Abstract

Jesus is the greatest preacher the world has ever known. Yet we have only two of His sermons recorded in full: the Sermon on the Mount (Matt. 5-7), and the Sermon on the Mount of Olives (Matt. 24,25). It could be argued that the Olives sermon really doesn't count as one because Jesus' congregation was limited to His disciples. There are, of course, other speeches or talks that Jesus gave: long ones like John 14-17, but these were given on a more personal level; and short ones that probably came from sermons, but we don't have the full text. However, we have enough of the con tent and style of Jesus' preaching so that we can learn much from Him. Here are eight great principles that define Jesus as the great preacher that He was.
