|Bible Question (short): Confessing faith in the Light?|
Question (full): This is a Greek scholar/student question:
For John 12:42, where it is translated, "they were not confessing [Him]," how much is the pronoun implied?
Could it also be translated, "they were not confessing their belief", or "confessing their faith?"
