Part 1: Project Plan
Submit a Project Plan, to include the following:
Topic – Choose one: Mary, costly discipleship, the death of Jesus, the kingdom of God, or the Gentiles.
Thesis – What is the central message/argument of the paper? See the APU Writing Center resource Thesis Statements for help.
Resources – The paper must reference:
o The Drama of Scripture;
o The accompanying topic article found in the course;
o Two additional sources from the APU Library; see the APU Writing Center’s
Research Tips and Resources for suggestions about finding good resources. o NOTE: In APA style, classical works – including the Bible – are not listed in the
References page. Embed biblical citations within the text as follows: “Then Jesus called the twelve together and gave them power and authority over all demons to cure diseases, and he sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal” (Luke 9:1-2, NRSV). Only indicate the Bible version in the first citation; it is not necessary to identify each citation as NRSV.
Outline – Organize the paper to address the following four assignment questions:
1. How does the topic (Mary, costly discipleship, the death of Jesus, the kingdom of
God, or the Gentiles) connect to the larger themes of creation, fall, and
redemption within the overarching story of the Bible?
2. What is important to know about the history, culture, and/or theology surrounding
this person or concept?
3. What was the original meaning of this concept or significance of this
person/people within Luke/Acts?
4. What insights gained could be meaningful for our context today?
Submit the assignment in Times New Roman 12-point font.
The Project Plan is 2 pages in length.
Outline identifies the introduction/thesis statement, at least four main ideas, and 3-4 sub-
points beneath each main idea.
List references in APA format.
