A Touch of Humor - Instruction

What is the best approach to instructing people? Does it depend on the subject and the people?


  1. Jesus helped us to answer your question Mike. Instead of offering expository instruction from the scriptures he taught in stories and parables. His teachings (exemplified best in the sermon on the mount) always seem to go to the heart of the scriptures and the heart of man.

  2. I would agree that Jesus is the greatest teacher, though I think there are many good ways to teach, (even expository teaching). But certainly we cannot go wrong by following His example.

    1. I suspect that Jesus would use video clips if he taught today. Agree that expository teaching can be good but have found that preachers use it exclusively because they do not seem to be creative enough to teach in parables or something similar.
