People sometimes characterize a meticulous preacher as a better teacher than a preacher. While different people will mean different things in describing someone as a preacher or teacher, many people today in general think of preaching as speaking forcefully, pounding on the pulpit, speaking loudly, demanding a "amen", having a prepared command of scripture, making application and using illustrations, and then exhorting people to follow biblical concepts.
By teaching, many people think teaching is presenting a passage of scripture, commenting upon it, and making explanations to make the meaning of the biblical passage clear. And of course, some overlapping of preaching and teaching is normally accredited.
