BLOCK DIAGRAM INSTRUCTIONS The goal of this exercise is to divide the passage into sections, identify the main point(s), and determine how the remaining phrases relate to the main point(s). The skills gained through this exercise will enable you to examine the structure of any biblical text for research or teaching/preaching preparation. Use single-spacing, 1 margins, Times New Roman, 12 pt. font to format your paper, and use the tab key to indent each supporting or subordinate thought (you will likely have several layers of indentation). Be sure to include verse numbering on the far left of the page, and indicate at the top of the page the chosen passage and the translation you have used for your diagram. Since you are looking at grammatical structure, you should use a formal equivalent translation such as the ASV, CEV, ESV, NASB, NRSV, REB, or RSV.
