Communicators Training Ses 1

  1. 1. Welcome to<br />Communicators Training<br />
  2. 2. We need effectivecommunicators today<br />2 Timothy 4:1-5<br />1 In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge: 2 Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage -- with great patience and careful instruction.<br />
  3. 3. We need effectivecommunicators today<br />2 Timothy 4:1-5<br />3 For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. <br />
  4. 4. We need effectivecommunicators today<br />2 Timothy 4:1-5<br />4 They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. 5 But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry. <br />

  15. 15. How to exegete?<br />The goal of exegesis:<br />TO UNDERSTAND…<br />What the original author was talking about (Theme)<br />What the original author wanted to focus on (Topic)<br />What the original author wanted to say to his original audience about what he was talking about (Truth)<br />Why the original author wanted to say this (Thrust)<br />
  16. 16. How to exegete?<br />The Theme is…<br />A broad category or subject matter that pertains to man’s real need regardless of the situation or culture.<br />A broad category or subject matter that God wants to talk about because it is important for us to know and understand.<br />Examples: Salvation, Prayer, Discipleship<br />
  17. 17. How to exegete?<br />The Topic is…<br />A narrow concern within the theme or subject matter<br />A question that dominates the text (above all other topics that may be in the text)<br />Examples: How to be saved, Why prayer is important, How people should follow Christ<br />
  18. 18. How to exegete?<br />The Truth is…<br />A revelation from God<br />An indicative statement that reveals what is really true at all times (i.e. a universal truth)<br />Examples: People can only be saved by grace through faith, Prayer is important because it is the Christian’s connection with God, People should follow Christ as true disciples because He is Lord<br />
  19. 19. How to exegete?<br />The Thrust is…<br />The reason why the original author wanted to talk about what he talked about in the text<br />The reason why the Holy Spirit included the text in the Bible in the first place<br />Examples: People must not trust in themselves or their good works, People must not neglect prayer, People should follow Christ as true disciples and not just to meet their personal needs<br />
  20. 20. How to exegete? (The Basics)<br />Pray for God to give you understanding<br />Select a good translation of the Bible as your main study Bible (NASB, NKJV, NRSV)<br />Get other translations as possible references<br />Identify the type of literature you’re studying (Narrative, Poetry, etc.)<br />Determine the limits of your passage based on the type of literature (where does it begin & end)<br />Know the background of the book you’re studying<br />
  21. 21. How to exegete? (DIG process)<br />Read the text several times, then…<br />Discover the details of the text<br />Observe the SALT of the text: Structure, Atmosphere, Literary features of the text, and the Terms (or words used)<br />Interpret the details of the text<br />Ask pertinent questions regarding your observations (e.g. Why did the author include this? What does he mean?)<br />Look for answers within the text, around the text, in other texts by the same author, in other texts by different authors (Note: In this sequence)<br />
  22. 22. How to exegete?<br />Verify your answers (i.e. your interpretations) by checking with other interpreters (i.e. commentaries, handbooks, dictionaries, other sermons, etc.)<br />Generate key statements<br />Summarize your findings by stating the theme, topic (in question form but not with a question mark), truth statement (a full sentence) and the thrust statement (also a full sentence). Use the original context.<br />Ask God to reveal the personal relevance of what you have discovered before you think about your audience. Let God speak to YOU first.<br />
  23. 23. Sample Exegesis<br />Text:<br />Ephesians 1:3-14<br />Theme:<br />Gratitude for Salvation<br />Topic:<br />Why the believers in Ephesus must be grateful to God for their salvation<br />Truth:<br />The believers in Ephesus must be grateful to God for their salvation because by grace they have received every spiritual blessing in Christ.<br />Thrust:<br />Paul wanted the believers to be grateful to God for their salvation because he wanted them to appreciate the grace of God in their lives.<br />
  24. 24. Sample Exegesis<br />Text:<br />Ephesians 1:15-23<br />Theme:<br />Prayer for the Ephesians<br />Topic:<br />What Paul always prayed for<br />Truth:<br />Paul always prayed for the Ephesian believers to know more of Christ and for them to know more of His blessings through the Holy Spirit.<br />Thrust:<br />Paul always prayed for the believers in Ephesus because he wanted them to grow in Christ.<br />
  25. 25. Sample Exegesis<br />Text:<br />Ephesians 2:1-10<br />Theme:<br />Salvation<br />Topic:<br />How and why the Ephesian believers were saved<br />Truth:<br />The Ephesian believers were saved by grace through faith, not by their good works, but so that they would do good works for the glory of God.<br />Thrust:<br />Paul wanted the believers in Ephesus to know how and why they were saved so that they would appreciate God’s grace in their lives.<br />
  26. 26. How to exegete in a simple way<br />Silence your world<br />Invite the Holy Spirit<br />Meditate on the His word<br />Pray according to His word<br />Listen for the practical application<br />End with thanksgiving<br />Life Journaling<br />
  27. 27. The Goal must be the same!<br />To communicate the word, you must still generate key statements:<br />Theme<br />Topic<br />Truth<br />Thrust<br />
  28. 28. Sample of Life Journal<br />Date: Aug 22, 2009<br />Title: Being Grateful to God<br />Text:<br />Ephesians 1:3 “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.”<br />God’s message to me:<br />I must always be grateful to God for all that He has given me in Christ Jesus, because He has given me every spiritual blessing I would ever need. Praise God!<br />My prayer:<br />Lord, thank you for all that you have given me in Christ Jesus. Help me to be always grateful to you and to never forget what you have done for me. In Jesus’ name. Amen.<br />My application:<br />I will practice saying ‘thank you’ to the Lord for saving me every time I wake up and before I sleep for at least seven days or until it becomes a habit for me.<br />
  29. 29. Sample Exegesis based on Life Journal<br />Text: Ephesians 1:3 “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.”<br />God’s message to me:<br />I must always be grateful to God for all that He has given me in Christ Jesus, because He has given me every spiritual blessing I would ever need. Praise God!<br />Theme: Gratitude<br />Topic: Why Christians must be grateful to God<br />Truth: Christians must be grateful to God because He has given them every spiritual blessing in Christ.<br />Thrust: Christians must always remember what God has done for them in Christ so that they will always be grateful to Him.<br />
  30. 30. Doing exposition<br />The goal of exposition is also…<br />TO UNDERSTAND…<br />The real needs of your audience in light of the theme and topic of the text (True Need)<br />What God wanted to say to your present audience in light of the theme and topic of the text (Thesis)<br />How you would to say the main point to your audience in a way that would meet their real needs and fulfill God’s intended purpose for them (Turning Point)<br />How you can make the main point stick to your audience’s mind (Tagline)<br />
  31. 31. Doing exposition<br />To know the True Need of your Target Audience…<br />Know your audience (adults, youth, etc.) and the circumstance when you will be speaking to them (SWC, FNH, etc.).<br />Examine their beliefs and behavior in relation to the theme and topic of the text: What do they really believe about this? How do they speak or act in light of these beliefs? Try to examine the thinking behind their words and actions.<br />Think of specifics as much as possible. Come up with examples, etc. Then write down your thoughts.<br />
  32. 32. Example of True Need<br />Let’s say the theme is Gratitudeand the topic is Why Christians must be grateful to God…<br />You can express the True Need like this:<br />Audience: Young people during FNH<br />Beliefs and Behavior:A lot of young people feel defeated when they fall into sin. They assume that they have failed God again. They look down at themselves and they give up on their faith. They return to their old ways because they feel that they cannot really change.<br />Examples: Young people going back to smoking and drinking after being saved<br />
  33. 33. Doing exposition<br />To come up with your Thesis…<br />State the truth of the text in such a way that it would be relevant to your target audience.<br />State the thrust of the text in such a way that it can be applied by your target audience.<br />Combine the two statements into one sentence (i.e. your Thesis).<br />Note: You don’t need to state your Thesis in your actual talk. But it should GUIDE your whole talk! It’s the glue that holds everything together.<br />
  34. 34. Example of Thesis<br />Let’s say the original truth and the thrust of the text are as follows:<br />Truth:Christians must be grateful to God because He has given them every spiritual blessing in Christ.<br />You can state the Truth this way: Christ has given all for you.<br />Thrust:Christians must always remember what God has done for them in Christ so that they will always be grateful to Him.<br />You can apply the Thrust this way: You must always be grateful and not forgetful of His grace.<br />Therefore your Thesis can be:Since Christ has given all for you, you must always be grateful and not forgetful of His grace.<br />
  35. 35. Doing exposition<br />To come up with your Turning Point…<br />State your Thesis in such a way that it would become memorable and life-changing once your target audience hears it.<br />Come up with one short but crisp sentence that captures the essence of your Thesis. It can be an insight, principle or application of the Thesis.<br />Note: Although you don’t have to state your Thesis in your actual talk, you MUST state your Turning Point in your talk. It’s what people would/must remember!<br />
  36. 36. Example of Turning Point<br />Let’s say your thesis is “Since Christ has given all for you, you must always be grateful and not forgetful of His grace”, your Turning Point can be any of the following:<br />Insight:The quality of your worship will always depend on your memory chip.<br />Principle:Those who are not forgetful will always be grateful.<br />Application: Don’t forget and you won’t regret.<br />
  37. 37. Doing exposition<br />To come up with your Tagline…<br />Come up with a short phrase or question or word that can trigger familiar images and at the same time help your audience to remember the Turning Point.<br />This Tagline need not be a complete sentence or thought. The important thing is that the audience can be reminded repeatedly because, like the lyrics of a song, it keeps coming back in their minds.<br />Note: Your Tagline is not your message! Your Tagline is just a memory tool. Keep it that way.<br />
  38. 38. Example of Tagline<br />Let’s say your Turning Points are as follows…<br />Insight:The quality of your worship will always depend on your memory chip.<br />Your Tagline can be:Mustana memory mo?<br />Principle:Those who are not forgetful will always be grateful.<br />Your Tagline can be:Maalaala mo kaya?<br />Application: Don’t forget and you won’t regret.<br />Your Tagline can be: Gets mo?<br />
