John 19:25 - judge - 03-02-2009

I'm no expert, but I think that the greek of John 19:25 seems to that Mary (the mother of Jesus) had a sister also called Mary, which seems a little strange. It is probably ambiguous in the greek, but it looks as if the greek translator left a out ??????? (and).

It is ambiguous as to whether there are three or four women, and the missing conjunctive, ??????? (and) might make three preferable...?

the-mother---of him

and-the---sister----of-the--mother--of him



Interestingly Taitian follows the peshitta which has four women unambiguously.
