Everyone eventually needs help. There have been times when I have been staring at a Biblical text with the deadline of Sunday staring me in my face. I had no idea what the main idea of the passage was. I was not above asking for help.
I have phoned others preachers. I have phoned professors (both past and current). I have walked across the hall and talked to staff about the passage. I’ve also brainstormed through the text with my wife (this is a clear sign that she loves me and is a gift).
So let’s help each other.
Going forward, I’ll post a passage here that we can work on together. You can also leave a comment in this thread about the biblical text you are working on.
Wrestling through the Bible with others works for classrooms. It works for small groups. Why not the development of a sermon?
Question: What text are you working on? What do you believe the main idea of that text is? What is giving you problems?
