 5778 Tense - Perfect

     The perfect tense in Greek corresponds to the perfect tense in
     English, and describes an action which is viewed as having been
     completed in the past, once and for all, not needing to be

     Jesus' last cry from the cross, TETELESTAI ("It is finished!")
     is a good example of the perfect tense used in this sense,
     namely "It [the atonement] has been accomplished, completely,
     once and for all time."

     Certain antiquated verb forms in Greek, such as those related
     to seeing (eidw) or knowing (oida) will use the perfect tense
     in a manner equivalent to the normal past tense.  These few
     cases are exception to the normal rule and do not alter the
     normal connotation of the perfect tense stated above.
