Beyond simply presenting New Testament Greek grammar, Intermediate New Testament Greek helps students learn to use their knowledge of Greek in the exegesis of the New Testament. It accomplishes this goal by augmenting traditional grammar with insights from modern linguistics. Young takes students beyond the surface structure of the language by introducing them to a number of modern linguistic models, including a modified transformational grammar, propositional analysis, genre criticism, semantic structural analysis, pragmatics, speech act theory, and discourse analysis.
For second-year Greek students and ministers who want to use Greek more effectively in their study and teaching, Intermediate New Testament Greek is an excellent resource for:
- Improving abilities in exegesis of the Greek New Testament
- Applying contemporary linguistic concepts in developing a better understanding of Koine Greek
- Understanding exegetical debates in commentaries, journals, and monographs
- Demonstrating the relevance of Greek grammar in current issues in New Testament interpretation
