Description:

The article discusses the usage of syntactical structures of imperative-future passive indicative combinations and imperative-present participle combinations in Acts 2:38, to assist a Greek speaker familiar with narrative composition in understanding and employing them. The author explains that the knowledge will help in correctly and closely understanding what Luke intends this language to mean through his main character, at the conclusion of the narratively programmatic speech of Peter.
