1Jo 2:19  They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.

Rev 7:11  And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God,

(stood as opposed to "were standing"? - fell and worshipped - being past tense verbs?)

Rom 7:7  What shall we say then? Is the law sin? God forbid. Nay, I had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said, Thou shalt not covet.

had not known sin
had not known lust
shalt not covet

Well, this is beyond me. It's been about 35 years since I've even tried to grammatically analyze a sentence....

What was the point of this exercise again?

Oh yes - why wasn't this verb tense used in the remainder of the bible following the book of Acts, excepting those scriptures noted?

Well, okay - I give up. WHY?

Will knowing all this Greek grammar construction change one's relationship with God and His Christ?.
 It probably is an interesting facet of study if one has an interest in such.

Has anyone figured out the answer to the lead in question of why the pluperfect tense is used only in three verses after Acts?
Is this important to know in order to live Godly?

Thanks WillGreek for clearing away the snow somewhat and also giving an example of pluperfect.

Thank God for the simplicity of the Gospel! Even a little child can understand it.

Spiritual truths are spiritually discerned and we have the unction(anointing) that leads us into all truth from God Himself. (1 John 2:20,27) A knowledge of greek or hebrew is not necessary. If one is a theologian or greek scholar and wishes to explore the depths of language, that is fine. but it is unnecessary to understnad and know the will and voice of God.

One example- there is a voluminous body of literature and all sorts of commenraries exploring the meanings of the single preposition "eis." The reason us that the entire doctrine of "Baptismal regeneration" depends upon how it is translated in Acts 2:38. It is waste of time and effort, unless of course, one translates it correctly and destroys that doctrine. Unfortunately, all that will do is to cause the adherents of the error to make up some more scholasticism in their support.
