NOTE:  You are not required to do Steps 2-4 or 10-12.  We are focusing on *syntax* based on identifying form and function, so steps 1, 5-9 are of critical importance.  Once you’re done working through each verse, *then* provide a suitable English translation.

HINT:  When you’re working through this, you should have several reference works and tools open to consult:  [1] Mounce textbook (=M); [2] Wallace Basics of New Testament Syntax (=W-Abr) or Greek Grammar Beyond the Basics (=W), [3] BDAG Lexicon, [4] your Greek NT, [5] your parsing sheets and any notes you’ve made on the photocopies of the Greek text (accessible under Restricted Access); [6] Bateman Workbook; and [7] line diagrams from Leedy and from Bateman (see Restricted Access).

Please use the parsing sheets to parse everything–it should form the basis of your answers to our discussion questions in class.  That means when Bateman asks you to parse a form in the workbook, you can just put PS for “parsing sheet” to indicate that you’ve already parsed the form on your parsing sheet.  Also, in the Bateman workbook, sometimes he asks you to see how the other English Bible versions translate a Greek phrase or sentence.  If you don’t have a Bible software program to do this, you can go online to http://www.biblegateway.com to look up an English version.  In order to create parallel columns of the different English versions that Bateman will ask you to compare, follow the instructions here: https://support.biblegateway.com/entries/187549-how-do-i-view-multiple-bibles-in-parallel-side-by-side
Reading:  Read whatever Bateman asks you to read in your grammars.
