B21 is excited to host a panel on Gospel-Centered preaching. It will take place during the lunch break of the 9Marks Conference at SEBTS on September 10th in the Ledford’s Multi-Purpose Room. The lineup for the panel is an all-star list of preachers: Danny Akin, Thabiti Anyabwile, Matt Chandler, Mark Dever, and David Platt.
Here are some of the questions that will help guide our conversation:
- Should we preach the Gospel every week in every sermon? Even with many believers present?
- What is Gospel-Centered preaching? How “much” of the gospel needs to be in the sermon?
- Much of the conversation in evangelicalism has centered on the WHY of Gospel-centered preaching, but HOW do we preach the gospel week-in and week-out? How do preach expository sermons through books of the Bible in a Gospel-centered fashion?
- How does the Gospel intersect with daily life? What practical issues does it touch on?
- Some object to Gospel-centered preaching by saying it seeks to find Jesus under every bush in the OT, it’s the same sermon every week, etc. How should we respond to that?
- How would Jesus preach the OT? Should we “go and do likewise” or “not try this at home?”
- The Gospel is about what God has done not what we do, so what is the role of practical application in Gospel-centered preaching?
- What is the role of contextualization in Gospel-centered preaching?
What would you like to ask the panel? What are ways that you can be sharpened in preaching the gospel? We want to hear from you. Submit a Question below.
