In 1 Corinthians 14:19 Paul says, “In the church, I would rather speak five words with my mind, in order to instruct others, than ten thousand words in a tongue.” In Galatians, 6:6 he says, “Let him who is taught the word share all good things with him who teaches.” Acts 18:25 says that Apollos “has been instructed in the way of the Lord.”

In each of these verses the Greek word for “instruct” or “teach” is katecheo. From this word we get our English word “catechize”. It simply means to teach Biblical truth in an orderly way. Generally, this is done with questions and answers accompanied by Biblical support and explanation.
