A Grammatical Analysis of the Greek New Testament presents a verse by verse analysis of the original Greek New Testament. Breaking down the significant Greek words, it offers parsing, including cross-references to the author’s Biblical Greek, notes, glosses, and other relevant information. Grammatical Analysis also provides a succinct interpretation of figures of speech and other explicit or implicit information within the Greek text. The analysis is preceded by a glossary of grammatical terms.

Grammatical Analysis has proven itself an invaluable tool for the student and scholar alike. The hope of author Max Zerwick, S.J. is that with this analysis “the Greek text of the New Testament will not remain exclusively a tool on the desks of a decreasing number of specialists but will become a living power in the hands of theologians, of preachers of the Word, of directors of Bible discussion-circles, and finally in the hands of those who pray in private from the Word of God.” The Logos Bible Software edition of A Grammatical Analysis of the Greek New Testament also features the ability to scroll in sync with the text with a Greek New Testament for immediate analysis of whatever passage you are studying.

“A genitive absolute is a clause whose subject and verb (always a participle) are in the genitive. It is called ‘absolute’ because it stands independently of the following clause and can therefore be omitted without disturbing the syntax. According to classical norms the gen. abs. should only be used when its subject does not occur in the principal clause, otherwise the participle ought to be in the same case as its subject; that is to say, it ceases to be a gen. abs. and becomes a ‘concordant’ participle.” (Page xi)

“God’s mode of action in conformity w. his holiness and his plan of salvation promised to men” (Page 459)

It is clear that the devoted labor of these authors has placed future generations of students—beginners and scholars—in their debt when it comes to brief analytical word-by-word comment on the Greek text and its meaning.

Max Zerwick (1901-1975), a Jesuit priest, was the author of Analysis philologica Novi Testamenti Graeci and Graecitas biblica Novi Testamenti exemplis illustratur, both published by Editrice Pontificio Istituto Biblico.

Mary Grosvenor’s (died 1991) linguistic interests began in 1925 when she published A Colloquial English-Chinese Pocket Dictionary in the Hankow Dialect. She was awarded the McCaul Prize for Hebrew and the Trench prize for Greek upon graduating B.D. from King College’s Faculty of Theology in 1937. She worked on the compilation of the Patristic Greek Lexicon at Oxford University Press before beginning on the English adaptation of Analysis philologica Novi Testamenti Graeci, a project that would eventually take her nine years to complete.

    This work offers a mature and thorough analysis of almost every word in the Greek NT, and provides parsing, definitions and explanations of Greek constructions. It was originally in Latin but has been expertly translated and adapted into English. It has undergone five editions, although inexplicably the Preface does not detail the changes in the various editions. I personally think this is a very valuable work which provides a lot of information beyond parsing, and shows to my mind a deep understanding not only of Koine Greek but Classical forms too.

    I own this in paper but purchased the Logos edition for convenience. The way it links to Zerwick's grammar is really helpful (the cross references come up as pop-ups). A book I use and rely on regularly.
