By Camilla Devreut Subscribe to RSS | February 20th 2012 | Views:

Sermons are a wonderful way to educate, motivate, and encourage people on their journey in life. Plenty of sermons have been delivered that have helped multitudes to grow personally and spiritually. Whether you are delivering a series on biblical ways to take control of your emotions or delving into the meat of the Old Testament and its history, sermons are certainly necessary for lectures or corporate gatherings.

Along with sermons, using original, high quality biblical illustrations can enhance and bring alive the effect of sermons. Many people gain so much more from seeing something visual in addition to hearing a sermon. With the use of innovative media and technology today, beautiful and rich illustrations can be created to help sermons and lectures come alive and meaningful.

This is especially helpful when the topics of Christian sermons are historical and focus on ancient biblical times. Trying to teach listeners biblical history and archaeology without colorful bible illustrations can be quite boring. Why not add some high quality archaeological reconstructions of biblical sites in Israel and beyond to pique the interest of listeners?

There are unique free bible illustrations available for a wide array of Bible themes from the New Testament and Old Testament that can be used in lectures, Sunday school, sermons, Bible College, homeschool, and so on. Christian sermon illustrations can be presented on a projector through PowerPoint or printed out and given as a handout.

You can recreate biblical history and bible stories with exciting and colorful bible illustrations easily and effectively. For example, if you would like to teach a series on the history of Mesopotamia and other biblical lands such as Babylon and Sumer, you can find beautiful illustrations and posters that will bring the topic to life and be represented well for your students. Additionally, you can find accurate depictions such as the Tower of Babel, the Ark of the Covenant, the Temple, and more.

Research has reported that people remember and comprehend better when information is presented both verbally and visually. When trying to teach history in particular, using biblical illustrations allows students to picture themselves back in the context of ancient times. It helps them to see how different the culture was back then and appreciate more fully the relevant lesson being taught. It’s one thing to talk about the Ark of the Covenant, but another thing to see patriarchal men carrying it in brilliant color with its intricate details.

There are many biblical illustrations available to choose from to enhance your sermons. One such website that offers high quality illustrations is Archaeology Illustrated. Much research is conducted for every image by using academic and scholarly publications so that the illustrations are completely accurate.

If you have not been using high quality biblical illustrations to enhance your sermons, give it a try and you will be happy to hear the positive comments that come from your students. You will also be happy to know that through the illustrations, your students will remember more clearly your teachings.
