The second step of a sentence flow is to put the sentence skeleton on the main line.

Displaying Indirect Objects

If there is an indirect object, it is displayed on the main line between the verb and the direct object. The indirect object can be located by asking who or what indirectly receives the action of the verb through the direct object. Because John 3:16-18 does not have any indirect objects, you can drill with some other verses. Some of these propositions have indirect objects, some do not.
(Remember that many propositions do not have an indirect object.)

Click on the indirect object in each of the propositions. You will see the results in the sentence flow below.

(If the proposition does not have an indirect object, click on the 'NO I.O.' button.)
