Just finished typing the draft of my first on-campus seminary education (a short 2 pager for NT502, Interpreting the New Testament, aka How to Write a Gordon-Conwell type exegesis paper). Both the professor and various people I’ve talked to have said this will be the hardest class of my seminary education. Because, once I get this class down (which thus far is far from easy), the rest of my classes basically use what this class teaches.
To be honest, this paper scared the snot out of me. It’s something I’ve never done before, something I never thought I would do: Textual Criticism. As it turns out, textual criticism is completely counter-intuitive.
