The perturbation theory for a color-quark gauge theory on a spatial lattice is developed in time-dependent form. Graphical rules are suggested. These methods are then applied to study the nature of the 5 symmetry exhibited when the bare-quark-mass term is zero. Investigation of the quark proper self-energy leads to the conclusion that the 5 symmetry is realized in the Nambu-Goldstone mode. A Bethe-Salpeter equation for the proper 5 vertex is solved in the ladder approximation, and shown to exhibit zero-mass poles.
