Words like “exegesis” and “exegetical” are thrown around by biblical scholars all the time. Those not in the guild or who haven’t taken courses in biblical languages or hermeneutics might wonder what the terminology means. If that’s you, I recommend reading this short post by Jeff Krantz over at the Logos Bible Software blog. The post takes you through several steps that are pertinent to “doing exegesis” in a biblical passage. The sample is easy to follow (and make sure to watch the short video in the post as well), so I think it does a good job of introducing readers to some components of the exegetical task.
