After treating the exegetical ('then' meaning) in the first paragraph, a second paragraph should attempt to deal with the expositional ('now' meaning) significance of each significant part of the text (at minimum the divisions established in the outline headings). Where this involves a hugh cultural gap between the first century and the twentieth, be sure to exercise caution and provide justification for your interpretive application of the text. One major aspect of this is the linkage of this expositional paragraph to the expositional outline used as the paper headings. You should reflect the basis of the heading in this paragraph as a natural transition from exegetical to expositional perspectives.
Footnote at bottom of page all references, according to Turabian 6th edition (see 6:1-5:158). Deal with text variations in UBS critical and punctuational apparatus, either in the body of paper or as a content footnote. The significance of the variants to the essential meaning of the text is the determinative factor in whether to include in the body or in a content footnote. Be sure to include as an appendix the Text Critical Worksheets completed for each of the UBS listings in the text critical apparatus.
c. Summarize your analysis of text through an interpretative paraphrase of the text. See Wuest's expanded translation or ICC for examples.

Otherwise, the paper will be graded down on form!
