This chapter discusses the first chapter of the first disputed book, which was discussed in the previous chapter, as a sample of the whole. It also considers what evidence is to be gathered from the style, vocabulary, and method of argumentation with regards to the original provenance of the book. It is determined that even a single chapter can serve as a rich source of clues to its origin.
