The Apostle Paul says in 1 Timothy chapter 4, "Command and teach these things. Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity. Until I come, devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to exhortation, to teaching."
Something that has been a strength in Reformed churches is this focus on teaching ‚Äď this focus on the public reading of Scripture, of exhortation ‚Äď and yet, what can happen is that, often, we will focus so much on this that we detach it from the bigger picture of Scripture. Think of how it even relates to God's commission to Abraham in Genesis 12: "The LORD said to Abram, 'Go from your country and your kindred and your father's house to the land that I will show you. And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.'"
Our Faculty on this Round Table podcast are talking about Outreach (part 1 of 3). Paul's instruction to Timothy (1 Tim. 4) is a good one, and yet it is ultimately in service to these very things in the blessing of Abraham, where all the families of the earth shall be blessed.
Using that as a launchpad for our Faculty to join in, you'll hear in speaking order Rev. Mark Vander Hart (Prof of OT Studies), Dr. Alan Strange (Prof. of Apologetics and Church History), Rev. Andrew Compton (Prof. of OT Studies), and Dr. J. Mark Beach, Prof. of Doctrinal Studies).
