Description: This work is dedicated to David Alan Black, a New Testament scholar who has contributed to the love of the Koine Greek language as it pertains to New Testament studies in numerous ways--as a professor, author, missionary, and editor. The goal of this book is to demonstrate for students the value of continued research in the Greek New Testament. The essays demonstrate how research is currently being done, utilizing such tools as grammatical studies, discourse analysis, textual criticism, verbal aspect, and other linguistic analyses. The chapters include studies on exegesis, verbal aspect, prepositional compounds, relevance theory, and scripture memorization. This book demonstrates the explanatory power of an in-depth usage of New Testament Greek. It is recommended for those who have had at least one year of Greek. Contributors include Herbert W. Bateman IV, David R. Beck, Philip La G. Du Toit, Joseph D. Fantin, Radu Gheorghita, Benjamin L. Merkle, Stanley E. Porter, Victor (Sung Yul) Rhee, Michael B. Shepherd, Margaret Sim, Stephen O. Stout, William Varner, Terry L. Wilder, and Melton B. Winstead.
