Holy grail of preaching

A good preacher or teacher desires to teach God's word; his intended meaning, not merely his own opinion of scripture. Paul calls it prophesying. [1]

In the sermon on the road, Jesus revealed the mysteries which had been hidden in all the prophets. [2] [3]

As the disciples thereafter studied the scriptures, they remembered what Jesus taught before the cross, and coupled it with what he taught on the road. The Gospels are snapshots of their learning, over time, of the progress in their understanding. [4]

The Gospels are 'updates' of the current teaching in the Jewish churches at ten to fifteen year intervals, given to the Gentile churches which did not study the Hebrew for themselves. [5]
  1. 1Co 14:1 ¶ Follow after charity, and desire spiritual [gifts], but rather that ye may prophesy.
  2. Lu 24:25 Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken:
  3. Lu 24:27 And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.
  4. Solution to the 'Synoptic problem'
  5. Gentiles did not study the Hebrew Bible
