“What does the New Testament teach us about preaching?” Part 1 – Kerusso

Tuesday Teaching Tips, Episode 84

This is part 1 of a four-part series looking at some of the Greek words used to describe teaching and preaching.

We begin with Kerusso.

Here are the references to its use in the NT:

Matt 3:1; 4:17, 23; 9:35; 10:7, 27; 11:1; 24:14; 26:13; Mark 1:4, 7, 14, 38–39, 45; 3:14; 5:20; 6:12; 7:36; 13:10; 14:9; 16:15, 20; Luke 3:3; 4:18–19, 44; 8:1, 39; 9:2; 12:3; 24:47; Acts 8:5; 9:20; 10:37, 42; 15:21; 19:13; 20:25; 28:31; Rom 2:21; 10:8, 14–15; 1 Cor 1:23; 9:27; 15:11–12; 2 Cor 1:19; 4:5; 11:4; Gal 2:2; 5:11; Phil 1:15; Col 1:23; 1 Th 2:9; 1 Tim 3:16; 2 Tim 4:2; 1 Pet 3:19; Rev 5:2

I have seven habits of a herald for us to consider:

  1. Knows he is sent
  2. Knows to whom he is sent
  3. Knows his message
  4. Knows the authority is with the one who sent him
  5. Knows to be humble
  6. Knows to be bold
  7. Knows the response is not his responsibility

Do you have a question about teaching the Bible? Is it theological, technical, practical? Send me your questions or suggestions. Here’s the email: malcolm@malcolmcox.org.

Thanks again for listening and watching. Have a terrific Tuesday, and a wonderful week.

God bless,

Malcolm
