These are my study notes. They are the foundation upon which my final sermon rests. My exegetical study process looks something like this:
Determine the boundaries of the passage. What marks out the paragraph or pericope in the original text?
Compare translations noting the Hebrew grammar and syntax, when necessary.
Systematically study the entire passage. Included in this process is a read through up to thirty different commentaries, historical, grammatical, cultural and interpretational aids, theological resources, etc. Logos is a big help here. I may even read various books or journal articles that address issues pertaining to the book or passage.
Diagram the passage, analyzing the structure.
Work through a main idea of the passage. What is the subject and complement? I take the main idea and try to boil it down to a single sentence that is put into memorable words.
Put together a sermonic idea and think through the purpose of the sermon or sermon series. The sermonic idea will usually be my title.
Work through several stages of outlining my passage.
Organize my thoughts and hone my study as I transition from my exegetical notes to my sermon notes.
Print my notes and comb through them using different colored pens.
