Diagramming

Yesterday and several other times in this Blog I have mentioned diagramming sentences as a means of unlocking or analyzing passages of Scripture.  It is not easy.  It requires a lot of thought and some research.  It also requires one to brush up, no polish brightly one’s English grammar.  The benefits outweigh the work.
There is one tool that will really help you unpack a verse, but it is hard.  Thoughts at DTTB.
Click on it and the fuzziness goes away...

Why?

Because it slows you way down and forces you to really look at how the Holy Spirit led the writers to construct their thoughts.  I was going to recommend a text that I have that would help you learn to diagram and at the same time polish your grammar, Sentence Analysis by Donald W. Emery, but if you do a quick Amazon search for that book you will find that 114 page paperbound pamphlet is now selling for north of $70.  If you are serious it is worth it.  But you can get a lot of information on this skill by searching for Sentence Diagramming on the internet.

Dare you
