Product Description

This text will help second-year students bridge the gap from elementary grammars and exercises to the biblical text itself by providing hands-on experience in the use of reference grammars and other tools allowing students to translate and exegete 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.
Designed as a textbook for a semester-length study of the text of Philippians by intermediate seminary or college students, this resource helps to gain confidence in Greek syntax, the ways words are combined and used to express thought, as students work their way through an entire New Testament book.

Jerry Sumney is Professor of Biblical Studies at Lexington Theological Seminary. His other publications include Identifying Paul's Opponents, Servants of Satan, False Brothers, and Other Pauline Opponents, and Preaching Apocalyptic Texts.

Publisher's Description

From Textbook to Text

Students who have completed their first year studying biblical Greek face a daunting challenge when they try to use their knowledge to translate and exegete the New Testament itself. Philippians: A Greek Student's Intermediate Reader is designed to help these students bridge the gap between the formulaic translation exercises found in grammars and the authentic text of the Greek New Testament. Students (and former students) can reinforce their knowledge of intermediate grammar while they translate a book of the New Testament.

This reader provides:
• the UBS4 Greek text of Philippians
• an original English translation
• an analysis of the morphology, structure, and meaning of the epistle's key words and phrases
• callout boxes that introduce intermediate grammatical concepts with clear definitions and examples in Greek and English
• a concise overview of New Testament syntax
• a glossary of grammatical terms
