prescribing it. We're looking for lectures rather than sermons. Please keep in mind that not all of your readers here are Christians.

@Susan not necessarily. Any genitive referent would suffice, this is what the reader would have anticipated to find, but no referent is specified.

PS in addition to my answer, I recommend reading more of Knox. I had a hard time summarizing his and Best's ideas (Best's commentary is not free, unfortunately). There is a lot of excellent material, particularly the introductory material to the epistle in each work.

comment Romans 8:28 translation
it's not odd at all for a singular verb to take a neuter plural noun as the subject (it happens all the time, cf. BDF § 133: "Perhaps no syntactical peculiarity of Greek is more striking to us than the use of the singular verb with a neuter plural subject"). And no, not all verbs need a visible subject, hence why some use 'God' as the subject which would be implied (or they are using the textual variant).

Please don't "preach" at readers. Instead, describe your perspective without prescribing it. We're looking for lectures rather than sermons. Please keep in mind that not all of your readers here are Christians. I've made some edits to focus this somewhat, but this answer could still benefit from some additional sources discussing how the original hearers would have understood it. Keep in mind that we stop short of applying the text to modern religious groups.
