Title: 'The Apostles Whom He Chose because of the Holy Spirit'
Subtitle: A Suggestion Regarding Acts 1,2
Author(s): KILGALLEN, John J.
Volume: 81 Issue: 3 Date: 2000
In Acts 1,2 Luke has placed 'through the Holy Spirit' between two verb forms, the participle 'having given orders' and the verb 'he had chosen'; suggestions have been offered over the years as to which of these two verb forms 'through the Holy Spirit' is supposed to modify. In this note, there is offered a fresh suggestion to resolve this syntactical problem; moreover, with this suggestion Luke's intention is better clarified.
