The Greek Verb Revisited
A Fresh Approach for Biblical Exegesis
Steven E. Runge Christopher J. Fresch
OverviewNew Testament studies have debated the Koine Greek verb for 25 years--reaching an impasse when it came to both tense and aspect.
Now, a group of scholars offer a new take on this debate. Originally presented as part of a conference on the Greek verb at Tyndale House, Cambridge, the chapters in The Greek Verb Revisited represent scholarly collaboration from the fields of linguistics, classics, and New Testament studies--resulting in a new perspective that allows the reader to approach the Greek verb in a fresh way.
The Greek Verb Revisited not only offers a rare glimpse into the background of the debate over the Greek verb, but also explains the significance of this discussion and provides a linguistically-sound way forward.
