The purpose of this assignment is for you to read a story closely and to come up with a big impression – an idea or a lesson you can take away from it. Although an exegesis can be done to any kind of story, we will be reading a story from the Bible for ENGL.
Please choose one story from the list below and write a 1000-word exegesis paper that follows the outline and structure as provided by the Coursepack, handouts, and lectures. You will need to have an introduction with a proper thesis statement, a background paragraph, 3 body paragraphs, and a conclusion.
