Each definition you submit should be typed, in complete sentences, as though you might be writing it for an encyclopedia or a specialized dictionary. You should define what the word means, why it is important, and how it may have been used. For each word you need one page and half. Many of these words have several schools of thought, and these should be described, as well as the thinking on the subject from major scholars. These definitions should incorporate, indirectly, what we have said in class. In addition to the knowledge you gain in class, each definition must engage at least two scholarly sources (only one of which can be a theological dictionary or encyclopedia! Look for books and articles, especially books designed to be introductory textbooks for theology students). By engage, I do not mean that you merely put a source in a footnote – engaging a source means that you introduce what the source says or believes, and then build on that or offer a contrary opinion. Your scholarly sources should be properly cited.
Scholarly sources: Start with either the Anchor Bible Dictionary, the New Jerome Biblical Commentary, or the New Interpreters Dictionary of the Bible, all of which are available in the reference section of the Theological library in Mullen. These sources can also give you references to other sources you must use in your paper.
Choose only 4 from these terms you should define:
Prophet (Prophetic Tradition)
please do not forget each one need define what the word means, why it is important, and how it may have been used.
