It seems that social media has revealed how much some people didn’t pay attention when they were being taught grammar in school. It’s amazing how people sometimes type the way they talk. Plus, understanding grammar and sentence structure is key to getting good understanding of scripture.
Think about how much one comma totally changes the meaning of this sentence…
Luke 23:43 (NKJV)
43 And Jesus said to him, “Assuredly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise.”
Luke 23:43 New King James Version (NKJV)
43 And Jesus said to him, “Assuredly, I say to you today, you will be with Me in Paradise.”
The first example is written in the NKJV. It implies that you will be in paradise today.
In the second example, I moved the comma. It implies that the statement is being said today, but not necessarily that you will be in paradise today.
