What’s the difference between teaching and preaching?


A very clear cut quote by Michael Fabarez in his Preaching that Changes Lives:

“Some have categorized teaching as preaching to Christians, and preaching as gospel preaching to non-Christians.  Others label teaching a non-emotional lecture that speaks to the mind, and preaching as a polished and passionate proclamation that speaks to the heart.  Though there may be stylistic distinctions between modern evangelistic preaching, Sunday school lectures, and the pastor’s sermon, the biblical differences are inconsequential. The words kerysso, euangelizo, kataangello, anangello and didasko, along with a host of other New Testament words, all add to our understanding of the powerful, authoritative, and life-changing oration the preacher is called to deliver to God’s people.”
