This look at the grammar and syntax of Second Timothy uses a unique combination of a block outline of the Greek text with an English interlinear to expose the letter’s structure. Discussion uses traditional grammatical and syntactic terminology as well as newer terminology from the realm of discourse grammar to support the reader in exegesis and teaching of Second Timothy.

Praise for the Print Edition

This is a fascinating study as Brannan comments on grammatical and syntactical relationships throughout 2 Timothy with comments on the implications for flow of thought and meaning. I am not aware of anything quite like this available anywhere else. This will be a great resource for anyone working through the Greek text of 2 Timothy.

—Ray Van Neste, professor of biblical studies, director of the Ryan Center for Biblical Studies, Union University

Move beyond your word studies into a world that recognizes how words relate to each other in larger units. If you have enough Greek to begin, Rick Brannan will take you to the next step of discovering how Paul communicates to us not just by the lexemes but by the Logos, the message that imparts life.

—William Varner, professor of Bible and Greek, The Master’s College

    I found it very, very basic and returned it. The author does a sort of outline, but it's very basic, not particularly insightful. He makes observations about syntax that are very obvious -- at least to me, after 40+ years of reading the Greek text. I was going to get an example, but I see Logos has already removed the resource. But he'll say either this or very like this: "Nominative, because he is the author of the letter." Yes, right. "Nominative, because it is the subject of the clause." Uh huh, yes, nominative does do that. "Relates to the previous clause." Yes, I see that; that's what conjunctions do. And...? And so forth. He rewords the Greek, but again not to any great illumination. No great insights, no useful appeal to grammars; just almost the sorts of notes one would make in his first pass over the Greek text in beginning exegesis. "Pronoun fronted." Right, it sure is. Not worth the $16 pre-pub price, let alone $20. Maybe if a student were just beginning Greek and didn't have any other commentaries, it might be a start. But in that case, I'd just say get a good commentary, like Knight's, or Towner's, or Mounce's, or a half-dozen others.
