An application of current linguistic research on discourse markers to sentence conjunctions in Matthew's Gospel.
This treatment combines linguistic insights with a detailed examination of Matthew's use of kai, de and similar conjunctions in narrative passages, culminating in a verse by verse commentary on the structure of Matthew's;miracle chapters', Matthew 8-9.
Black breaks new ground in linguistic theory by modelling the interplay between features such as sentence conjunction, word order, and verb tense in the portrayal of continuity and discontinuity in Greek narrative.
A volume of interest to New Testament scholars, classicists, discourse analysts and linguists alike.
