“Alle kaarte op die preek?”

Johan Cilliers

Abstract


In hierdie artikel word kortliks gelet op drie grondlyne van die
Reformasie, naamlik die vertroosting van die beangste mens tydens die laat Middeleeue, die
hunkering na vryheid en die behoefte aan fundamentele verandering. Dit word opgevolg met ’n
uiteensetting van die sakramentele verstaan van die reformatoriese prediking, en die
bevraagtekening hiervan in die huidige tydvak. Aan die hand van ’n sakramenteel-profetiese
perspektief op die prediking, word drie homiletiese kontoere vir prediking in ons tyd getrek,
naamlik sakramenteel-profetiese prediking as bevestiging, onderbreking en pro-formasie. Ten
slotte word enkele suggesties gemaak oor die vraag of ons (nog) “alle kaarte op die preek” kan
of moet plaas.
“All cards on the sermon?”

This article briefly discusses three key notions of the Reformation, namely the comforting of
anxious people during the late Middle Ages, the longing for freedom, and the need for
fundamental transformation. This is followed by an exposition of the sacramental understanding
of preaching within the Reformation, and the contemporary critique thereof. By means of a
sacramental-prophetical perspective on preaching, three homiletical contours are drawn for
preaching in our times, namely affirmation, interruption, and pro-formation. The article is
concluded with some suggestions on the question whether we should or could still place such a
decisive emphasis on preaching.
