Unusual advice on preaching (from Luther)

Johann Schlaginhaufen, a boarder in the home of Martin Luther and one of the recorders of “Table Talks,” received the following advice on preaching from Luther in 1531. I’m certain I’ve never read this piece of advice on preaching before:

One who diligently reads the Book of Kings [i.e., 1 & 2 Kings] will become a powerful preacher.

And all the OT professors say, “amen.”

  1. Rats! There goes movie time tonight. Now I have to go read I & II Kings tonight!

  2. Then I guess I guess I should go and read 1 & 2 Kings too.

  3. I just read 1 and 2 Kings so I am looking forward to see what happens.
