3. Romans Research Writing Assignment:(100 points)
At least three of the following sources, including one from the bold list, are to be consulted and noted in your paper:
The first section of your paper should document and discuss any difficulties with the passage, either of translation (don’t know what the Greek word means) or of interpretation (understand the Greek words, but don’t know what Paul was trying to say).Be certain to provide appropriate citations for resources you utilized.
The second section should discuss how the passage fits into the overall scheme of Paul’s argument.This would include a discussion of how the passage fits into what Paul has previously said, as well as what he says following your specific passage.The end of Chapter 11 will be a good place to end this discussion.
Finally, and most importantly, you must make a decision about the meaning of this passage and your own interpretation.This is possible only after a careful examination of the first two issues.Decide your position based on the difficulties you identify in section one and summarize the passage in your own words.
The books mentioned above and any additional resources you use must be fully documented in the bibliography. The information provided on this page is NOT full documentation! Information gleaned from the above writings should be noted in your paper with the author’s name and page number in parentheses, i.e. (Talbert, p. 1).Plagiarism in any form will not be acceptable and will result in a zero (0) for the paper.
