1 Defining the Task

2 Primary Purpose: Glorify God Objectives Edify Believers Evangelize Sinners Ephesians 4:11-16 Matthew 28:18-20

3 Understanding Our Task: What is Expository Preaching? Hebrew Precedent: Prophecy (Deut. 18: ) (1) to bubble over, to boil to explain or exhort or forewarn because the preacher is compelled by an inner drive over which he has no control. (2)More than foretelling, it s s forth-telling telling thus saith the LORD.

4 Some New Testament Understandings: (1) Kerusso: : most frequent means to proclaim but usually is translated to preach. The idea of a herald who is sent or authorized by someone else to deliver a message. Carries a sense of urgency. (2) Evangelizesthai: : to bring good news. (3) Dialegesthai: : to dialogue or discourse with another person with a view to persuasion. (4) Didaskein: : teach divine truths. (5) Parakalein: : to admonish with a view to moving another person to your point of view. (theological)

5 John Broadus An expository discourse may be defined as one which is occupied mainly with the exposition of Scripture. It may be devoted to a long passage, or a very short one, even a part of a sentence.

6 Preaching is the communication of truth by man to men. It has two essential elements; Phillips Brooks 2 Peter 1: Truth and Personality

7 Charles Haddon Spurgeon Sermons should have real teaching in them, and their doctrine should be solid, substantial, and abundant. We do not enter the pulpit to talk for talk s s sake; we have instructions to convey and we cannot afford to utter petty things

8 Stephen Olford Expository Preaching is the Spirit-empowered explanation and proclamation of the text of God s s Word with due regard to the historical, contextual, grammatical, and doctrinal significance of a given passage, with the specific object of invoking a Christ- transforming response

9 Haddon Robinson Expository Preaching is the communication of a biblical concept, derived from and transmitted through a historical, grammatical, and literary study of a passage in its context, which the Holy Spirit first applies to the personality and experience of the preacher, then through him to his hearers

10 Jim Shaddix The oral communication of biblical truth by the Holy Spirit through a human personality to a given audience with the intent of enabling a positive response

11 Jim Shaddix s Philosophy of Preaching: The Mode: : Oral Communication The Message: : Biblical truth The Medium: : Holy Spirit/Human Personality The Mark: : Given Audience The Motive: : Positive Response

12 Expository Preaching is: The oral proclamation of a properly interpreted passage of Scripture, in the power of the Holy Spirit, by a God- called messenger, to an assembled body, for the accomplishment of God s s purposes

13 A Reasonable Philosophy of Preaching: Preaching is oral proclamation Preaching occurs only when a passage from the Bible has been properly interpreted Preaching occurs in the Power of the Holy Spirit Preaching is carried out by a God-called messenger Preaching takes place before an assembled body Preaching has as its goal the accomplishment of God s s purposes

14 The Heart of Expository Preaching Expository preaching is handling the text in such a way that its real and essential meaning as it existed in the mind of the particular Biblical writer and as it exists in the light of the over-all context of Scripture is made plain and applied to the present-day needs of the hearers

15 Preachers will be refreshed by preaching s essentials. WORD. God's Word is a mighty, life-giving blade. It penetrates to the soul and the heart; it cuts; it heals. And those who preach are to be master swordsmen who correctly handle the Word of Truth. (2 Tim. 2:15) SPIRIT. The mighty sword is to be wielded in the power of the Holy Spirit. We are to seek it. We are to long for it. We are to pray for it so that our preaching is not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit's power. (1 Cor. 2:4) JESUS. Both Word and Spirit are to coalesce in one great task - the exaltation of Jesus Christ: To Exalt Him! HEARERS. But the preacher must have hearers He who has ears, let him hear. (Matt. 13:9) When a church sits under the authority of God's Word preached in the power of the Spirit and lives it out in substantive glory to Christ, the only explanation becomes that God is real. Thus, people with different worldviews can be drawn to the gospel. God's Word, preached in the power of the Holy Spirit, is invasive. There is no heart beyond its hurt; there is no heart beyond its grace.
