Witherington observed that the exposition of God’s Word has become thin in many circles:
Usually, in such services if any exposition of God’s Word shows up at all, it is a homilette, not even a full homily. Bible lite– less filling, tastes great.
The problem is only exacerbated if only a tiny minority of the church is involved in things like :1) in depth Bible study in groups (not just alone); and 2) in Sunday school classes where there are good teachers
What do you think? Has that been your experience?
One of the motivating forces behind Center for Chinese Church Studies is to make readily available through the internet some practical educational videos to help train ordinary but committed people to study the Scriptures.
