Question for Barry Hofsesster

Postby Isaac Newton » Wed Sep 06, 2017 12:29 am

What substantive would you replace the pronoun with (highlighted in bold below) in the following verse:

ἐν τῷ κόσμῳ ἦν, καὶ ὁ κόσμος δι’ αὐτοῦ ἐγένετο, καὶ ὁ κόσμος αὐτὸν οὐκ ἔγνω.

(1) τὸ φῶς τὸ ἀληθινὸν

(2) τὸν λόγον

(3)Ἰησοῦν Χριστόν

(4) Other

In other words, what is the antecedent or [else] the postcedent of αὐτὸν in John 1:10 ?
Οὐαὶ οἱ λέγοντες τὸ πονηρὸν καλὸν καὶ τὸ καλὸν πονηρόν, οἱ τιθέντες τὸ σκότος φῶς καὶ τὸ φῶς σκότος, οἱ τιθέντες τὸ πικρὸν γλυκὺ καὶ τὸ γλυκὺ πικρόν
