On a recent episode of Preaching and Preachers, a podcast hosted by Midwestern Seminary President Jason K. Allen, I gave seven tips for preachers hoping to grow in preaching from Jesus’s Bible.

Here are the seven tips you will hear unpacked in the podcast:

  • Approach the Old Testament as Christian Scripture written for our instruction.
  • Interpret the Old Testament with the same care you would the new.
  • Treat properly the testamental nature of the Old Testament.
  • Remember that the Old Testament is old.
  • Read the Old Testament through the light and lens of Christ.
  • Consider how to faithfully see and celebrate Christ in the Old Testament.
  • Bonus: When preaching from the New Testament, take the time to consider how the authors are using their Bibles.
