Conjunction subordinating


A subordinating conjunction is a conjunction that combines an independent clause with a dependent clause. A dependent clause cannot stand on its own. [example: The boy received a present because it was his birthday.] Typical subordinating conjunctions are since, because, before, and until.

Example: Mark 12:34
ὁ Ἰησοῦς ἰδὼν αὐτὸν ὅτι νουνεχῶς ἀπεκρίθη εἶπεν αὐτῷ οὐ μακρὰν εἶ ἀπὸ
τῆς Βασιλείας τοῦ Θεοῦ
ho Iēsous idōn auton hoti nounechōs apekrithē eipen autō ou makran ei
apo tēs Basileias tou Theou
The Jesus when he saw that wisely he had answered he said to him not
far you are from the kingdom of God
When Jesus saw that he had given a wise answer, he said to him, “You
are not far from the kingdom of God.”
