  2. Who is it speaking about in verse 10?
  3. What was Paul doing?

There is much more going on in the Greek than we care to bring out at this time, but as we go along, you'll see how exact this is and all the facts that you can get out are amazing!

There will be more pages coming, but we'll do them one at a time for now.
