For an Informed Love of God


ἐκεῖνος means “that (those).”

“If a kingdom is divided against itself, ἐκεῖνος kingdom cannot stand.” (Mark 3:24).

Mounce's Expository Dictionary (abridged): 

Pronoun: ἐκεῖνος (ekeinos), G1697 (S 1565), 265x. ἐκεῖνος is the far demonstrative (adjective and pronoun) meaning “that, those” etc." It is in contrast to the near demonstrative, οὑτος (“this, these”).
