Notes
The main content for our bible study is online at https://churchserviceplanner.co.uk/p/parkstone-church-april-22nd . This page has some additional diagrams for you to look though if you want to think a little deeper about the passage. A "bracket" is where you break the passage into clauses/sentences and think about the logical connection between each unit. A "phase" is where you indent/connect/arrow each clause to show which is the main clause and which are subordinate. If you're really keen, you can examine my work in the Greek as well. Please do email questions or comments.
