Biblical theology is the bridge between exegesis and systematic theology, so focus on the bridge building in your written submission On that same note, in the topic paper, make sure you stay on the biblical theology side of the bridge. This is especially hard to do when you try to present a debate in your paper. Debates tend to systematic theology. In a biblical theology, I think one should or will touch on debates in a pertinent way (setting the stage or presenting a refuting argument based on biblical theology) but you should not be able to handle the debate thoroughly and do a biblical theology in a paper of this short of a length. What is a good book on this?

Your assignment states to remain on the "biblical theology side of the bridge".

As you disagree, you may get something from a Search for debate  NEAR "biblical theology" e.g.

"But his argument against Weiss is revealing. Unlike Overbeck, whose secularizing program for a “profane” Church history and exclusion of all theological interpretation from the scholarly realm was close to his own, Wrede allowed himself to be drawn on the question of revelation, and showed how his scholarship was guided by positivistic assumptions. Revelation, he said, was “no concern of biblical theology,” but a matter for dogmatics to debate after the biblical scholar has identified the “something” which may or may not be revelation. "
