THE PREACHING THE GOOD NEWS THAT SAVES LIVES (Part 1)

The Preaching is a Proclamation

The Greek word translated as “to preach” is “κηρύσσω” ((kēryssō) (Strong’s Concordance (G2784)), “to herald as public screaming”. Preaching is a public proclamation. Even though preaching is a simple teaching, it is not to be confused with the pedagogical basic teaching of the Bible, mentioned in Matthew 28:20: “teaching them to observe all the things I have commanded you” (Matthew 28:20) (“teaching”: (διδάσκω (disdasko) (Strong’s Concordance “To teach” (G1321)). We can take two examples that show the simplicity of a message preached, often by a simple sentence, and a detailed teaching in the form of a public speech:

Preaching: “From that time on, Jesus began preaching (kēryssō) and saying: “Repent, for the Kingdom of the heavens has drawn near”” (Matthew 4:17). In Luke 10:9, as Jesus Christ sends 70 of his disciples to preach ahead of him. He gives them exactly the same simple theme of proclamation: “The Kingdom of God has come near to you”.

The more detailed biblical teaching in the form of a speech: “When he saw the crowds, he went up on the mountain; and after he sat down, his disciples came to him. Then he opened his mouth and began teaching them (disdasko), saying” (Matthew 5:1,2). Thus, the Sermon on the Mount is not a mere public proclamation, but a detailed biblical teaching in the form of a public speech of about half an hour (in that case).
