Any standard format is acceptable, though I prefer author-date citation (see Chicago Manual of Style); MLA and SBL are also welcome. Students will select a 5-7-verse section from one of the passages listed below for careful exegetical study Your topic is 1) Genesis 18 Papers should include the following (a grading rubric will be distributed in class): 1) An introduction (introduce topic, state thesis clearly, and indicate organization).

(1.5 pages) 3) Analysis of the passage in its context. Here you will walk through each verse of your passage, addressing what you believe to be the most significant exegetical issues (meanings of words and phrases, organization/structure, logical flow, contribution to the larger argument or narrative). You will not be able to cover every verse of the passage in equal detail and should select the most important 5-7 verses for particularly close study (and these need not be consecutive). (2.5-4.5 pages) 4) Discussion of the theological implications of your passage both within its immediate context and within a broader Christian canonical context. What does the passage communicate about God and his work in the world? How do you understand these issues in light of the complete revelation of God in Christ? Points of application are also appropriate here.
