Transcript of Seven Types of Sermons
Results: First of all we become better people ourselves and more knowledgeable of the Bible, as well as grow in the word, and expand our knowledge!
Seven Types of Sermons:
- Focuses on Scripture/Text.
We will be able to effectively share God's word, so that the Holy Spirit works within us and brings change to the ones surrounding us.
By: Peter Sushch
Based on: "A SIMPLE GUIDE TO PREACHING," by Gerald Rowlands.
- We bring out/expose the truth that may be hidden beneath the words on a page.
- A biography is a life story of a person.
This type of sermon relates to the detailed analyzing of a subject in order to extract the greatest amount of Truth from it. From this Truth, you can then teach the underlying principles involved.
- The analogical sermon endeavors to communicate truth contained in an analogy.
- This is the art of uncovering truth that is concealed within a type of person.
- Short portion of scripture.
a) Choose appropriate statement of Scripture.
b) Investigate it.
c) Analyze it.
d) Discover all the truth it contains.
a) Discover all that the Bible has to say on that topic.
b) Find Scripture references and arrange them in order.
c) You may not be able to cover the whole topic in one sermon, so divide it into a few.

PRINCIPLES FOR USE: When you first attempt to teach from biblical types, please try to keep the following principles in mind:
a) Use simpler types. Begin with the simpler types, in which the implication is very obvious.
b) Keep to broader interpretation. Never try to interpret every tiny detail of the type. Keep to the broader outline of Truth.
c) Don't be dogmatic. Avoid being dogmatic as to what the type teaches.
d) Illustrate Doctrine. Never base your Doctrinal position on the teaching of types. Types should illustrate doctrine, not initiate it.
e) Be open to correction. Remain open to correction from those of greater maturity than yourself.
- Excellent way to preach to a multitude.
a) You may take a book of the Bible and explain the meaning of it chapter by chapter. And maybe one chapter a week, and go in depth verse by verse, revealing truth.
b) Make multiple Bible studies to go over and cover a lot of material, and soon people will be familiar with every book.
_ We study the lives of the characters of the Bible, to pull lessons and hidden truths, for our own benefit. We can learn from anyone's life, and from the mistakes they make.
a) Choose a particular person/character.
b) Read every reference to that person that occurs in the Bible.
c) Make notes of every thought that comes to mind.
- Study the birth of the person.
- Consider the circumstances of his upbringing.
- Focus upon the dealings of God in his life.
- How did he react to God's dealing?
- What did he learn from it?
- If he were a success in life, what made him successful?
- If his life ended in failure, where did he go wrong?
- What can we learn from his life?
- Discover and present a specific topic.
The Bible has many many analogies. They were popular in Hebrew Literature.
When you are reading the Bible, is is always good to be very analytical, because it can lead us to deeper truths. But it is important to know that analytical is not the same as skeptical.
Foundation: God, spending time with God in Prayer and Scripture.

of poems I published, which I pray
will be a great resource to help
you reflect on your life, ministry
and your walk with God.
