Preaching Christ from both the Old and New Testaments demands a loyalty to the passages at hand, and a dedication to framing the entire Bible for your listeners. As you look at your own preaching and teaching ministry, remember to keep the focus on Jesus, but never sacrifice the author’s message for the sake of a quick-connection.
