Beware the Participle's Claws!

In Monday night's 's Greek class I'll be introducing the participle. 

Understanding particles will dramatically increase your ability to read New Testament Greek. In the New Testament, you're going to see particles everywhere. Hebrews is a good example.

Particles help you get sentence variety and can even allow you to construct clauses in a way that expresses subtle nuances of meaning. Always watch for the participle's claws! Get it?

So it's very important to know how to recognize participles and also how to use them. In my chapter on the participle we'll look at dozens of examples of how the participle works in Greek. 

Practice your participles, guys! Keep those claws sharp!
