The public and oral inculcation of the truths of religion, especially of the gospel of Christ, Isaiah 61:1 Acts 8:4 2 Corinthians 5:20 Ephesians 3:8. Public instruction in religion was no doubt given in the earliest ages. Enoch prophesied, Judges 1:14-15; and Noah was a preacher of righteousness, 2 Peter 2:5. Frequent instances of religious addresses occur in the history of Moses, the judges, and the prophets; and these were to some extent in connection with the Jewish ritual, Nehemiah 1:1-11.

The psalms sung in the temple-conveyed instruction to the people. After the captivity, numerous synagogues were erected, in which the word of God was read and expounded from Sabbath to Sabbath. Under the gospel dispensation, the preaching of Christ crucified, by those whom he calls to be his ambassadors, is an established ordinance of prime importance-God’s chief instrumentality for the conversion of the world, Mark 16:15 1 Corinthians 1:21 2 Timothy 2:2 4:2.
