The Key Word Method of essay preparation and outlining is not a new thing, it's just a thing I've secretly focused on for a number of years! It all started with my Bible Fellowship Class (Sunday School), where in which my teacher would encourage her students to write out the word of the Lord. As the Lord would have it, I later stayed after Bible Study Fellowship for a group Bible Study Fellowship Seminar in which the homiletical method of Bible Study was presented.
My favorite homiletical teacher Donald Hamilton states that the "Key Word Method proves to be the most useful, once it is mastered." The Key Word Method requires at least two parallel ideas in the text that are related or not related, one to the other. The typical/basic Key Word Method of study requires at least twelve steps. But, as usual I have redesigned or shall we say added several steps to our Key Word Study Method.
The steps I've added are basically the research of similar and or like words amid the Biblical Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic languages.
