15.98 The Fourth and Fifth Principal Parts

As you learned previously, the Greek verb has six principal parts. You have learned three parts so far: the present, the future, and the aorist active.

In this chapter, you are introduced to two new parts - the perfect active and the perfect middle/passive - but you are not required to memorize these parts since they are not especially common in Biblical Greek and, in general, they are quite easy to recognize.

So please make sure you read this chapter through and look at the notes and examples, because you will be required to understand the Practice Sentences at the end of the chapter. All of the perfect tense verb forms will be explained in the commentary on the Practice Sentences, however, and you will not be quizzed on those forms.
