Koine Greek Apposition
XNTN Scope of Research
The research of the XNTN construct was very extensive as outlined below. In addition to what is outlined below, all examples that were stumbled upon were also studied.
New Testament and LXX
All four cases which have articles were researched in the entire New Testament and LXX.
The Early Church Fathers
The early church fathers were studied only in the Greek, when two capitalized genitives were found in the XNTN construct. These include: Barnabas, Clement of Rome, Diognetus, Ignatius, Irenaeus, Polycarp, and the writer of The Shepherd of Hermas.
Clement of Alexandria was also studied solely for the purpose of finding longer genitive genealogic chains.
In secular writings, the focus was on nominative and genitive anarthrous capitalized proper names followed by an articular capitalized noun. Additional focus was on titles with anarthrous proper names followed by an article and either βασιλεὺς or βασιλέως.
