The apostles’teaching formed the basis of the instruction given to the first Christians. Parts of the NT draw a distinction between preaching and teaching, seeing the former as a means of converting individuals, and the latter as a means of instructing them after conversion.
The importance of teaching
Ecc 12:11-12 “goads” prod the sluggish to action, while “embedded nails” furnish a kind of mental anchorage. “Shepherd” is almost certainly a reference to God himself. See also Pr 1:8-9; Pr 3:1-2; Pr 4:1-4; Pr 6:20-23; Mt 5:19; 1Co 14:6; 2Ti 4:2-3
