dc.description.abstract Investigates some of the essential foundations that Scripture supplies for the preacher as communicator; determines whether certain positive insights can be gained by investigating a two-way communication model; and illustrates the value of the results of this study for the preacher as communicator in preparing and delivering a sermon. The results of this study show that, in the Old Testament, God communicated with His people through language, and He appointed and used specially elected persons for this purpose. The prophets in the Old Testament played the role of communicator, and preachers today still apply and communicate the inspired words of the prophets. The communication of the prophets may give guidelines for the way in which preachers can communicate the Word of God today. In the New Testament, Jesus called messengers to proclaim the message of salvation and reconciliation with God. These messengers fulfilled the role of preacher as communicator. The Holy Spirit is the subject of communication and the inspired Scripture is the source of communication. A two-way communication model has been found to be the most suitable form of the various communication models generally applied in communicative preaching. The preacher as communicator must reveal himself to the congregation to such an extent that his audience can identify with him. Prayer is essential for the preacher as communicator to prepare and deliver the sermon. The preacher as communicator should rely on the Holy Spirit and be filled with the Holy Spirit. Only God Himself inspires and enlightens the preacher in preparing and delivering his sermon. en
