What is the goal of preaching?

What I've tried to say to you this week is that it is important to keep Christ in our Christian messages.

What is the significance of Jerusalem in the Bible?

Watch this. Let me just give you a point of discontinuity right off the bat, that is also continuity at the same time. In the Old Testament Prophets, the goal is all of the time to get into Jerusalem. That is the high water mark of Israelite life: to make Jerusalem the center of everything. So they are in Egypt and then they are in Israel and then they are in Judah and then they are in Jerusalem. So finally, David conquers Jerusalem. Then he has the temple (well, Solomon builds it).
