PAS 203 Preaching and Teaching the Scripture

This course orients students to the homiletical task of pastoral ministry: rightly handling the Word of God. By means of constructing a biblical theology of preaching focused in the Book of Hebrews, students will understand the role of preaching and teaching within the framework of God’s greater purposes, expand upon their skills in biblical exegesis and textual exposition, and develop basic competencies in sermon design and delivery. With the addition of a preaching lab, students will gain experience in preaching sermons, benefit from timely and evaluative feedback, and discover the importance of sermon assessment in a charitable and interactive class setting. (3 credits).
