Grammatical Insights is an extension of Nigel Turner’s conclusions in Moulton’s Grammar of New Testament Greek. This wide-ranging and illuminating study, invaluable to Greek and non-Greek scholars alike, provides a positive contribution to the permanent meaning of controversial passages in the New Testament.
Here, Turner is concerned as much with the neophyte exegete as he is with the seasoned Greek scholar. For the novice, he offers a series of compelling examples of the effect grammar has on New Testament theology. For the scholar, he offers an expansion of his work in Moulton’s Grammar, directing the ideas presented there into territories barred by the grammar’s scope.
Chapters include “The Grammar of God,” “Jesus of Nazareth,” “Saul of Tarsus,” “St. Paul’s Teaching,” “Saint John,” and “Other Writers." A concluding chapter deals with a problem to which Turner has been giving much study and thought, “The Language of Jesus and his Disciples.”
Praise for the Print Edition
In a time when there is insufficient recognition of the large contribution which Greek grammar and syntax can make to our understanding of the New Testament a volume such as Turner’s is welcome indeed.
