Post 1: SV

Introductions and conclusions can often be the most difficult in any speech, paper or sermon. The body will have the most information but getting the point started or summed up at the end can be challenging. Sometimes, the introduction can be the most important part of a sermon. This is going to “make or break” the sermon. A strong introduction will be pivotal to the audience/congregation and whether they continue to listen or not. Yes, they might be obligated to sit through the whole service but the listening is optional! My pastor has often asked a question, told a story or used humor to begin the topic of the sermon. This always works to get my attention and engaged in his words. Our text talks about different ways to

First, I would suggest to the pastor that he create a “surefire proposition” (Cartwright et al, 2016 p 173). This will help create the introduction to the sermon. As mentioned above, this is the most important part! The surefire proposition  

Second, I would encourage the pastor to create a block diagram. I love this idea in our text! I feel like you could almost do this with any text that will need a speech or paper. This will allow the pastor to gather the main ideas of the passages and have them broken down into three distinct points. This will also help tie in the main idea from the introduction. The block diagram can also be broken down into subsections to delve deeper into each passage.

The conclusion will help tie all the introduction as well as the main points together. This is almost as important as the introduction. As our text states, “If you consider the main part of your lesson as a flight, your conclusion is the landing. Bad landings (conclusions) can make great flights (lessons) forgettable” (Cartwright et al, 2016 p 188). This is absolutely correct! If the conclusion is bad, even the best sermon will get lost in translation. To help the pastor have a good conclusion I would suggest the conclusion circle back around to introduction and encompass the main points. It will need to be brief but tie all of the sermons together. I liked that our text said the conclusion needs to a “so what”. This is a good way to put it. If you can answer the “so what” of your own sermon, then you will be able to have a good conclusion.

 By following certain steps when doing your Bible studies, one tends to pick up on little nuances or starts to understand certain things a bit better. So, when choosing a topic of discussion when having to teach or discuss with others we should go back to how we study the Bible and apply the same outline for our topic.      

We should start out with our main thought, the topic of our discussion. Now we take that main idea along with scriptures that we want to discuss that thought and break them down by using a block diagram (Cartwright/ Hulshof, 2016, ch.31). Now determine how many main sections there are to the passages and summarize them. At this point, one can start creating the outline for their discussion. At this point, the authors tell us to pause and see if our main sections can be broken down further. The process just helps to identify if one can further expand on the main idea of the topic of discussion.

At this point, we have our topic of discussion and a basic outline on which to expand upon. This is where we go back and use the skills we have learned when doing our own Bible studies and applying them to our outline. Now is the time to look at various translations for the verse(s) chosen, geographical considerations, asking the who, what, when, where, why and how questions, as well as things like historical context. Mark 4:11-13(New International Version 2011) says, “He told them, “The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you. But to those on the outside everything is said in parables so that they may be ever seeing but not perceiving, and ever hearing but not understanding; otherwise, they might turn and be forgiven!” Then Jesus said to them, “Don’t you understand this parable? How then will you understand any parable?” Understanding what is truly being said is key, it will unlock other scriptures for us to understand better.

I feel that this portion of Bible study is where the biggest connection to teaching your topic is the most relevant. This is the meat and potatoes of your discussion. By taking the skills we have learned about truly studying the Bible, one can tailor the discussion to their audience. This is where we can see how this passage relates to today’s society and what’s going on around us. Our skills should be able to help us tell what the author of that passage is really trying to say in terms that we all can understand. To me, it’s the most meaningful part taking what the scripture is saying and applying it to our lives as we live today. It was relevant then as it is now. Sometimes it’s just not that easy of a read to understand in our old traditional King James Version. That is why studying the Bible in the ways we have learned is so very helpful when trying to make an outline for our topic of Biblical discussion.
