Mark 16:16 Analysis
Display the text.
- This is a complex, declarative sentence, of which "he that believeth and is baptized," is the complex subject.
- "He" is the simple subject, modified by a limiting or restrictive clause, "that believeth and is baptized," a simple element of the third class.
- "...that believeth and is baptized," is a partial, compound, subordinate, declarative sentence of which "that" is the simple subject, unmodified, of which subordinate sentence also "believeth and is baptized," is the compound predicate; of which principal sentence "shall be saved" is the simple predicate, unmodified."
- "And," is a copulative conjunction.
A "he" is under consideration. "He ... shall be saved." Were the "he" unmodified, universal salvation would here, at least, be affirmed. But, the passage limits the "he" by means of a restrictive clause, "that believeth and is baptized."
