Conjunction Function  (MG)

You’ve probably heard Bible teachers say something like: “Whenever you see the word “therefore” you should make sure you understand what it’s there for.” That’s true of lots of words that perform the role of connecting thoughts. They are called conjunctions. Don’t overlook any of them, even the tiny ones like “and” and “but.” Treat conjunctions like speed bumps that slow you down until you identify the purpose of every conjunction in the text. It will always pay to ask what they are there for, even when they are not the word “therefore.”
