Dr. Luke and Linguistic Style of Learning


Proverbs 22:6 (NIV) - "Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it."

We spoke of eight Learning styles or multiple intelligences yesterday. We can find them displayed in the Scriptures. We will start with the Linguistic style of learning - and our "Poster-child" will be Dr. Luke.

The Linguistic style has its strength in the area of Language Arts. This type of learner thinks in words. They love reading (sound like someone you know), writing, and telling stories. Typically a person with this style of learning will end up being a writer or a speaker of some sort.

In the Scriptures we find a prime example in Dr. Luke the writer/historian. Consider his own words in Luke 1: 1 - 4 - "Many have undertaken to draw up an account of the things that have been fulfilled among us, just as they were handed down to us by those who from the first were eyewitnesses and servants of the word. Therefore, since I myself have carefully investigated everything from the beginning, it seemed good also to me to write an orderly account for you, most excellent Theophilus, so that you may know the certainty of the things you have been taught."

Jesus applied this mode of teaching by telling many parables and stories.

You may have students that learn in this form. God has wired us each differently, apply their style to achieve their maximum response.

For Kingdom education,
