While I believe I have an accurate ability to recognise the role nominative/accusative in a basic sentence, and I do generally recognise correctly the subject/objects while practicing reading the NT, There have been some cases in the greek NT, where I am mixing up the subject/object position, I think when there are multiple phrases or clauses in one sentence. I wonder if there is something that I am missing, I hope this is a simple enough example:
When I read this, I get mixed up, because I initially read it as:καθὼς ἀπέστειλέν με ὁ ζῶν πατὴρ κἀγὼ ζῶ διὰ τὸν πατέρα, καὶ ὁ τρώγων με κἀκεῖνος ζήσει δι᾿ ἐμέ.
So in other words, I think I'm seeing "ὁ ζῶν πατὴρ" as part of the next subject of the next clause instead of belonging as the subject of the first clause. As in my English above, usually the resulting english doesn't make sense, and I work out the mistake pretty quickly, but sometimes I don't.Just as he sent me—the living father and I live because of the father
Is there something that I have missed from first year greek that would help with this? Perhaps in this particular example, I need to recognise κἀγὼ as a break in the sentence somehow? Any pointers would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
