Galatians 3:3

Are ye now perfected in the flesh? (nun sarki epiteleisqe?). Rather middle voice as in 1 Peter 5:9 , finishing of yourselves. There is a double contrast, between enarxamenoi (having begun) and epiteleisqe (finishing) as in 2 Corinthians 8:6 ; Philippians 1:6 , and also between "Spirit" (pneumati) and flesh (sarki). There is keen irony in this thrust.
