I would extend this statement to say "that in many cases grammatical
analysis alone of NT Greek is sterile and artificial removing it from" . . .
followed by a long list of subjects including all of the sub-disciplines
required to do NT exegesis, e.g. literary analysis, history, historical
theology, semantic structural analysis, . . .
If one is engaged in doing biblical exegesis, only about one percent or less
of this activity will fall within the parameters set for discussions on
b-greek and even that one percent will have to be discussed on b-greek as if
it was artificially divorced from all the other sub-disciplines.
This sort of protest has been voiced numerous times on this list and all the
standard answers have been given by the list owner and co-chairs over and
over again. So we don't really need to get into a long discussion about it.
