Project #33392 - Exegesis Paper

Exegesis Paper:  6 pages, double-spaced, 12pt font, Times New Roman, normal margins, footnotes, consult and cite at least two scholarly sources (commentary, Bible dictionary, scholarly article, etc.)

 

Exegesis is the process of interpreting a given text, book, or passage.  Examples of exegetical analysis include, among others: 1) tracing themes from a single passage throughout the entirety of the text, 2) doing an in-depth analysis of the structure or argument of a passage or part of a passage, 3) interpreting the theology of a passage in light of the overall intent of the text.  In an exegesis paper it is important to ask why and so what. Why did the author shape this text in this way? What was the purpose and effect of this passage on those who heard/read it at the time of composition? What is the point of this passage? How has this passage been interpreted today and is this interpretation consistent with the original intent of the author? Etc.

One periscope has been chosen from the Gospel of Mark, Matthew, or Luke with a parallel version in all gospels. Carefully analyze your passage and compare it with its parallels, noting where the material has come from (triple or double tradition? Mark or Q?, etc.) and points where the versions differ. Offer a compelling argument for the differences based on what you now know of the character of each gospel and support your argument with an appeal to scholarship (two sources).

 Steps:

1.    Analyze the 3 page given (about Jesus heals a boy possessed by a spirit) pericope that has been scanned. 

2.     Compare it to parallels

3.     Note the differences

4.     Make an argument for the differences

5.     Support your argument with scholarship ( min of 2 scholarly sources required)

Rubric:

Excellent writing, clear argumentation and structure, few or no grammatical or typographical errors.
