Presentation Abstract

When learning the Greek language students are loaded with grammatical information that serves to indicate morphological inquiries. Today, this information can be easily obtained by one or two clicks of a mouse on the internet or a Bible software program. So, even with classes of Greek, the question remains: what should students do with this basic information, how will it help in advancing to exegesis? I believe no bridge is formed between morphology and syntax to guide in the process towards exegesis. An additional step is needed. The Parts of Speech Diagram is a necessary tool to bridge morphology and syntax. In addition, this methodology (diagramming) can bridge Greek and Theology. I have seen that the tool of diagramming is key, enhancing all areas of Greek studies: acting as a bridge between morphology and grammar, grammar and syntax, and finally between syntax and exegesis (theological/practical interpretation of the text).
