How to Exegete Like the Great Preacher, John Stott

Monday Morning Preacher

How can you exegete like John Stott? In this episode, Matt Woodley and Kevin Miller explore that question. They reflect on Stott’s sermon “The Greatest Invitation Ever Made” that’s based on Matthew 11:28-30, which includes two invitations for listeners.  Sometimes, preachers don’t know what to bring into the sermon and what to leave out. “We dump way too information on our people. We don’t know where to stop,” Matt said. He also indicated that pastors should read the text, observe, listen and slow down. Andy Abernathe, Associate Professor of OT Theology at Wheaton College says “read, read, read” when exegeting the text. Here are four steps you can follow:  Do your exegesis. Find your big idea. Know what to leave out. Give your people a simple path.  Check out what was referenced in this episode: Frederick Dale Bruner’s book Matthew: A Commentary, Volume 2  Learn more about your ad choices.

John Stott, and the Mission of God’s People, with Dr. Christopher Wright

Transforming Discipleship

How can you participate in the mission of God? In this episode, Oliver Hersey and Dr. Christopher Wright, author of The Mission of God: Unlocking the Bible's Grand Narrative discuss prayer, scripture reading, and theological study as ways to enter into God's mission.Dr. Wright said “we need to be men and women of mission. We need to see that we are participating in God’s mission in this world. We need to be followers of Jesus who are about the things that Jesus was about.” In regards to prayer, and issues of social justice – Dr. Wright pointed to the Psalms and said “we need to be praying into the situation into much more Biblical ways.” He also points to the Lord’s Prayer as a way to enter into God’s mission, here on earth. He also serves as the International Ministries Director of Langham Partnership International, a ministry founded by John Stott. Stott realized the church was lacking in resources for pastoral care and teaching. Because of this, he established a number of ministries, which later became known as Langham Partnership. Stott famously said “pastors can’t preach if they don’t study, and they can’t study if they have no books.”Rate Transforming Discipleship on Apple PodcastsFollow the podcast on Twitter and InstagramProduced by Kelsey Bowse, edited by Alex Carter Learn more about your ad choices.

John Stott: Double listening, salt as preservative, incarnational mission, and the challenge of evangelical hagiography

Matters of Life and Death

Last week marked 100 years since the late John Stott was born and there has been a flurry of events to mark the centenary of this highly influential vicar, Bible teacher and evangelical leader. He also had a huge impact on John's own life and career and in this episode we wanted to talk about not just the legacy of Stott’s many decades of ministry, but whether his vision for how Christians can engage well in the public square is still relevant and meaningful today, more than 60 years after he began making the case. Has society long since moved on, or are there still things to learn and challenges to heed from Stott? John's talk and discussion on Stott at LICC - https://johnwyatt.com/2021/05/03/talk-and-discussion-the-life-and-legacy-of-john-stott/ Sermon on lay ministry inspired by Stott at All Souls Church - https://johnwyatt.com/2021/04/26/interview-and-talk-the-john-stott-centenary-biblical-convictions-for-the-contemporary-church/A Glen Scrivener interview with John about his friendship with Stott - https://johnwyatt.com/2021/04/29/interview-the-life-and-legacy-of-john-stott/ See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
