    I hope someone can point me in the right direction.

    I've looked through a bunch of NT surveys, introductions and commentaries and have only found summary-based outlines for texts. I'm looking for analytical outlines, instead, that follow a more verse-by-verse summary, sort of like in the attached image.

    Anyone have any recommendations for where I can find such analytical outlines? websites, books, etc, let me know!
