1st John 2:28 - Larry Kelsey - 12-02-2003

Shlama Akhay,

Maybe akhan Paul will tell me different, but there seems to be a hint of wordplay between [font=Estrangelo (V1.1)]Fwlgd[/font]-(lie,falsity)- in 1st John 2:27 and [font=Estrangelo (V1.1)]fgtmd[/font]-(manifest, reveal)-in verse 28- and [font=Estrangelo (V1.1)]twylg[/font]-(manifestation, confidence)-also in verse 28.

Shlama w'Burkate, Larry Kelsey

Shlama Akhi Larry,

There does seem to be a play on the two consonants Gamel and Lamedh. <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/smile.gif" alt="Smile" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile --> The latter two words are derived from the same root "gala" - meaning to "reveal."
