Equipped Course Unit 23: Preaching the Letters
Establishing the theme tune of the book is especially important for expounding the letters. The below series of questions help us to identify the pastoral application of the apostolic teaching in the letters for us today:
(1) Do you see what your present difficulties are?
(2) Do you realise what are their root causes?
(3) Do you understand who Jesus is and what he has done for you?
(4) Do you see how that addresses your problems?
(5) Are you willing to act on the implications of this, in life-changing ways?

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.
