So I’m currently enrolled in the Paraphrase course and upon completion, I intend to start another course, and that leads me to my question.
Which course would you suggest and why?
I intend to do verse by verse studies on whole chapters and working my way systematically through books which method would you suggest for that and what method works well with all biblical genres.
Hi there, I’m currently enrolled in the paraphrasing course, and I’m up to my first assignment and I need to create an outline of 1 Thessalonians 1:1-5:28, and I’m not all that confident in my ability to create an outline of a whole book, mostly because I don’t feel like I’m not going to make the correct divisions in the text and that my heads aren’t going to be accurate.
Any assistance, advice and encouragement would be greatly appreciated.
