Arc, Trace and Diagram! The Bones of Exegesis!

Gazing at Glory: Arcing and Tracing

Thanks to Doug Smith there is now an assembly of some really great articles on arcing and tracing. This is one of the most important tools in the exegete's toolbox.

When I was in seminary, our preferred method was labelled, "diagrammatical analysis." I still use that method, although it has been tweaked through the years by the arcing idea... and, of course, the emphasis on broader context and literary genre that men like Carson model so well.

Anyway, in case you missed it over the weekend, Challies linked to this page and I have downloaded all the articles. If you are an aspiring or well-seasoned student of the Word, I commend each of them to you!
