How To Write An Exegetical Paper

& Questions

March 21, 2014

exegesis textual background
Exegesis: Textual Background
  • Skim the entire book (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John)
    • Read the headings, skim Jesus’ words, read occasional topic sentences
    • This will help you get a general feel for the book
  • Look up a structural outline of your Gospel
    • For example: http://www.biblestudytools.com/mark/
    • Figure out where your text fits into the structure
  • Carefully read immediate context
    • AT LEAST 2 chapters before and after your text
    • Read chapters in the same section of your text
    • Write notes of what happens in each section
exegesis cultural historical background
Exegesis: Cultural/Historical Background
  • Read your passage carefully and highlight, underline, or write down words, phrases, sayings, quotes, or anything that you think might be significant or difficult to understand.
    • Look those terms or phrases up in a Bible Dictionary
    • For example: http://www.biblestudytools.com/dictionary/
  • Look up your passage in my Green Book
    • IVP Bible Background Commentary by Craig Keener
    • Take note of background information you missed
extraction section
Extraction Section
  • In the extraction section, you will be:
  • Retelling everything that happens in your text to the smallest detail.
  • Incorporating the information that you gleaned from Background research.
  • For a guide to formatting check out the paper on my blog:

interpretation section
Interpretation Section
  • What did this mean to the original audience?
    • The original audience of Jesus’ words/action (Pharisees, Disciples, Crowds, etc.)
    • The original audience of the written Gospel. (1st century Palestine inhabitants)
  • If you cannot answer this question, then you probably did not do a sufficient job on your background section.
application section
Application Section
  • Contemporize.
    • Before doing any personal application, draw modern parallels.
      • Characters
      • Objects
      • Societal Phenomena
    • If Jesus wanted to communicate (either through action or word) the same thing today, what would that look like?
  • Apply.
    • Now that you know what it looks like today…
    • What does it mean to you?
    • How will you live your life differently?
    • How would you look at Jesus differently?
