Today's Topics from A. T. Robertson's Big Grammar

Here are the 5 topics:

  • It’s impossible to translate syntax completely. “The more literal a translation, like the LXX, the more it fails in syntax” (p. 389).
  • Two essential parts of a sentence = subject/predicate, substantive/verb, head/modifier.
  • Pindaric construction and the syntax of Mark 4:41 (see this power point on why Mark's language is NOT "incorrect grammar"!). 
  • Word order!!!!
  • The significance of participles (Eph. 5:15-22).

Should be a fun class 😎
