Help Me Teach the Bible: Colin Smith on Jonah

September 4, 2015

When we speak the Word of God, then the voice of God is heard. And that’s a wonderful encouragement for anyone who’s a Bible teacher. You speak the Word of God, then when the Word of God is heard, the voice of God is heard.

What an incredible truth! Pastor Colin recently joined Bible teacher Nancy Guthrie to discuss the book of Jonah, which is full of gospel teaching and themes that point to the grace of God for sinners shown in Jesus Christ.


If you’re looking for much more than inspiration when you open your Bible, then The Gospel Coalition’s podcast “Help Me Teach the Bible” is for you. In this series, Nancy Guthrie interviews pastors about various books of the Bible, so that believers might be better equipped to teach the Bible rightly.

This podcast series is an excellent resource for:

  • Parents, who desire to teach the Bible rightly to their kids (of any age group)
  • Sunday School teachers, who want to provide their flock with rich Bible teaching
  • Small group or Bible study leaders, who yearn to shepherd the body of Christ in truth
  • Speakers and teachers, who have the privilege of leading lessons or teaching messages from the Bible
