I only dare to respond to this because it is tagged with grammar and linguistics. I am fairly comfortable with that. Here are the lines you are asking about. Mt 6:10 Γενηθἠτω τὸ θέλημἀ σου, ὡς ἐν οὐρανῷ καὶ ἐπὶ γῆς Be the will of you, as in heaven even on earth That is a terrible translation, but it is as literal as I can get. Good translations can be ...

It is an awkward way to put a fairly simple fact. This awkwardness gave rise to textual variations in an attempt to make it easier. Let's put it in context. He was teaching one day to pharisees scribes from all the towns of Galilee, Judah and Jerusalem. (17 last part) And the lord had power for him to heal.

The Greek sentence in Luke 5:17 reads (NA28/UBS5 etc): καὶ δύναμις Κυρίου ἦν εἰς τὸ ἰᾶσθαι αὐτόν = (literally) and power of [the] Lord was for(in) to heal him.

I checked A.T. Robertson, and he said Sharp's rule cannot be applied here. A.T. Robertson's grammar is older than Daniel Wallace. Daniel Wallace's grammar critics older grammars as being too mechanical about applying grammar rules. Normally he would tend to support Robertson's claim. However, Robertson's argument depends on proper names. In the Kingdom of ...

I am seeking a strictly grammatical answer. Sharp's rule discriminates between proper and common nouns; as such, given Judaism's belief in only one God, and Christianity's belief in only one Christ, it is unclear to which of the two categories these two words belong. If a class has only one element, is that one element a proper or a common noun ? This is ...
