“What does the New Testament teach us about preaching?” Part 3 – ‘peitho’

Tuesday Teaching Tips: Episode 86

This is part 3 of a four-part series looking at some of the Greek words used to describe teaching and preaching. We continue with ‘peitho’.

Here are the references to its use in the NT: Matt 27:20, 43; 28:14; Luke 11:22; 16:31; 18:9; 20:6; Acts 5:36–37, 40; 12:20; 13:43; 14:19; 17:4; 18:4; 19:8, 26; 21:14; 23:21; 26:26, 28; 27:11; 28:23–24; Rom 2:8, 19; 8:38; 14:14; 15:14; 2 Cor 1:9; 2:3; 5:11; 10:7; Gal 1:10; 5:7, 10; Phil 1:6, 14, 25; 2:24; 3:3–4; 2 Th 3:4; 2 Tim 1:5, 12; Philem 1:21; Heb 2:13; 6:9; 13:17–18; James 3:3; 1 John 3:19

I have three tips for us to consider from its use in Acts 17

  1. Of what do your audience need persuading?
  2. Do you display conviction?
  3. From Problem to Solution

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 watching. Have a terrific Tuesday, and a wonderful week.

God bless,

Malcolm
