This paper is intended to be a part of a textbook for learning how to communicate in the Biblical fashion of parallelism. The research question was threefold: Can systematic methodologies be developed that equips ministers to better understand the Biblical message by learning Hebrew literary devices such as proverbs and parallelism? In learning this methodology, can the minister become familiar enough with the literary devices Jesus favored in order to use them? Is there an exegetical benefit to recognizing the form as well as the content?
