    τοὺς σωζομένους, as you rightly say, is the present passive participle, where the literal meaning must be, "those saved from time to time", an ongoing "adding" as they were being saved.

    "Non-temporal" means no "time to time." It means "those who are in (the state of being) saved."

    Yes. Luke often addresses things according to subject rather than chronology.

    Good question Icon. I wonder what scriptures James Donovan thinks I don't understand?

    Perhaps he could list just a few, for a starting point, and we could discuss them.
