Recently, I’ve had some good conversations about studying Scripture and teaching (including preaching). These conversations have led me to ask some questions of myself concerning study and teaching of Scripture. I thought I would ask you, my readers, the same questions.
If you are studying Scripture in order to teach others, do you study differently than if you are studying for yourself only? If so, then how is your study different when you are planning to teach others, and how is your study different when you are studying for yourself?
Finally, if you study differently when you are planning to teach others, why?
