The third paragraph of the body should contain the weakest argument, weakest example, weakest illustration, or an obvious follow up to the second paragraph in the body. The first sentence of this paragraph should include the reverse hook which ties in with the transitional hook at the end of the second paragraph. The topic for this paragraph should be in the first or second sentence. This topic should relate to the thesis statement in the introductory paragraph. The last sentence in this paragraph should include a transitional concluding hook that signals the reader that this is the final major point being made in this paper. This hook also leads into the last, or concluding, paragraph.
I usually preach from the New King James Version. Most are gradually going to the more modern translations, but I still love the King James Version and think everyone should have a copy. I even have a copy (reproduction) of the original 1611 KJV (the one called the KJV today is actually a version revised in the last half of the 1700s.). I even like the Wycliffe Bible and think we can all gain some valuable insights from these older translations.
