What logical relationship can we use when the proposition has the phrase/s “besides this” and “much more” like in Hebrews 12:9?
What Logical Relationship To Use
I just saw this question—sorry it sat there unanswered for so long!
For “besides this,” Progression would be a good choice, since it portrays a step forward with keywords like “furthermore.” A paraphrase would be, “And another thing…”
For “much more” in Hebrews 12:9, a Conditional relationship would work. The author is saying, “If we submitted to our earthly fathers, how much more, then, should we submit to our heavenly Father?” So the “much more” doesn’t form the Conditional relationship but strengthens it.
Does that help?
Wow, the answer is very helpful brother. This means a lot. Thank you so much!
