Learn how to study and preach the Psalms with these courses by Dr. Mark Futato. Dr. Futato begins by painting the big picture of the Psalms—how they’re organized, what their genres and main messages are, and how they point to Christ. You’ll learn how to examine the text piece by piece, using the same interpretive methods Dr. Futato uses in his own research and preparation for preaching. He then demonstrates how to transform what you learn in your study into a well-crafted sermon that is rooted in scholarship and communicated clearly.

CM328 Preaching the Psalms

  • Instructor: Mark D. Futato
  • Video hours: 8

Dr. Futato begins this course by teaching the basic mechanics of Hebrew poetry, such as how imagery and parallelism work and how they help us interpret a Psalm. He shows you how to read Psalms both as a unified book and how to break it down into different categories—like hymn, lament, and thanksgiving—and he explains why both of these approaches are needed.

He then draws from his own experience as a pastor to teach you how to prepare and shape a sermon on a Psalm using your interpretive research. In the last section Dr. Futato brings all the elements of the course together and walks you through how he would study a specific Psalm and craft a sermon, from start to finish.


  • Appreciating the Poetry
  • Viewing the Whole
  • Interpreting the Categories
  • Proclaiming the Psalms
