Grammar of romans 9:5

Post by Isaac Newton »

ὧν οἱ πατέρες καὶ ἐξ ὧν ὁ Χριστὸς τὸ κατὰ σάρκα ὁ ὢν ἐπὶ πάντων Θεὸς εὐλογητὸς εἰς τοὺς αἰῶνας ἀμήν.
Two different ways of taking ὁ ὢν ἐπὶ πάντων are generally discussed.


(1) ὁ ὢν ἐπὶ πάντων is a participle phrase with the participle functioning substantivally, and starting a new sentence.


(2) ὁ ὢν ἐπὶ πάντων is functioning attributively, in the second attributive position (ὁ Χριστὸς τὸ κατὰ σάρκα ὁ ὢν ἐπὶ πάντων); in other words there is an attributive use of the participle here.

IMHO option (2) is highly unlikely.
