και εγενετο εν τω ειναι αυτον προσευχομενον καταμονας συνησαν αυτω οι μαθηται
Luke 9:18 - TR (Stephens, Beza, Elzevir and Scrivener are all identical.)
And it came to pass, as he was alone praying, his disciples were with him: [KJV 1769]
Do the verbs ειναι, προσευχομενον and συνησαν tell us whether Jesus was in the same location as the disciples - he praying, they perhaps not - or do they imply that the disciples entered that location whilst Jesus was at prayer ?
It intrigues me that he could be in the same room, perhaps - or in the came location - and be praying whilst others were around him, yet not be disturbed by their presence.
'Alone' could mean that he alone was praying. Or it could mean he was alone, then others joined him.
What do the verbs imply ?
