Teaching the Word - Preparing Bible Lessons and Messages

Course Catalog ID:
Subject Categories:
Academic Elective, Bible and Worldview, New and Improved

The purpose and design of this course is to equip and mentor students in the skills and method of communicating the truth of God’s Word to others in group or public settings. This includes the art of study, preparation, construction, and delivery of biblical lessons, devotionals, sermons, homilies, or bible “talks.” Students will be introduced to an inductive approach of presenting the Word which is able to effectively connect with our culture to share the truth of Scripture. By the conclusion of the course, students will have practiced and will be prepared to share a message from the Word in settings such as youth groups, small groups, online meetings, homeschool co-ops, Sunday school classes, church and chapel services, or through electronic means. In addition to the course textbooks, students will be asked to view various video resources that both instruct and model effective biblical communication for our day. The goal is to guide and develop students who are faithful messengers of God’s Word in whatever settings He may place them and in any opportunity which He may provide. To this end, the course offers more than mere mechanics on message construction, but also leads students to become men and women of the Word in our world at this time and in the future.
