First Analysis return
1. distinguishing historical issues and literary content
movie vs historical issue

2. Distinguishing history, theology, and homiletics

Historical question (the right questions):
oWhat did this mean back then
oWhat was the significance of this to the original audience? How
about subsequent generations?
3. Finding appropriate sources
Sources that deal with historical issues
4. Don’t meld of what happens before is the same now
do not assume this
Forming an Argument: you have something to say about something
