  • END---------go on to Understand your audience
  • Matthew 7:28 the crowds were amazed at his teaching. Matthew 22:33 (TLB) the crowds were profoundly impressed. Mark 11:18 (TLB) - people were so enthusiastic about Jesus' teaching. Mark 12:37 (NASB) - The great crowd enjoyed listening to Him.
  • Wise teachers know to start with the students interests and move them toward the lesson. Effective salesmen know you always start with the customer, not the product. Smart managers know to begin with the employees complaint, not their own agenda. You start where people are and move them to where you want them to be.
  • Entertaining: capturing and holding the attention for an extended period of time.The Bible shows that storytelling was Jesus favorite technique when speaking to the crowd. Jesus spoke all these things to the crowd in parables; he did not say anything to them without using a parable." (Matt. 13:34)Jesus used simple language. He didnt use technical or theological jargon. He spoke in simple terms that normal people could understand
