The Aorist (tense)

The Aorist tense is the only thing I know about the Greek language that matters. It’s value to me has not been minimized. I don’t know Classical Greek nor Koine Greek but I learned about Greek verb tenses in college. I am far past college now and I still remember the aorist tense of a Greek verb and its implications for us who believe in a God who was, who is and who is to come.

God in heaven “needed” (in quotes because He is never needy) the aorist tense in a language before He completed all his work on this earth. He waited for the Son to come until that language was expressed and in written form. That is Koinonia Greek.

I will put a few references here to establish the implications of this verb tense for God’s communication to us and for what He has done in our behalf–all without any worthiness on our part.

Thank God for the aorist tense.

For further enlightenment:

The Aorist is so much more than a past tense (Mounce displays the use of the aorist tense in the New Testament)

Dinosaurs Beside Man in Time

7 Myths summary: Many today would say “Dinosaurs died out millions of years ago, did not walk with man, and are not mentioned in the Bible.” The Bible paints a different picture: Dinosaurs were created during Creation week (right before Adam & Eve), were named by Adam, then died out in Noah’s Flood just thousands of years ago. This video is #7 of 7 in our series, “Debunking the 7 Myths that Deny Biblical Truth.” See our website for more info:

I have not thoroughly investigated the 7 myths but the information presented in video is compelling.
