Consider the challenge of reading the
Bible:
Start with ten people, to represent all the
people in the world.
Think of these ten people :
Of these ten, three are illiterate. They
cannot read or write.
Start with ten people. Three are
illiterate.
Two others only went to school for three or
four years.
Start with ten people. Three are
illiterate. Two went to school for a short
time.
Three others completed high school, but
they rarely read after they finished school.
So how many are now
reading the Bible?
Nearly two-thirds of the
world’s people are oral
learners.
They prefer to hear a story
rather than read a book.
But there is still another
challenge.
3. Read this.
Carilah sebuah kisah peribadi yang ada
kaitan dengan hidup anda, atau baca
beberapa kisah benar tentang mereka
yang mengalami perubahan radikal kerana
suatu pertemuan dengan Tuhan.
‫هل يوجد أحد يفهم ما أنت عليه اآلن؟ ستجد هنا قصة‬
‫ أو تقرأ بعض القصص الحقيقية ألناس‬،‫شخص ترتبط معه‬
‫تغيرت حياتهم تغييراً جذريا ً بعد معرفتهم هللا معرفة حقيقة‬
About this last challenge:
Many people do not have the option of
reading the Bible in their native language.
There are about 6900 languages in the
world today. At least 2000 of these
languages still need a translation of the
Bible so that people can read the Bible in
their heart language.

time to learn new things.
How does Matthew 28:18-20 apply
to oral learners?
Then Jesus came to them and said, "All
authority in heaven and on earth has been given
to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all
nations, baptizing them in the name of the
Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and
teaching them to obey everything I have
commanded you. And surely I am with you
always, to the very end of the age."

Storying
One approach to teaching oral learners
(and the rest of us as well) is to teach by
storying.
– Can you give a summary of last week’s
sermon?
– Can you repeat a story that you learned as a
child?
