Biblical Greek Exegesis presents a proven, highly practical approach to the study of intermediate and advanced Greek grammar. Most textbooks focus on learning syntactical categories, illustrated by sentences taken from the Greek New Testament, and place little emphasis on how to apply Greek grammar to the Greek text in preparing sermons and lectures. In contrast, Biblical Greek Exegesis stresses "real-life" application. Beginning with selections from the Greek New Testament, students learn intermediate and advanced Greek grammar inductively by analyzing the text. The process closely resembles the approach used in sermon and lecture preparation. In Part 1 (SYNTAX), students work through nine selections from the New Testament, taken from the Gospels, Paul's letters (including Romans), and the General Letters. The selections are arranged in order of increasing difficulty. The student becomes familiar with syntactical categories through translation, grammatical analysis, and grammatical diagramming, supplemented by class discussion. Equally important, the length of these selections allows for semantic diagramming and analysis. This provides a tool for analyzing larger units of meaning, which is not possible when working only with sentences that illustrate specific points of grammar. In Part 2 (EXGESIS), the student takes the sections from the Greek New Testament through a twelve-step method of exegesis and exposition. The students work through one section of approximately fifteen verses every two weeks, beginning with the first step--spiritual preparation--and ending with application and a preaching / teaching outline. This approach has two benefits. Advanced Greek students learn to use the Greek text and grammar as they will in the "real world." They also learn to integrate other significant areas such as literary form and textual criticism, as well as use the exegetical tools. in short, they become better expositors of the Word of God. Bibliographies are provided for each of the twelve steps in the exegetical process. Also included in a summary of syntactical categories based on Wallace's Greek Grammar Beyond the Basics. This successfully field-tested approach to intermediate and advanced Greek will help students bridge the gap between understanding the categories of Greek grammar and the demand to communicate the meaning and significance of the New Testament message to the twenty-first century.Table of ContentsAcknowledgmentsPreface for TeachersThe Need for a New ApproachThe Approach Used in Biblical Greek ExegesisIntermediate GreekAdvanced GreekSome Advantages of This ApproachHow to Use This Book in TeachingIn Intermediate and Advanced Greek CoursesIn Upper-Level New Testament Exegesis CoursesPreface for StudentsWelcome to Biblical Greek ExegesisHow Can the Approach Used in This Book Help You?What Are Our Students Saying?Why Study Greek as a Part of Christian Life and Ministry?In SummarySection One: A Graded Approach to Learning Biblical Greek SyntaxIntroductionWhat to Expect From the Syntax ExercisesA Word About DiagrammingVocabulary, Vocabulary, VocabularyHow to Do Grammatical DiagrammingGrammatical Diagramming ParadigmBasic Principles of Grammatical DiagrammingColossians 3:1--4 as ExampleHow to Do Semantic DiagrammingBasic Principles of Semantic DiagrammingThoughts on Semantic DiagrammingThe List of Semantic FunctionsThe Functions Defined and IllustratedColossians 1:3--5a as ExampleSyntax and Diagramming Exercises1 John 1:1--2:2; 2:28--3:10John 15:1--27Mark 1:1--28Mark 8:27--9:8Colossians 1:1--23Matthew 6:5--34Romans 3:21--26; 5:1--11; 8:1--17James 1:1--21Philippians 1:27--2:13Section Two: The Exegetical MethodIntroductionExegetical Method at a GlanceExegetical Method Step by Step1--Spiritual Preparation2--General Introduction3--Literary Context4--Provisional Translation5--Grammatical Analysis6--Semantic Diagram and Provisional Outline7--Word and Concept Analysis8--Broader Biblical and Theological Context9--Commentaries and Special Studies10--Polished Translation and Extended Paraphrase11--Application12--Preaching/Teaching OutlineAppendix A: Student's Syntax SummaryAppendix B: Worksheets for the Exegetical Method
