What is my favorite Bible book to teach? I have always enjoyed studying and teaching Hebrews. It has so many pertinent concepts that need reinforced continually–Christianity is superior to Judaism, there has always been a pattern for God’s people to follow, the lessons of the Old Testament are relevant for us today, the old covenant has been replaced by a new covenant, this new covenant is special in that it is a testament of Jesus Christ, and others points that the world need to hear proclaimed. I was blessed to have Clyde Woods (AKA Doc Woods) for this class at Freed-Hardeman University. I never tire of studying from this epistle.

… the gospel of Luke. These gospel accounts are two of my favorites to teach. Hard to choose, as Don said, and I don’t begrudge the complaint.
Luke is the gospel of the down and out. The gospel of repentance. The Good News for individuals. The gospel of joy and the Holy Spirit. (Those two go together.) The blessed story of the Ideal Man who knows the right word, the best action, the perfect touch.
Right now, however, I’m concentrating my energies on 1 Corinthians and Hebrews, with only a couple of weeks to prepare, as I step into an almost emergency situation in a preacher training school, to pick up these two courses that got left without a teacher. Prayers are needed for this prep. Desperately. I need all the help I can on such short notice. I pray I’ll not leave the students wanting.
Assuming that most of our Fellows are teachers, the Nudge asks, what Bible book is your favorite to teach?
I just mentioned to John that I’m in a whirl preparing to teach two courses on Bible books in a preacher training school at the end of the month, for an entire week. I had about three weeks notice — it was something of an emergency when their teacher fell through. So November’s going to be a blur for me. So the Nudge comes from that blurry vision.
Thanks, John, for sharing the news about this great brother in the Kingdom. May God give him rest and peace and great reward, and to his family comfort and joy in his life and work.
