There are a lot!

I am currently working on identifying every speech in the Bible.

“And how do you define a speech, exactly?” Good question. Here is my criteria:

  • It must be spoken before an audience (or written with that intention); e.g. not a song without an identified audience
  • Spoken from man to man; not a prayer, nor from God, nor a prophet saying “Thus says the Lord”
  • Formal, self-contained, structured (not merely a conversation)
  • Not an epistle
  • Three or more sentences in length.

I will let you know when I am done.
