Upon recently reading A. T. Robertson's little classic, The Minister and His Greek New Testament, I was struck by a section in the opening chapter titled "Grammar as a Means of Grace." I was reminded afresh of the vast importance of words and the way they are used, especially the living and active words of Almighty God. Here are just a few of the statements that stood out to me.
...[H]e is no theologian who is not first a grammarian...
The lexicon may point the way to life.
The preacher is of necessity a student of words.
Schisms have arisen around misiniterpretations of single words.
Grammar is a means of grace.
Theological and philospohical crudities have always played an important part in the history of heresy.
