f the Bible the miraculously and completely inspired Word of God, and it is, and its words verbally inspired by Almighty God, and they are; then the grammatical indicators of scripture are no less inspired.
For example, the tense of the verb translated "I AM" Ex. 3:6, 14 bears inspired significance; "I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living." Matt. 22:32, and "Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was born, I am" Jn. 8:58. The very number of the noun rendered "seed" Gen. 17:7; "Now to Abraham were the promises spoken, and to his seed. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, and to thy seed, which is Christ" Gal. 3:16.
Moreover, Jesus asserted the force and authority found in the very "jot and tittle" Matt. 5:17-18 which forms scripture.
Therefore, it should come as no surprise, that concerning inspired verbiage employed in the Lord's "Great Commission" conveys accurately His meaning and intent in each case. For example, in the apostle Matthew's account, the Lord affirmed that disciples are made by being baptized by using the aorist tense, Greek verb translated "make disciples", which takes place upon [and not before] the action of the present participle "βαπτίζοντες" (i.e. "baptizing") Matt. 28:19.
Likewise, in Mark's account of the "Great Commission", the Lord made clear the necessity of water baptism through the grammatical construction He employed. In the statement "He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved" Mk. 16:16; the action of the main verb "shall be saved" takes place ONLY after the occurrence of the two aorist participles "believeth and is baptized". Consider a parallel statement: "He who eats and digests will be nourished." As the nourishment can precede neither the eating nor the digestion, neither can salvation by any means precede either faith or baptism.
The Bible is completely and verbally inspired by God. Otherwise, the Bible is not inspired at all or many are merely determined NOT to believe in the necessity of water baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
