Required sources for Dr. Russ Lovett’s
BLIT 210: Christian Scriptures students
This assignment is a guided interpretive exercise of a selected pair of texts representing the work of both an Old Testament writer and a New Testament writer. Students will be guided through the process one step at a time.
- Students who have taken College Writing II should use the method taught in the course
- Not taken College Writing II yet? Use the method you learned in high school
- No previous research writing instruction? Request assistance from the ONU Writing Center, 2nd-floor, Benner Library.
- Each student will be given an Old Testament text which is quoted either in whole or in part in the New Testament.
- Focus on the portion of the two texts which is actually cited in the New Testament
- One goal of the research is to determine what the New Testament writer is doing with the Old Testament text. In other words, how is the New Testament writer interpreting the Old Testament text to fit the situation he is addressing?
- Consult course materials for complete assignment details and instructions.
Below is the list of “Required Sources” from Dr. Lovett’s guidelines. If you are enrolled in his course, use ONLY these sources. If you have a different course instructor, return to the exegesis page to find course-specific materials. If your professor is not listed, you may be able to use any of our resources (check assignment instructions to confirm).
