See the course Doc Sharing area for a bibliography for source material. Be sure to use some of

those biblical reference books in the bibliography for your paper, especially those by Bauer,

Buttrick, Freedman, Kittel and Friedrich, Leon-Dufour, McKenzie, and Sackenfeld. Avoid using

other sources found on the Internet unless cleared in advance with the instructor. Publically

available digital sources may not always be of high quality.

You should document your paper carefully. More than three consecutive words used by another

author need to be documented as direct quotation (as block quote or with quotation marks). Both

paraphrase and direct quotation need to be cited. The purpose of such documentation is to

enable the reader to find your source with ease. Failure to document adequately will earn the

score of zero on the paper. Keep the use of quotation to a minimum.
