13 i.e. some Hebrew Christian.

14 a0potumpani/sqhsan.

15 The children of the widow of Sarepta, and the Shunamite, had been brought back to continue this life of temptation and sorrow; it was a "better" kind of "Resurrection" which the prophets sought to obtain themselves.

17 e 0le/gcai, the word used of St. John Baptist reproving Herod, Luke iii. 19.

18 The common texts add the explanatory words, "For this cause also he said, `Of whom the world was not worthy. 0' "

19 fronei=n mei/zw.

20 fronw=men.

21 See above, p. 475, note 3.

[But previously he has connected with ge/foj, so that the present. connection with o!gkon was probably an afterthought on the spur of the moment.-F. G.]
