Authors : Ayad Seleem Mansour and Badr Abdul Qayoom Abdulla

Abstract: The aim of this study is to analyze the grammar and ideology of some verses in the English version of The New Testament from a critical discourse analysis point of view. Passivization and modality including truth, obligation, permission and desirabilityare used to uncover ideology of The New Testament through selecting some verses and analyzing them. The English version New International Version of The New Testament with Psalms and Proverbs is adopted as the data of this research, for it can well cover the topic under study. The study depends on Fowler’s model of modality to show its uses in The New Testament and it also depends on Hart’s views to deal with the grammar and ideology of The New Testament. The researchers conclude that the English New Testament is a good source of ideology that has its influence on people’s behavior and that it is important to study and understand the grammar and ideology of the English New Testament.
