Indicative Verbs (chs. 4–5)
2 Lectures 01:35:59
20% of the New Testament is verbs, 28,110 in total—half of these are in what is called the Indicative mood (you’ll understand what this means soon enough!). Verbs are a core component of any language, describing the action in sentences. Greek verbs are also very nuanced, robust, and flexible—and inflected like nouns. Having a thorough knowledge of Greek verbs is essential to understanding the Greek New Testament, they are quite literally where all of the action is!


Topics covered:

  • Types of verbs
  • Verbal aspect
  • Greek verb components
    • Verb tenses
    • Verb voice
    • Verb mood
    • Verb person
    • Verb number
  • Greek Indicative verb formation

Indicative Verbs
54:45

The last chapter focused on the strong verb, using the example of λύω, as well as vowel contractions and consonant interactions that can happen. With λύω, the -λυ- part was consistent. Because it was consistent, we could clearly see the affixes attached to make the different tense & voice combinations. The reality, though, is that most verbs aren’t neat and tidy like this. Furthermore, there is another group of verbs, called μι verbs, that are very different. This chapter will begin by discussing principal parts and then introduce you to various alternative patterns.


Topics covered:

  • Greek principal parts
  • Lexical middle verbs
  • contract verbs
  • compound verbs
  • 2Aorist verbs
  • μι verbs

Other Parts of Speech (chs. 6–7)
2 Lectures 01:29:55
32% of the New Testament is composed of words that fill in detail and give life to the text. Pronouns stand in place of nouns, the word “the” in Greek does a lot more than “the” in English, and adjectives have a robust life in the Greek language. Learning and appreciating these types of words will bring out the life and color of the Greek New Testament as you read and study it.

Topics Covered:

  • The Definite Article
  • What the Definite Article can do
  • Adjective formation
  • What adjectives can do
  • Pronoun formation
  • Different types of pronouns and what they can do
  • Cardinal numbers
  • Ordinal numbers

Phrases and clauses are groups of words that work together to say something. Every word in the Greek New Testament is in a phrase or clause. While we can trust for the most part the editors of our modern Greek New Testament who added commas, colons, and periods, it is because of the the knowledge of Greek clauses that they knew where to place those marks in the first place. Understanding how these units are introduced and what they do in larger paragraphs will help you to better understand Greek structure.

Topics Covered:

  • Adverbs
  • Prepositions
  • Conjunctions
  • Interjections and particles
  • Phrases
  • Independent clauses
  • Dependent clauses

Participles (chs. 8–9)
3 Lectures 01:53:36
Many a grammarian has echoed the sentiments that the mastery of the Greek participle is mastery of Greek itself. Participles are robust in their meaning and usage—it often takes many words in English to translate what a participle is doing. One out of every four verb forms is a participle, they are everywhere! Because of their frequency and complexity of usage, it would be better to start working with participles earlier, except a student needs many other pieces in place first, because participles are part verb and part adjective. Let the fun begin!

Topics covered:

  • Description of participles
  • How participles are formed
  • Participles acting like adjectives

Participle Formation
59:37

The difficulty with participles is not only how they are formed, but also how they can function. Participles can do such a wide range of things that they can be daunting. But because participles are so numerous, you cannot ignore them.

Topics covered:

  • Nominative participle with equative verbs
  • Nominative participle in verbless clauses
  • Periphrastic participle
  • Genitive absolute participle

Non-Indicative Verbs and Infinitives (chs. 10–11)
3 Lectures 01:24:11
Wandering outside of the Indicative mood takes us into the realm of possibility. When a command is given, request is made, or a possibility is discussed, verbs in the Subjunctive, Imperative, and Optative are used. 3,556 of these non-indicative verbs occur, which is almost 1 in 4 verbs in the New Testament.


Topics covered:

  • Subjunctive verb formation
  • Subjunctive function
  • Conditional sentences
  • Imperative verb formation
  • Imperative function
  • Optative verb formation

While not quite as difficult or frequent as participles, infinitives are nonetheless another verbal form that is peppered throughout the NT. One out of every ten verb forms is an infinitive, so they occur quite often. Because infinitives are another hybrid form, this time part verb and part noun, they can function in numerous different ways.

Topics covered:
  • Infinitive formation
  • Infinitive-as-noun functions
  • Infinitive function in discourse
  • Infinitive complementary function
  • Infinitives adverbial functions
