Minding the Text for the Message

Old Testament

The second module of the program focuses on the essentials of a biblical message.  We are persuaded that all Christian communication begins with the word of God.  Since God’s word is living and active, we must be able to capture its essence and exhibit the fullness of its life through all biblical communication, from Sunday’s message to Monday’s conversation.

This seminar provides students with the opportunity to study the preparation and delivery of biblical messages.  It explores the nature of biblical relevance and the uniqueness of the biblical message in our noisy world of competing ideologies.  It also supplies a framework for extracting ideas from the biblical text with the view of communicating them effectively.
