2 Timothy 4:1-4
I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.  For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;  And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.  KJV



What does the church of Christ teach about Preaching?

What does the Bible say about Preaching?



Preaching the Word of God has been an integral part of God’s plan of redemption since the very beginning of time.  Paul told Timothy to preach the word.  If you don’t teach, people will turn aside.  II Timothy 4:2-4

In the Old Testament, two different Hebrew words are often translated “preach.”  Let us examine those words now.


1.  Basar (baw-sar')

  • To bring news or bear tidings – good or bad

  • Announce a message:  a birth, death, or military news   I Samuel 31:8-9

  • Refers to preaching  Isaiah 61:1-2

  • Jesus used this passage in referring to Himself.   Luke 4:16-22

  • Paul quotes from Isaiah in Romans 10:14-15.  He stresses the importance of preaching in God’s sight.    Isaiah 52:7

  • Glad tidings of Jesus are preached.    Luke 2

 II.  Qara' (kaw-raw')

  • To proclaim or call out    Psalms 105:1

  • Jonah announced the warning.    Jonah 3:1-4

  • The message was made clear to help people understand.  This is an excellent example of preaching.    Nehemiah 8:1-8

III.  Preaching in the first-century church

  • Peter had something distinctive to say at the beginning of the church.    Acts 2:14, 40-41

  •  People must hear the message.    Acts 11:19-21

  • In Thessalonica Paul explained about the Christ.  His message was distinctive from every other message of the first century.    Acts 17:1-4

  • Many in the first century and many today think that preaching the gospel is foolish.    I Corinthians 1:18-21

  • Preaching is telling the message of the Christ.  As a result of the suffering on the cross, only one faith leads to righteousness.  Many would rather hear    psychology, self-help, or funny stories to help them feel good.   I Timothy 4:2-4


Preach with long suffering.  We must take the message to others.
