[B-Greek] Is this a good way to give students 'translation' lessons?

Hope this hasn't been discussed recently. If so, please forgive me.

This is an alternative way of teaching Greek that allows for actual NT examples and shows how the words function. [Taken from Dr. Decker's blog.] Why couldn't this work for advanced Greek??

I think the examples alone are self-explanatory...

Mark 3:28, Ἀμὴν I say to you ὅτι everything it will be forgiven τοῖς υἱοῖς τῶν ἀνθρώπων.

Mark 6:13, He cast out many δαιμόνια καὶ anointed many ἀρρώστους ἐλαίῳ.

John 1:28, Behold ὁ ἀμνὸς τοῦ θεοῦ who takes away τὴν ἁμαρτίαν τοῦ κόσμου.

John 1:51, You will see τὸν οὐρανὸν opened καὶ τοὺς ἀγγέλους τοῦ θεοῦ.

Rom 1:18, ὀργὴ θεοῦ is revealed.

Rom 2:13, οἱ ἀκροαταὶ νόμου will not be justified, but οἱ ποιηταὶ νόμου.
