Bible Notes

"We ... shew unto you that eternal life" (I John 1:2)—The Greek word "epangellomen," here translated "we shew," means more literally "we report" or "announce" (of. Souter: Greek Lexicon, p. 27). Hence Moffatt translates: "We bring you word of that eternal Life;" Goodspeed: "We ... announce"; and Weymouth (5th edition): "We declare unto you the Life Eternal." It may be added that the translation "show" in John 5:20 is a literal rendering of the original.

"Quickeneth" (John 5:21)—The verb "quicken" is, of course, used here in the sense of "to make alive," and, when thus understood, it is a literal rendering of the Greek.
