What you'll learn
  • Demonstrates how to take the Bible and make it come alive to the modern mind, so that it might not sound like something addressed to another age and to another people.
  • Without Scripture we have no Christ. Without Scripture we have no preaching. Yet here is the irony. When the preacher is viewed simply as ‘explainer and applier’ of God’s word (the bible), this results in a lower view of Scripture.
  • Exegesis can help us in many ways, but it finally cannot do what is most important: tell us what this text wishes to say on this occasion to our congregation. The preacher must decide this, and it is a risky and exciting decision.
Requirements
  • Beware of anyone who presumes to have the final word on how to prepare a sermon. We should also beware of anyone who thinks that preaching cannot be discussed, cannot be criticized, or cannot be improved.
Description

This course does not assume that it can replace years of academic discipline and training. But Dr. Phillips believes that this course is a toolkit that advances the case for flexibility in the purposes of each sermon. The preacher is obliged to:

First ask what the text was designed to accomplish.

and

Second, the preacher must humbly admit that he or she is not capable of accomplishing change in the hearts of the hearers. That is the role of the Spirit.

Nevertheless, it recognizes that our ability to help the congregation understand the Word can affect the way the Spirit uses the text.

Once we acknowledge that the sermon is customarily given in an institutionalized setting, with regularity and continuity, and once we recognize how different our setting is from the earliest sermons of John the Baptist, Simon Peter, and Paul, we then have to determine what the criteria are for success and effectiveness today.
