The student should have completed the textbooks by mid-term. Longenecker and Witherington should be worked through as one reads through Galatians in preparation for the class. The reading will count 50% of the grade for this class, and will be evaluated when one incorporates what has been learned into the twenty-page exegesis paper (twenty pages of text), which is the major requirement of the class, besides attendance, participation, and reading. This paper may have endnotes rather than footnotes and may follow Turabian, APA, Slade or Chicago manual of style. Fee’s guide to how to do an exegesis paper may be followed, and one will wish to consult the sample exegesis papers on reserve in the library. This twenty-page exegesis paper will be due by Friday, October 29. There will also be a take home final. The final is worth 25% of the grade as is the exegesis paper 1. B.
