1 tn Grk “But they were even more astonished, saying.” The participle λέγονες (legontes) has been translated here as a finite verb to emphasize the sequence of events: The disciples were astonished, then they spoke.
2 tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “then” to indicate the implied sequence of thought.
