Equipped Course Unit 19: Old Testament Poetry
There are three advantages of God’s message being conveyed through poetry over prose. They were
(1) freedom of expression;
(2) identification with the author’s viewpoint;
(3) memorability. So if the poetry of the Old Testament is where we see God’s heart most clearly revealed, we should always be able to trace those characteristics in Jesus Christ himself, the Word made flesh.

This course aims to help train up a new generation of faithful and effective Bible preachers by acquiring and developing the necessary practical tools and skills to expound the Bible's message. This includes both the preparation of the text and the presentation of the preaching, so as to connect that message to our contemporary cultures. The course seeks also to motivate the preacher to progress and perseverance, through spiritual encouragement, not only to be a skilled workman, but also to be maturing as a humble servant, whom God can use.
