1 John 3:1-3

3:1 The word here for "we are" is actually not fully connected with "we shall be called." The word for "we shall be called" (klethomen) is part of the "hina" clause; however, the "we are" (esmen) is in the indicative. In other words, the "we are" is emphasized quite strongly here.

3:2 The word revealed has no clear subject. It could either be "he" or "it" (ie, what we shall be).
