Advice for Preaching the Gospels

Steven Mathewson has more good advice about preaching from the Gospels. I have summarized five suggestions that he offers.

1. Read and reread the Gospels.
2. Purchase a couple of the best commentaries of the Gospel you intend to preach.
3. Do some background reading in Second Temple Judaism.
4. Select a couple of narratives and compare them in a synopsis.  
 5. Listen to or read good sermons on the Gospels.

I found Mathewson's book on preaching from Old Testament Narrative to be instructive and helpful.
