Overview

Many excellent texts on New Testament Greek grammar and syntax exist to lead students into deeper understanding of the language. Yet these approach the instruction of Greek in either a deductive or an inductive manner. The aim of this 'Syntax-Reader' is to instruct students in the learning of Greek syntax by combining what the best texts on syntax teach with a comprehensive reading of theologically significant passages of the New Testament. In this manner, students come to appreciate Greek syntax as the foundation for exegesis and their understanding of theology and the truth of Scripture. The 'Syntax-Reader' enables students to know not only Greek syntax but to know how syntax contributes to translating and interpreting most of the passages which are basic to the doctrines of Christianity. By means of translation, questions for the "heart and mind," discussion questions, assignments, and syntactical charts, students advance from the doctrine of Scripture through the doctrines of God the Father, Christ the Son, the Holy Spirit, salvation, Satan, holiness, the Church, sin, the nature of people, spiritual gifts, justification by faith, the return of Christ, the exaltation of Christ, and union with Christ. In short, students learn theology as they learn Greek, and they learn Greek as they learn theology.
