The Greek conjunction “εἴγε”

Possibly used in 2 Cor. 5:3; Gal. 3:4; Eph. 3:2; 4:21; Col. 1:23 and formed from the particles “ei” and “ge,” the conjunction “eige” meant “inasmuch as” or “if indeed.”

Some believe this conjunction does not exist in the aforementioned verses because our early Greek manuscripts were written “scriptio continua” (there were no spaces between words and sentences).
