Leader who cannot communicate clearly, powerfully, and succinctly barely qualifies as a leader. The best ideas are useless if not communicated in a compelling way.
The leaders of the Bible did not have e-mail, fax machines, telephones, or even microphones. The printing press did not exist during the times of either the Old or New Testaments, forcing them to rely on handwritten scrolls that also had to be duplicated by hand. Perhaps because they lacked sophisticated technologies to lean on, they became masters of the written and spoken word, taking great care to ensure that their messages were communicated accurately from time to time and place to place. Consider the following examples of communication described in the Bible:

❖ The Sermon on the Mount
❖ The protests of the prophets against idol-worship and the corruption of their own rulers and foreign rulers
❖ Moses’ exhortations to the Israel it leashed the mount of Egypt and through the desert
❖ The delivery of the Ten Commandments


❖ 山上の垂訓
❖ 神像崇拝、彼らの支配者たちや管轄外支配者たちの汚職に対する預言者の意義
❖ イスラエルへのモーゼの奨励は、砂漠を通してエジプトの山を鎖で結んだ
❖ 十戒の引き渡し
