-You want it in "your own words…i.e. natural"​ but 100% CONTENT accurate (+pronouns changed to proper names). You can record yourself and then transcribe out the text. It would be good to have a national do the same…nationals invariably put the story into better language than we do. I would then think through the "​scenes"​ of the story…usually 4-5 (for a 10-15 verse story). Next get on youtube and study how storyboards are done. After you get the scenes then you can draw out (I'm not a good drawer, but use stick figures) into the boxes ({{:​storyboard.pdf|Storyboard}} ) what is going on in each scene…underneath write in the text of the bible story that goes with the scene.\\+You want it in "your own words…i.e. natural"​ but 100% CONTENT accurate (+pronouns changed to proper names).

 For sure you want to do most all the things you do in prep for a sermon. I want to know the context well. However, intros to stories must be short … for Blind Bartimeus I emphasize: 1) X is passing by Jericho for last time 2) disciples are arguing over who is greatest 3) I define Bart = Son of Honor 4) Define "Son of David" 5) NAS has "I want to regain my sight" - (not simply "I want to see"​)….all of these will be important when you unpack the story.\\ For sure you want to do most all the things you do in prep for a sermon.
