Personally I would do a comparison between the present fad of "discourse"
analysis versus the traditional grmmatical analysis method of examining
Greek texts.  I would ask which method is the most fruitful for exegesis and
interpretation and which is more accurate in describing the texts as they
are.  And I would use sample texts as examples- utilizing discourse
methodologies and traditional historical/grammatical methods.

But thats just me.

(awaiting the fresh onslaught of differeing views)  ;-)
