Introduction to Christian Education: Section 5 Introduction to Christian Education: Section 5 Presentation Transcript

  • Law 5 The Law of the Heart Sunday, 11 August 13
  • Teaching that impacts is not head to head, but heart to heart Sunday, 11 August 13
  • What is the heart in biblical understanding? Not the mushy, imprecise thing we hear of today. Deut 6:4-6 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Sunday, 11 August 13
  • In Hebrew thought heart embraced the totality of your personality - your intellect, emotions and will. Therefore the process of teaching is, “one personality transformed by the supernatural grace of God, reaching out to transform other personalities by the same grace.” Sunday, 11 August 13
  • Character-Compassion- Content Socrates summarised communication using three words; Ethos - character Pathos - compassion Logos - content Sunday, 11 August 13
  • Character-Compassion- Content Socrates summarised communication using three words; Ethos - character Pathos - compassion Logos - content Sunday, 11 August 13
  • Character for Socrates, meant establishing the credibility of the teacher, your credentials. Who you are is far more important that what you say or do because it determines what you say or do. People listen to you because of who you are. Sunday, 11 August 13
  • Compassion, meant how the teacher arouses the passions and emotions of the students. Emotions run in the direction of action. So motivation comes out of emotions as God created us as emotional beings. Sunday, 11 August 13
  • Logos was the word used by Socrates for content; as used in John 1;1-2 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning ...The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. When God wanted to speak to us he put his message in a person. As teachers we follow the same principle. Sunday, 11 August 13
  • Sunday, 11 August 13
  • You can teach without character, without compassion and without content - but how would that make students feel?! Sunday, 11 August 13
  • You can teach without character, without compassion and without content - but how would that make students feel?! The teachers character produces the learners confidence Sunday, 11 August 13
  • You can teach without character, without compassion and without content - but how would that make students feel?! The teachers character produces the learners confidence Ask: Is there something you see in the life of your teachers that makes you think there is something significant they can contribute to you? Sunday, 11 August 13
  • Most importantly you should be trustworthy as a teacher. You should not be a liar. As a teacher ask yourself: “What kind of person am I?” Sunday, 11 August 13
  • As a teacher your compassion produces the learners motivation. If I think you love me I will be more eager to do things for you. The disciples were motivated (and drawn to him) by the love they saw Jesus had for them. Sunday, 11 August 13
  • How do you feel about people? Do they bother you? Do they challenge you? Do you like people? Do they threaten you? Sunday, 11 August 13
  • Your content produces the learners perception You as the teacher have seen something - now I as the learner see it. It has to become part of ‘me’, I discover it, it is now mine. Good teachers have great heart Sunday, 11 August 13

  • Teaching that impacts is not head to head, but heart to heart Sunday, 11 August 13
  • The Teaching-Learning Process What is teaching, what is learning? A very simple definition: Teaching is causing people to learn The relationship between the teaching and learning process is inseparable - if the learner has not learned we have not taught. Sunday, 11 August 13
  • The Teaching-Learning Process As a teacher your effectiveness is determined or tested by what the student does as a result of your actions. Sunday, 11 August 13
  • Simplest definition of learning: learning is change - a change in your thinking - a change in your feeling - a change in your behaviour. (Mind, will, emotions) Sunday, 11 August 13
  • And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. Romans 8:28-29 Sunday, 11 August 13
  • Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:1-2 Sunday, 11 August 13
  • Put the two passages together and you see God’s plan - you are made to be like Jesus, not like the world. How does this happen? By the renewing of your mind. It is radical change Then after receiving this revelation from God you are responsible for what you do with it. Sunday, 11 August 13

  • Where Learning Begins Hendricks, “All learning begins at the feeling level” Sunday, 11 August 13
  • Where Learning Begins Hendricks, “All learning begins at the feeling level” A person has a positive attitude - they accept what they hear; if a negative attitude they reject it. If I feel negatively about you - I reject what you are saying as I have rejected you. Sunday, 11 August 13
  • If I like you - and if I know you are interested in me - you can get me to do incredible things. And there is also a possibility that I’m going to like your Lord, who made you the way you are. Sunday, 11 August 13
  • If I like you - and if I know you are interested in me - you can get me to do incredible things. And there is also a possibility that I’m going to like your Lord, who made you the way you are. No one cares about what you know until they know that you care Do you agree? Sunday, 11 August 13
  • Hendricks suggests that your need is to win the heart of the student. Imagine each student with a gun in their hand - you job is to take the gun and lay it down - you do this by relationship with them. You do it by establishing rapport so that your student is free to interact with you on the subject you are teaching. You do it by touching hearts Sunday, 11 August 13
  • •Tell them you will pray for them, and will be there for them •Take them out for a coke, say you know how hard it is to be a teenager •Admire something about them - like shoes In effect Hendricks suggests you try to show you are on the same team. Hedndricks suggests you cannot ignore a persons attitude - but you can work to change it. How would you work to change the mind / attitude of a student? Sunday, 11 August 13

  • Teaching that impacts is not head to head, but heart to heart Sunday, 11 August 13
  • Never forget the Facts Remember content is important What you believe - and therefore teach - is vital in determining your behaviour. So if you believe correctly - you will behave correctly. We believe the Bible is God’s revelation to mankind - and that God wants us to understand it by studying it. Sunday, 11 August 13
  • Christianity is based on facts - 1 Cor. 15 Christ died He was buried He rose from the dead He appeared to certain people Knowing the facts (in the right order) is critically important. Sunday, 11 August 13
  • Until the mind has been changed, and the emotions have been changed, and the will has been changed, biblical teaching has not taken place. Sunday, 11 August 13
  • How do we apply what has been said in teaching our class? Sunday, 11 August 13
  • How do we apply what has been said in teaching our class? We must be a person of impact Sunday, 11 August 13
  • 1. Know your Students Repeating what was said in an earlier section. If you know their needs - you are better able to meet them. The price tag is commitment and time! Sunday, 11 August 13
  • Get personally involved with students - inside and outside of the class. Stay late, be ‘around’, be involved, stay with them, let them see the real you... Sunday, 11 August 13
  • Get personally involved with students - inside and outside of the class. Stay late, be ‘around’, be involved, stay with them, let them see the real you... You can impress people at a distance. But you can impact them only up close. Sunday, 11 August 13
  • 2. Earn the right to be heard Credibility always precedes communication. Ordinary people get extraordinary ministries because they have earned this right - they are not celebrities but they are life changers. Win the right to be heard Sunday, 11 August 13
