Granville Sharp's Birthday

Anyone who has taken Greek in either Bible college or seminary has probably heard of the Granville Sharp rule. The rule regarding a certain construction involving the definite article was first articulated in Sharp's book, Remarks on the Uses of the Definitive Article in the Greek Text of the New Testament: Containing many New Proofs of the Divinity of Christ, from Passages which are wrongly Translated in the Common English Version. In any case, Granville Sharp was born on this day in 1735.
