Advances in the Study of Greek

New Insights for Reading the New Testament

review by Robert Strivens

Little seems certain any longer, in the study of New Testament Greek. Over the past decades, scholars have been raising fundamental questions about how we comprehend the language in which the NT was written. These affect, among other matters, the understanding of the workings of the Greek verb, the definition of words and the way in which sentences, paragraphs and larger sections of discourse are put together.  None of this requires major changes to the more reliable English translations of the Bible.
