The essay should briefly summarize the facts of the event (less than 25% of the essay), list the gospel metaphors (if any), offer an in-depth explanation of any messages or meanings that may apply to your life, and attempt to explain why God might have ordained that particular story in redemptive history. In simpler terms, your essay must answer the following questions: (1) What happened? (2) Does it point to Christ or the gospel? (3) How does this story influence your understanding of God’s desires? (4) Why do you believe that God would ordain this particular story to be in Scripture? Creation and Fall of Adam & Eve David vs. Goliath The Major Famines in Scripture David’s Sin with Bathsheba Moses and the Exodus Elijah’s vs. the Prophets of Baal WARNING: You may incorporate class lessons, but do not plagiarize the in-class notes.

Typewritten essays are preferred. Pre-written essays will be due prior to the start of the exam. Those who choose to wait until the day of the exam will be forced to write an essay without the use of notes or Bible. All essays written on the day of the exam must be completed during the allotted time.
