1 Corinthians Aramaic primacy doubted...
distazo Wrote:Hi Paul,
Why would Jews + Syrians + Church of God in verse 32 make no sense?

Syrians doesn't make sense in that context firstly because thats an ethnic designation, unlike Jews and the Church of God. The latter two are religious terms. Paganism is a religion. Pagan makes more sense here.

Additionally, there is meant to be a contrast between these three groups. Because there can be Syrians in the Church of God, it makes more sense to translate this word as pagan.
