Focus on Galatians 3:23-29, and write an essay in which you…

A. discuss the purpose of the letter to Galatians;

B. carefully explain Paul’s argument in Gal 3:23-29 (Construct that elusive sentence in which you state what the paragraph is saying – what I call the Big Idea), and

C. show how this text reflects what you are learning about Paul’s theology (thought). Remember: we have looked at 1 and 2 Thessalonians and Romans.

The length of the assignment: 600 words.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
