Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses about translation theory that is applied to a selected New Testament passages, the Passion narrative of John's Gospel (John 18-19). The Passion narrative of John (John 18-19) is divided into seven discourse units: the arrest of Jesus (18:1-14), Peter's first denial (18:15- 18), the trial before Annas (18:19-24), Peter's denial of Jesus again (18:25-27), the trial before Pilate (18:28-19:16a), the crucifixion of Jesus (19:16b-37), and the burial of Jesus (19:38-42). The three verbal aspects in Greek (i.e. perfective, imperfective, stative) are characterized by their performance of specific functions in each of the discourse units. The perfective aspect is grammaticalized by the aorist tense-forms and is used 186 times in the Passion narrative of John.
