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.
When answering questions in this forum, keep it simple, and aim your responses to the level of the person asking the question.
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?
