"For the remission of sins" - "For The Remission Of Sins." David Padfield wrote to several prominent Greek scholars and posed this question: "Is it grammatically possible that the phrase 'eis aphesin hamartion,' 'for the remission of sins,' as used in Acts 2:38, expresses the force of both verbs, 'repent ye and be baptized each one of you,' even though these verbs differ in both person and number?" These letters were quoted in the debate several times. This booklet contains photocopies of their responses and explains the phrase "for the remission of sins" in a very detailed manner (PDF file size: 640k).
