Preaching the Biblical Text
Free Online Class Resources
RBC is offering at no cost a podcast and other resources from the class VPS214 PREACHING THE BIBLICAL TEXT. This class, taught by Reuben Sairs, is for all persons who think preaching may be in their future, or are just starting out and want some basic training, but seasoned preachers can also find some useful content here. The material is free to be used however you see fit.
The class examines the preacher’s calling, relationship to the Bible and role in the congregation, and builds on those foundations to study how to develop and deliver sermons. Students will have critical listening assignments and will practice preaching as part of the class.
If you have questions or comments about this page or the course, please email us. Enjoy!
Note on Weeks Nine through Twelve:
Close to the end of the class, more time was spent on student presentations and discussing them. The workshop nature of this part of the class doesn’t lend itself to recording, or listening to recordings. We recorded only parts of classes in weeks nine-twelve: those that have more objective content.
In those weeks the class finishes Haddon Robinson’s textbook and several other class handouts. Those classes are recorded.
