10 STEPS TO EXEGESIS

https://www.biblicaltraining.org/library/exegesis-steps-ii/essentials-hermeneutics/mark-strauss

1. IDENTIFY Literary Form:

Historical > Prose > Story

2. GET THE BIG PICTURE

Must DO Steps NO matter how short on time - Determining who wrote the book, why they wrote it, what is its central themes, what is its purpose; these kinds of questions are critical for any passage that you are going teach.
Histortorical Context (understanding the place in history)
Literary Context (getting the themes of the book)

3. DEVELOP A THESIS

THIS IS ONLY ONE SENTENCE THAT DETAILS THE THE THESIS STATEMENT. IN OTHER WORDS, WHAT IS THE KEY POINT? IN OTHER WORDS, ESTABLISH THE SUBJECT AND THE COMPLEMENT

4. Outline the Progress of Thought in the Passage

Ask, how is this thesis statement developed in the progress of the passage? Your points, your sub points, in other words, the progress of thought should reflect this development.
There are various ways to outline a passage, but however you outline the passage, every point in a good outline must do two things. Every point in a good outline must first relate directly to the big idea, relate directly to your thesis statement. Once you have established a thesis statement every sub point or every point you are going to teach should relate directly to the big idea.

5. Consult Secondary Sources (a Good Commentary) on Your Passage.

6. Analyze Syntactical Relationships

7. Analyze Key Terms and Themes

8. Resolve Interpretive Issues and Problems

9. Evaluate Your Results From the Perspective of Wider Contextual and Theological Issues

10. Summarize Your Results
