- Pericope Bibliography - a helpful resource containing the most important works that pertain to each particular pericope.
- Translation - the author's own translation of the biblical text, reflecting the end result of exegesis and attending to Hebrew and Greek idiomatic usage of words, phrases, and tenses, yet in reasonably good English.

- Form/Structure/Setting - a discussion of redaction, genre, sources, and tradition as they concern the origin of the pericope, its canonical form, and its relation to the biblical and extra-biblical contexts in order to illuminate the structure and character of the pericope. Rhetorical or compositional features important to understanding the passage are also introduced here.
- Comment - verse-by-verse interpretation of the text and dialogue with other interpreters, engaging with current opinion and scholarly research.
