Areas from which to choose your topic:
The topics below are broad. You will need to read and reflect on them, using other sources where
helpful.
Questions Choose One
1 In what ways, social, political, or religious, does the modern world differ from the Mediterranean?
2. How does Mark highlight Jesus as the suffering Messiah? How do you react to this treatment?
3. Compare and contrast the Sadducees, Pharisees, Essenes, and Christians in relation to their view
about the Torah and the Messiah.
4. How did Constantine contribute to the success of Christianity?
Requirements
Plan your essay around a strong thesis sentence that guides the reader though the coherent and logical
development of your topic. A good argument paper takes a position but also shows awareness of other
points of view. The first paragraph should contain your thesis sentence and suggest briefly how you will
develop it.
Avoid simple summary or disconnected fragments. Make each paragraph develop your main point.
Include supporting details, references to relevant texts, logical thinking. Avoid sweeping
generalizations.

Although the assignment does not emphasize research. it does require careful reading of
relevant texts. Paragraph by paragraph, supported your ideas by references and examples. If
you choose a scriptural topic, be sure your Bible has good footnotes. Consult a commentary in
the reference section of the library.

INTERNET SOURCES ARE NOT ACCEPTABLE FOR THIS PAPER. Sources must be properly cited
using MLA guidelines. In general, you should avoid long direct quotes. If you must use one,
follow MLA guidelines.

Revise your paper to see that the writing is fluid and expresses your ideas clearly. It helps to
keep your audience in mind. Many find it helpful to read their sentences aloud and also review
a hard copy.

Papers should be about three pages, double spaced. Put your name, the class section, and date
on the left corner of your front page. Center the title. Do staple or clip pages. The professor is
not responsible for stapling or tracking down your stray pages. Use the MLA guidelines for
citations. I will give you further instructions on how to submit it on line, but I also require a hard
copy on the date due.

The final copy is not a draft for further revision. I do not read papers prior to submission. You
will be given opportunity for peer review, and I will discuss specific issues with you. Questions
about Plagiarism will be resolved by the Academic Integrity Committee and will result in failure
on the paper and whatever penalty the Committee imposes.

If you need help, I recommend that you go to CTL where the tutors will assist you, but make sure
that it is your work (and not that of a tutor or anyone else) that is submitted.

FINAL DATE FOR SUBMISSION Nov.13
Online and hard copy submission required (Nov.12-13). I will give further instructions about the
