And beginning at Moses and all the Prophets, He expounded to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself… And they said to one another, ‘Did not our heart burn within us while He talked with us on the road, and while He opened
the Scriptures to us?’” Luke 24: 27, 32
500 years ago, 1 January 1519, Ulrich Zwingli, the Swiss Reformer, began expository preaching through the New Testament. In memory of this bold initiative to place the preaching of God’s Word at the centre of church services, we are motivating and equipping preachers with the resources necessary to effectively proclaim, teach and apply God’s Word to their congregations.
The first in the series of FIRE (Fellowship for International Reformation and Evangelism) Preaching Workshops was held on Saturday 16 February. The theme was Preaching From the Book of Genesis. Presentations were given on Genesis Bible Survey Overview; Genesis in Redemptive History; Exegeting the Book of Genesis; Exegetical Practical; Practical Sermon Preparation; Open Discussion and Q&A.
