Title: Exegetical Step Three


1
Exegetical Step Three
  • The Literary Context

2
Overview This Step
  • Purpose To determine how the passage fits into
    the overall purpose/argument of the book
  • Three Sub-Steps for this Step
  • ID the literary type
  • ID the limits of the text
  • ID the role of the passage in the larger context

3
1. ID the Literary Type
  • Genre makes a huge difference in how you read a
    text.
  • Fee summarizes four main types of texts
  • Letters-comprised of paragraphs
  • Gospels-comprised of pericopes
  • Acts-comprised of narratives and speeches
  • Revelation-apocalyptic literature
  • Each of these four types includes subtypes
    (parables, sermons, miracle stories, etc.)

2. ID the Limits of the Text
  • Read the surrounding context and look for shifts
    in idea, person, argument, etc. There are at
    least three things you can do
  • 1. Read the context yourself.
  • 2. See how the GNT has divided the text into
    paragraphs. See pp. 39-45 in UBS4
  • 3. Note the outlines in some leading
    commentaries. Do not look at anything else in
    the commentary.

5
3. ID the Passages Role in the Larger Context
  • No text exists in a vacum
  • How does the paragraph contribute to the argument
    of the page, and eventually the book?
  • Look for not only what the author is saying but
    also what the author is doing.
  • ID the larger section that is the context
  • Spell out in one sentence the purpose or function
    of each smaller unit.
