    Hi friends, as we all know that there are different types of preaching, have you ever thought about preaching biblically? What is your definition of preaching? What kind of preaching would be accepted as biblical preaching? How can we different biblical preaching from non-biblical preaching?  Do you think that biblical preaching is important today ?, and if you say yes.. so why?

      You might want to post this under the "questions" section of Hubpages.
      You might not like the responses you are likely to get in this forum.

      I fro one won't answer, because you have put too many components into the question.

      Maybe someone will write a Hub on it.
      Maybe YOU should, and let others comment on it.
      hmm hmm hmm

      I see preaching as making proclamations, these proclamation come from from knowledge of Truth.

      Now since the bible is not and has never been the source of any truth, biblical preaching therefor is a falacy.

    er teaching is better than preaching, no one really likes being preached at.

    What i really means is like preaching from the Pulpit. Normally, the preachers use pulpit for preaching.
    As Joy56(you) say.. i agree that no one really likes being preached at.. but their is a time that pastor, preacher or teachers should preach especially when they are given pulpit sermon.. so we so often listen to sermons and so what kind of sermon would be biblical sermon?

      Now that you clarified, there are two ways.
      1 Preach what God has given you to preach, (from the Bible).
      2 ALL sermons should be biblically based!!

      There are basically three types of sermons.
      1 Topical (Where you preach on a single subject, and refer to various Biblical passages)
      2 Textual (where a text provides the sermon subject, like say John 3;16, and teach on it)
      3 Expository (where a "block" of texts, or an entire passage of scripture is taught)

      I would not be listening to ANY sermons from the pulpit that wasn't Biblically based.

        the problem with that AKA is the poetic liscense some take when they do it.

        the three you describe above would be ideal, and correct to do.. Good answer.

      A biblical sermon is one that uses only what sound doctrine and theology can support. It isn't adding speculations that may contradict other biblical principals, and it also is not making a message out of something not there. The key to a biblical sermon is hermeneutics. This is the study of what the passage said to the people at the time it was written, what it always says throughout all time, and what it means to us today. A good biblical sermon also will include an exhortation on how one should respond to a message, but the exhortation cannot contradict other biblical principles.

    the bible isn't preaching anything.
    as for preaching from the bible, that is very dangerous doctrine.
    my examples for not preaching from it are Immanu El himself, the twelve and about 100+ more who lived the experience people are preached to about, which was merely the beginning.

    I have been lead to a few passages here an there, but my own words and actions have made better progress I assure you.

    do we need more speakers that encourage, uplift and help people renew their minds, certainly. But preachers, by definition, no.

    WRParker86, James, and kess;  I can agree with you all.

    There are many times Jesus was speaking to all of mankind, and often he was talking to those standing right there in front of him.

      I do not understand why many people believe that everything that Jesus said to everyone he spoke to also applies to them.

      Especially when the person writting of the event goes out of their way to express ...  "This was a PRIVATE Conversation between him and us four"

       IF  Jesus were to have a Private conversation with ME ?
    How much of this conversation do you suppose applies to YOU.
            anyone else at any time in the future.
    If the things that Jesus said to Mary M., or Mary his Mom were included in the bible, how much of these conversation would apply to ME or you?

       We have to take many things into account when reading the bible, OR we miss the whole point of the message.

       That is my story and I'm sticking with it.

    Biblical preaching is exactly what it says it is: Bible preaching. Preaching can come in many forms, and with many topics, religious or otherwise. But Biblicalpreaching is only correct when it starts and ends with the Bible. It is focused on God's Words, not man's. Many preachers already have determined what they want to communicate when they pick up the Bible. They try to find something in the Bible that validates and corroborates the point they are seeking to make. But true Biblical preaching requires that you say what the Bible says. Maybe what you are trying to ask, is what is the difference between exegesis and isogesis. Exegesis exports the meaing of the text to the audience. Isogesis imports the meaning.

      Not sure who you are responding to  ? ? ?

        But I agree with what you said more that you can even imagine.

      I don't think that e can understand the  scriptures fully, unless we understand the prophesy.

        AND  I don't think we understand prophesy unless we understand what Daniel 9 is talking about.

        V. 1  first year of Darius  (538 BC)
        V  22  Gabriel says that he has come to give Skill and Understanding to Daniel
        V   23    At the beginning of thy supplication; "THE COMMANDMENT" came forth !"

         Gabriel didn't change the subject when he was talking about this same commandment in v. 25  Know therefore and understand that from the going forth of THE  COMMANDMENT unto Messiah the Prince shall be 69 weeks  And/but they will kill the Messiah after 62 weeks.

        What has happened in this chapter is that an equasion has been presented that compares "Prophetic time and  time as we know it here in the physical realm.

           Ignore this verse and pick and choose those that you like, and you will "always" have to falsely interpret prophesy in order to make it seem to yourself that you have understanding.

         How can people reject the foundation and build a house that will last.

         It is written that Gabriel said these things;  Why does no one believe what he said concerning 62 weeks (Prophetic time)being the same as approx 564 years here on earth?

         Apply this equation any/every time a specific period of time is mentioned in Prophesy .....   and a new understanding will come to life.
