Bruner, Gregory, and Jesus

From: Volume V, Issue 1: Fall 1984 Pages 53-56


This article examines the validity of Jerome S. Bruner's hypothesis about the communication of knowledge to the learner through the vehicles of its representation--iconic, concrete, and symbolic. Perforce it is concluded that these three modes or "structures" may be employed as a legitimate means of instruction for the Christian teacher; in that, not only were they anticipated by John Milton Gregory, a 19th century Christian educator, but they also were confirmed by the methodology of the Lord Jesus Christ.
