Pastors' In-Service Sessions (Part 2) | PM Session

Saturday, June 19, 2010

PM Session:
1:30 to 3:30

Describing or Declaring the Law and Gospel, What is a Sermon?
(working title)

Paul instructs, “Preach the Word.” God works through the foolishness of preaching.

In studying Scripture, pastors need to address textual facts and questions. Pastors need to understand how theological tools (concepts) such as Law and Gospel assist in understanding and correctly applying the Scripture. These studies, perhaps by necessity, employ descriptive and explanatory speech.

Is preaching the same as explaining? How should a sermon address the congregation’s need of repentance of sin and receiving God’s grace?

Questions for this session might include:
  • “What is preaching?”
  • “What is the purpose in public worship or in soul care?”
  • “What is the relationship between declaring and describing God’s Word?”
  • “When is it important to describe the Law and Gospel?”
  • “Does a description of the Law and the Gospel have the same power as the proclamation of the Word of the Law and the Word of the Gospel?”

Presenter: Rev. Dale Hanson
