Greek New Testament Sentence Diagrams, NA28 Edition

$49.99

Overview

Originally published in BibleWorks, The Greek New Testament Sentence Diagrams by Randy Leedy provide a comprehensive set of sentence diagrams for the entire Greek New Testament, based on the text of the NA28. Sentence diagramming is a practical and effective means of visualizing the structure of individual clauses and sentences. They make it possible to easily see grammatical relationships between the individual words and phrases, as an aid to understanding how they function in context. These diagrams are especially beneficial for students and pastors studying complex and lengthy sentences in the Greek New Testament—of which there are plenty!

The Greek New Testament Sentence Diagrams have gained a reputation for assisting readers of the Greek New Testament at every level—from the beginning student who needs help recognizing the structure of even the simpler sentences to the seasoned exegete who values a partner in grammatical dialogue about the many sentences that are particularly long and challenging. Approximately 1,000 grammatical notes offer explanations and alternative constructions.

  • Quickly find the kernel elements of clauses, such as subjects, verbs and complements, even in difficult sentences
  • Gain a quick overview of the general syntactic structure of sentences
  • Explore grammatical details down to the level of even the smallest sentence structures
  • Consult expert opinion on many grammatical details passed over by commentators
Some of us think that diagramming is a key component to proper exegesis. I encourage my students to diagram their passages in my exegetical courses. But diagram the entire Greek New Testament? Randy Leedy has done it! Most commentaries are rather disappointing when it comes to detailed interaction with the Greek text; too often they gloss over the hard parts. But Leedy’s diagramming is a refreshingly honest work. Do I agree with every decision he has made? Of course not; diagramming, too, is interpretive. What it especially does is to bring to the conscious level the decisions that the exegete intuitively makes. Leedy has worked with the text and has done an amazing job at showing how everything connects. By using Dr. Leedy’s diagrams, students will get one more layer of interpretation, and one closely tied to the actual words of Scripture. Get this tool!

    Randy's sentence diagram work in the New Testament is a great resource for the serious expositor. I highly recommend this work. Of course, it would have been nice to have the functionality of the BibleWorks edition. Nonetheless, it is possible for anyone to bring up the diagram of the passage being studied and make the drop down box appear and hit exegetical guide for the details of the text.

    Love the hard work that Randy put into these diagrams. They diagrams help the exegete understand the flow of the text. As a teacher of Greek and an expository Preaching Pastor, this tool is worth it weight in gold. Thank you Randy..thank you!

    These diagrams are great when you are stuck trying to figure out which word/clause goes with what. I wish these were interactive but that is no fault of Dr. Leedy. Dr. Leedy also operates a very active Facebook group where you can discuss diagramming not to mention his YouTube videos explaining diagramming step by step. With these additional resources you will get a lot more out of the diagrams in Logos.

    It's a very useful tool, though it could benefit from some color; perhaps verbs in a color, nouns in another, etc? More interactivity would also be ideal.

    I see that replies I have written to a couple of critical reviews don't show up unless you click on "Reply" under the review. I've replied at length to a couple of those reviews, so I hope you'll be able to find those replies without too much trouble. I'll add a couple of comments here were they're easily visible. One reviewer complains of false advertising, since the product description reads "Explore grammatical details..." but he finds no grammatical details to explore because the words in the diagrams are not hyperlinked to underlying details of morphology, etc. The response is that the diagrams themselves encode the promised grammatical details; you get those details by reading the diagrams, not by clicking on words. The grammatical details that the reviewer does not find are part and parcel of every diagram in the set, right on the surface to be read at a glance, with no need to chase down into layers of hyperlinked information. All that's needed to unlock this trove of grammatical information is a working knowledge of the symbols used for this style of diagramming--which are explained in an appendix detailing the symbols and their meanings. Other reviewers have been disappointed that the diagrams do not include the same functionality that BibleWorks provided for the diagrams in that context. I wish we had anticipated that people would have some difficulty distinguishing between the diagrams themselves (along with their associated notes and other ancillary material) and the software functionality provided for the within BibleWorks. That software functionality is intrinsically NON-portable to other applications. All we can port over to various other publication forms at present are the text and graphics, as if the diagrams were printed in a paper book. It MIGHT be possible to develop a database and associated programming that would allow access to word information based on x-y coordinates of mouse clicks within the diagram images. But this would be a time-consuming and therefore expensive task that would require a very large user base to cover the development cost without having to attach a high price tag. So I don't currently see much of a basis for hope that such functionality will materialize. I really believe that people who begin using the diagrams in careful exegetical study will quickly find them to be well worth the investment. I wish they were ideally functional, too, but I hope any disappointment over what they DON'T do will not rob people of the benefit of what they DO do. Or, to put it in wording that's a little more fun, "Don't let what they ain't keep you from getting the good out of what they is!"

    Here's a suggestion for people who wish the diagrams contained interactive hyperlinks. How about setting up a workspace for working with the diagrams, in which three windows are all linked to move together: the Greek NT (ideally the NA28 text if you're using the NA28 diagrams), the diagrams, and the accompanying notes to the diagrams? Then those hyperlinks you're wanting are pretty easily accessible through the Greek text window.
