Meet the Early-day Saints Episode 2: Preaching, with Kristian Heal
“Preaching punctuated the religious experience of early Christians.”
Ancient Christians didn’t “give talks,” they didn’t have monthly “fast and testimony meetings.” But Dr. Kristian S. Heal says the preaching of sermons about the gospel of Jesus Christ was a central part of early Christian experience. We discuss his chapter “Preaching Christ: Scripture, Sermons, and Practical Exegesis,” from the book Ancient Christians: An Introduction for Latter-day Saints.
