Thinking About the Context of a Message

Minilesson Video

Every message fits in somewhere. Something came before it, and something will come after it. In fact, messages are meant to change the world in some way. Watch this video to learn about the context of any message.

It could be Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech. Choose a message and answer the questions below to think about its context.

  1. When and where was this message originally received?
  2. What happened just before this message was received?
  3. What happened after the message was received?
  4. When and where did you first receive this message?
  5. How different were things when you received it than when it was originally received?
  6. How did this message affect the world then and now?
