John 1:11



Greek τὰ ἴδια. The Own Selves. Definite article and plural. If translated "his own" or something similar, the plural is lost. If translated "the own ones" or "the Own Selves" we are much more true to the grammar.

ἴδιος idios 1. pertaining to oneself, one's own; used a. universally, of what is one's own as opposed to belonging to another. As in “the belonging” or “possession”. An adjective + definite article. See Strong’s #G2398, one’s own, belonging to one, what is one’s own.
