This book is a reference instrument for the use of students and exegetes, to assist them in exploring the shades of meaning often hidden in the language of ancient Greek texts. First it lists the different meaning possibilities of each construction, illustrated by examples from both Classical and New Testament texts. Second, the book provides a similarly illustrated list of Greek constructions for every grammatical meaning. This last section may be regarded as the book’s unique contribution to Greek linguistics. It enables an exegete to compare the construction(s) in his text to other Greek constructions within the same semantic field, and to better demarcate the nuances and subtleties of his text
