Weekly outline

  • General

    Welcome to Expository Preaching: An Introduction. I look forward to the opportunity to think with you about preaching and help you develop as a preacher. 

    Below you will find a short introductory video and the Unit Outline. These will orient you to how the course will work, the assessments, readings, forum etc. Please make sure you are very familiar with the Unit Guide.

    Please note that there is some work to be done before the Intensive, so you will need to get started on that early. 

    The first online lecture will be available on 19th July.

    The Intensive begins at 1.00pm on 23rd August. 

    If you have any questions, please send me an email: mcapill@rtc.edu.au.

    Every blessing,
    Murray

    PREACHING AND PREACHERS

    The first online lecture is in two parts. Please watch both parts (just over an hour all up), do the required readings and the additional ones if you can, and then respond on the forum below. 

  • 26 July - 1 August


    THE AUTHORITY OF PREACHING

    This week again there are two parts to the lecture, plus some readings and the forum. Please make sure you at least do the "Required Readings" and interact with them in your forum posts. 

  • 2 August - 8 August


    THE POWER OF PREACHING

    This is the third and final online lecture week. There is just one, longer video for this topic, as well as readings and the forum. 

    Remember to also work on your short message for the Intensive. 

  • 9 August - 15 August

    There is no new lecture material this week so this is a good time to prepare for the Intensive.

    First, make sure you are working on your short talk that is due to be submitted on 23 August and preached at the intensive.

    Second, you might like to look at the Intensive Reading Guide and do some reading in advance for the Intensive. There are recommended readings from three main books that are worth buying, and a number of other readings provided online.
