2 Timothy 3:16
a All Scripture is 1 inspired by God
and profitable for teaching,
for 2 training in righteousness;
Notice that with coordinate relationships, the symbol will be between the arcs
Series (S) Each proposition makes its own independent contribution to a whole.
1 Corinthians 15:3-4
...that Christ died b for our sins c according to the Scriptures,
and that He was buried,
and that He was a raised on the third day b according to the Scriptures,
Progression (P) Like series, but each proposition is a further step toward a climax. This can be a climax in time or climax in importance.
If you change the order, does the passage still work?
a Whoever exalts himself shall be humbled;
and whoever humbles himself shall be exalted.
Alternative (A) Each proposition expresses a different possibility arising from a situation. Proverbs are full of them.
but 1 a emptied Himself,
taking the form of a b bond-servant,
and c being made in the likeness of men.
Notice the coordinate relationships symbol is between the arcs while the subordinate is inside of the two arcs being connected.
Action - Manner (Ac/Mn) An action and a statement indicating the way or manner that action is carried out. This relationship can also be used to indicate means.
1 Thessalonians 2:7
But we 1 proved to be 2 a gentle 3 among you,
b as a nursing mother 4 tenderly cares for her own children.
Comparison (Cf) An action and a statement that clarifies that action by showing what it is like.
The ( Cf ) symbol will be inside the arc that action is being compared to
Therefore 1 be careful how you a walk,
not b as unwise men
but as wise,
Negative/Positive (-/+) Two statements, one of which is denied so that the other is enforced. This is also the relationship implicit in contrasting statements. Think two sides of the same coin.
What is the difference between this and Alternative (A)? (A) = 2 options compared (-/+) = one thing denied while another is affirmed If this sentence said, "Therefore be careful how you walk, for the wicked are fools but the godly are wise.. ." then it would have been an alternative.
“Do not think that I came to abolish the a Law or the Prophets;
I did not come to abolish
but to fulfill.
Idea-Explanation (Id/Exp) The relationship between an original statement and one clarifying its meaning. The clarifying proposition may expound on only one word of the associated arc or its entirety.
a What shall we say then? Are we to b continue in sin so that grace may increase?
a May it never be! ....
Question-Answer (Q/A) The statement of a question and the answer to that question.
Hint: Not all sentences that end in a question represent a Question-Answer relationship. Only those who pose a question and then answer it. Ex: "Who will bring a charge against God's elect? God is the one who justifies." - Ro 8:33
For I am not a ashamed of the gospel,
for b it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes...
Ground (G) A statement and the argument or reason for that statement (supporting proposition follows).
1 Peter 4:7
a The end of all things 1 is near;
therefore, b be of sound judgment
and sober spirit ...
Inference A statement and the argument or reason for that statement (supporting proposition precedes)
Order matters with Ground and Inference . - Inference = reason comes first ( Reason ) therefore ( Idea ) vs. Ground = reason comes second ( Idea ) because ( Reason )
... “Now this time my husband will become 1 attached to me,
because I have borne him three sons.”
Therefore he was named a Levi.
Hebrew: lava, related to Levi
Bilateral (BL) A proposition that supports two other propositions, one preceding and one following. 2 ideas with the Ground sandwiched in the middle.
And the man, in whom was the evil spirit, leaped on them
and subdued all of them
and overpowered them,
so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded.
Action-Result (Ac/Res) An action and a consequence or result which accompanies that action. "What was the result?"
1 Peter 2:24
and He Himself 1 a bore our sins in His body on the 2 b cross,
so that we c might die to 3 sin and live to righteousness; ...
Action-Purpose (Ac/Pur) An action and its intended result. "Why did they do this?"
“ a If you love Me,
you will keep My commandments.
Conditional (If/Th) Like Action-Result except that the existence of the action is only potential and the result is contingent upon that action.
1 Corinthians 13:11
When I was a child,
I used to speak like a child,
think like a child,
reason like a child;
when I 1 became a man,
I did away with childish things.
Temporal (T) A statement and the occasion when it is true or can occur. " When is this true?"
