Graduate students Kendall Davis and Ben Vanderhyde discuss how to get started doing research on a biblical passage whether for preaching, for bible study, or for class. Sometimes it can be hard to know how to start and how to direct your research. The key is learning how to ask questions of the text that guide your research. Kendall and Ben discuss the parable of the wicked tenants (Matthew 21:33–46) as a test case in learning how to ask questions of a text.
