“What does the New Testament teach us about preaching?” Part 4

Tuesday Teaching Tips: Episode 89

The Inspiring Example of Jesus, Mark 6

    1. Teaching that amazes causes a reactionMark 6:2 When the Sabbath came, he began to teach in the synagogue, and many who heard him were amazed.” “Where did this man get these things?” they asked. “What’s this wisdom that has been given him? What are these remarkable miracles he is performing?
      1. Not teaching to create a reaction
      2. But teaching that causes a reaction
      3. Draw out implications and applications 
    2. Teaching that inspires others to teach Mark 6:6 Then Jesus went around teaching from village to village….. Mark 6:30 The apostles gathered around Jesus and reported to him all they had done and taught.
      1. Others active
      2. Draw even more people to Jesus
    3. Teaching when it is inconvenient to teachMark 6:34 When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd. So he began teaching them many things.
      1. Needed quiet / rest
      2. Compassion not exhausted by effort of teaching
      3. See the people, not just the page
