Homiletics…

Once we have all our interpretations in order, we just need to learn how to present them from a pulpit…

“Homiletics comprises the study of the composition and delivery of a sermon or other religious discourse. It includes all forms of preaching, viz., the sermon, homily and catechetical instruction. It may be further defined as the study of the analysis, classification, preparation, composition and delivery of sermons.  …the art of preaching; the branch of practical theology that treats of homilies or sermons. … his homiletics and Pastoral Theology have already become text-books in many theological seminaries.”

What is my problem that I want so badly to stand up in front of people and read to them my apologetic treatise, prepared from my hermeneutical interpretations…. and be able to deliver that in homiletical perfection….?

Jesus told us that even when we get arrested, we don’t have to think about what we are going to say. 

When they arrest you and hand you over, do not worry beforehand about what you are to say, but say whatever is given you in that hour; for it is not you who speak, but it is the Holy Spirit.
When they bring you before the synagogues and the rulers and the authorities, do not worry about how or what you are to speak in your defense, or what you are to say;
I can sure tell you what  my  problem is….  maybe tomorrow.          🙂
