18. Phrasing 102

Now that we have a basic understanding of phrasing, it is time to look at a larger passage. In the textbook I discuss Jude, in the video we will look at Eph 1:1–2 (when done), and for homework you will phrase Titus.

In the second edition of Greek for the Rest of Us, this material was in chapter 21.

Watch the lecture (Eph 1:3–14)

You can download the Greek–English interlinear and the commentary for Ephesians 1:3–14 above. You should check Bill’s lecture with the commentary; you will be encouraged with how much more you can understand from studying good commentaries.


Do your basic phrasing of the book of Titus, identifying the basic sections, and then do a detailed phrasing of 1:1–4, 2:11–15, and 3:3–7.
