Acts 14:1

Acts 14.1:

Jack, my syntactic breakdown of EGENETO and the infinitives would be as
follows:

EGENETO is the main verb.

Both EISELQEIN AUTOUS EIS THN SUNAGWGHN TWN IOUDAIWN and LALHSAI hOUTWS are
nominal clauses. Joined by KAI, they function as the compound subject of
EGENETO. As has been discussed earlier, KATA TO AUTO may be taken with
either EGENETO or EISELQEIN.

hWSTE PISTEUSAI IOUDAIWN TE KAI hELLHNWN POLU PLHQOS is a result clause
subordinate to LALHSAI.

A very rough English rendering that brings out the syntactical relationships
would be something like "Them to enter the synagogue of the Jews and to
speak in such a way so that a great multitude of Jews and Gentiles to
believe took place in the same way in Iconium." This, of course, is NOT a
good English translation, just one meant to bring out the syntactic
relationships.
