Teaching the Bible well is more than merely getting the text right. We also need to get it across. In no aspect of preaching is this more important than in application. You must apply your message so that hearts are changed, not just minds.

2The Place and Proportion of ApplicationBryan Chapell
The Gospels are the heart of the Bible. They declare that the center of human history is found in God's act of sending His only Son. And this message must be proclaimed, from the first days of the church (captured in Acts) to now. Yet, these five books are also complex, drawing together discourse and narrative, history and prophecy and apocalyptic, theology and ethics.
