How do I work out the meaning of a Greek text? How can I best understand the forms and vocabulary in this particular text?
This is a beginner's forum - see the Koine Greek forum for more advanced discussion of Greek texts. Please quote the Greek text you are discussing directly in your post if it is reasonably short - do not ask people to look it up.
Is it true that ego eimi (as used in John 8:58) would be bad grammar if Jesus wasn't making a Theological statement about His own Divinity?
All the English Translations I've seen translate this verse something like "before Abraham was, I AM," and that's certainly bad English grammar, but is it as glaring in Greek?
