Description: Reading the original text of the New Testament often remains intimidating to the student after a foundational year of Greek. This text will help second-year students bridge the gap from elementary grammars and exercises to the biblical text itself. This skill-boosting resource provides hands-on experience in the use of reference grammars and other tools so that students can increasingly venture forth on their own, translating and exegeting the biblical text in the original language. Presenting the complete Greek text of Philippians, a verse-by-verse translation, and an analysis of every word, including morphology, meaning, and syntax, it includes a useful glossary with definitions of the more common functions various forms perform.
Subjects: Methods, Linguistics, Greek
