This brief article shows the basic steps of exegesis, showing how to use e-Sword. The exercises lead the student through an analysis of Psalm 42.
We recommend studying the article with a pastor or mentor, and in groups if possible.
We recommend that the mentor measure the student's progress by evaluating a finished exegesis project.
