Before submitting your work think through that and then finally wrap it up with very clear and very specific application don’t just say read your Bible Ward that’s great advice but how be specific give an example a concrete example of what they can do and then finally on a separate page there would be a bibliography formally written all the sources that you used all the sources that you cited in your paper and if you’ll go back to the syllabus you’ll know that there are a minimum of 12 and there are a variety of types you need to include a Bible Dictionary you need to include a course sir New Testament introduction or survey book. Work on your essay statements with Edusson.

You’d include certain types of commentaries certain amount of word study all that kind of content you need to work through and include in your bibliography now here’s the thing I’m expecting you to have actually read incited those sources don’t just say well he doesn’t know I included these twelve God knows and so you just remember that make sure that you’re doing above a reproach level of work now let’s very quickly look at this sample exegetical paper see the titles there you’d put your name and the course name and the type of the date here here’s an example of that main idea so we’re talking about Ephesians here’s our main idea of the text here are the major points and here is the the text written out I think that’s helpful you don’t have to do it necessarily that way but follow this model or the model we saw in our paper here if we went all the way back here we’d see we didn’t include the text now but we did include the sub points here there are more points or less sub points so you might include the passage that helps me track what you’re doing exactly and then here we go here’s an introduction and then notice at the very bottom they’ve included the main idea of the text.

What we abbreviate oftentimes it’s the MIT main idea of the text then the next portion this happens to be a whole page but where ever this ends the next section begins contexts and situations so this would be the historical context and the cultural situation as well as the surrounding context that goes on for about two pages two and a half in this case and so then as we track through here we get to our content of the passage and here’s that passage section there’s the main heading as we saw in that outline if you pay this back notice we have our footnotes here notice what we’re dealing with the words and what’s going on Paul uses this word and etc similar to Zechariah he’s doing a word a cross reference there we’re building off of what scholars like John RW Stott have explained then we move on to the next one and then we continue and continue and continue there’s a the third main heading and the fourth main heading.
