Exegetically Speaking: Paul’s Rhetorical Performance - Philip Towner (1 Corinthians 6:11)

Video from wheatoncollege

"Dr. Philip Towner is professor at the Pontifical Urbaniana University and teaches at the Pontifical Biblical Institute. Among other things, he authored a major commentary on The Letters to Timothy and Titus, and co-authored with Catherine McDowell, The Rewards of Learning Greek and Hebrew. In the Greek of 1 Cor. 6:11 there is a rhetorical device – the threefold repetition of a common conjunction – that translations might not convey, and common English might not employ, but that powerfully conveys Paul’s pastoral-theological point." from video introduction.
