I have my notes from Roanoke Baptist Temple in 1963-1966 on Psalms, Revelation, and Galatians. They were printed by hand. All my notes were hand printed on paper, or what ever I could get my hands on to write on.
I wrote out the sermon as I would want to deliver the message. I had taken short hand in high school, and believed that was dumb at the time. How dumb I was. I did use some short hand.
- (I still have the series) I also was gleaning from John's preaching on Matthew as well. Note photo I scanned)
Matthew was the first series I preached in depth, verse by verse, every verse in every chapter, and sometimes the periods and commas. While every message was from the KJV I would study from as many resources as I had at the time.As I was learning, and following the series of Matthew, I began to use more technical books. Who needed Colin Brown three volumes "Dictionary of NT Theology." Or Georgey Bromiley "Theological Dictionary of the NT." or Merrill C. Tenney's seven volumes"Zondervan Pictorial Encyclopedia of the Bible." Wasn't the KJV's Dickson Study Bible enough?
- Some were saying it's not fundamental and spirit led if you study from those resources. I used Oliver B. Greene, and John R. Rice, and Harry Ironside and others. They were rather good resources for study, and my Seminary notes were good too.
Every message that is pictured above was hand printed, word by word. The picture was taken last week in my home. Charity was nice to let me use the book case to showcase my sermons.
FOOTNOTE: I used the Pilate white fine print pen to print the sermon.
