What Is the “What” (Mt. 19:6)?

By Timothy Sparks


The pronoun-antecedent agreement allows us to know that to which “what” (Mt. 19:6) refers. How can we know? The way it works in Greek is that “a Greek pronoun agrees with its antecedent in number and gender”  (http://www.motorera.com/greek/lessons/lesson10.html)

The only identifiable pronoun-antecedent agreement for “what” (neuter singular, Mt. 19:6) are the words “male” (neuter singular, Mt. 19:4) and “female” (neuter singular, Mt. 19:4). Therefore, the “what” is the “male” and the “female.” The same evidence exists in Mk. 10:6, 9.
