2 John 7 and Verbal Aspect

image of Novum Testamentum

This article argues that the present tense-form (ἐρχόµενον) used in the confession of 2 John 7 should be understood as parallel to the perfect tense-form (ἐληλυθότα) used in the confession of 1 John 4:2. After critically reviewing the five current ways the present tense-form is interpreted, the article outlines how recent research into verbal aspect indicates that the present and perfect tense-forms are closely related. Evidence of this relationship is then provided from 1 John allowing some conclusions to be drawn about the five current interpretive options.
