Learning the Basics for the Glory of Jesus Christ

Audio: Chapter 33

Today we discussed the chapter in Mounce that covered the Greek imperative. The imperative is a non-indicative verb form that is used when making a command to another human (i.e. – Eat!) or when one is entreating God to do something (i.e. – “Give us this day…”). The Greek imperative only occurs in 2nd and 3rd person, present and aorist tenses. The main difference between the tenses for the imperative is that the present tense displays “continuous” action and the aorist tense displays “undefined” action.

As usual, the mp3 is linked below to this post. Please leave any questions or comments you have in the comments section below.

Audio: Chapter 32

The audio from chapter 32 is embedded below in this post. This past Sunday we covered the Greek infinitive. The infinitive is a verbal noun and it’s different forms are indeclinable. The previous week we covered the Greek subjunctive, but unfortunately we didn’t have a recorder for the class. Please post any comments or questions you have below. Enjoy!
