As the writer of an essay, you're essentially a lawyer arguing in behalf of a client (your thesis) before a judge (the reader) who will decide the case (agree or disagree with you).
So, begin as a lawyer would, by laying out the facts to the judge in the way you think it will help your client best.
This process of presentation and cross-examination is equivalent to the "body" of your essay.

It's not a murder mystery, for instance, full of surprising plot twists or unexpected revelations. Instead, lay everything out ahead of time so the reader can follow your argument easily.
