Homiletic means relating to preaching, the art of preaching, the branch of practical theology.

11 The angel of the Lord came and sat down under the oak in Ophrah that belonged to Joash the Abiezrite, where his son Gideon was threshing wheat in a winepress to keep it from the Midianites. 12 When the angel of the Lord appeared to Gideon, he said, “The Lord is with you, mighty warrior.” 13 “Pardon me, my lord,” Gideon replied, “but if the Lord is with us, why has all this happened to us? Where are all his wonders that our ancestors told us about when they said, ‘Did not the Lord bring us up out of Egypt?’ But now the Lord has abandoned us and given us into the hand of Midian.” 14 The Lord turned to him and said, “Go in the strength you have and save Israel out of Midian’s hand. Am I not sending you?

  1. What is the thesis (big idea) of the sermon?
  2. What do I want the sermon to accomplish in the hearers?

Fred Craddock says as it relates to The Theological Context:

“Preaching both proclaims an event and participates in that event, both reports on revelation and participates in that revelation, bringing it home to listeners not only in honest reporting but with the immediacy of a living voice addressed to these gathered here and now.” (Page 47)

“The second statement about the revelation of theology to preaching can be expressed as a matter of size: theology prompts preaching to treat subjects of importance an*-9d trivia.” (Page 4)

  1. Preach God’s Activity
  2. Preach God’s Self-Disclosed Providence (the not so obvious) (invisible nature)

We do not always know what God is doing!

Henry Ward Beecher said, “He that does not know how wisely to meddle with public affairs in preaching the gospel, does not know how to preach the gospel.”
