Expository Preaching Resources
Expository preaching is the explanation of a biblical passage in its context that forms a complete unit of thought shaped by the intent of the original author and the structure of the passage which the Holy Spirit applies to the preacher and through the personality of the preacher makes the message relevant to people today (adapted from Haddon Robinson, Biblical Preaching: The Development and Delivery of Expository Messages, Baker Academic, 2001, p.20).
Expository preaching ought to be the primary focus of the preaching ministry in the church. Why? Expository preaching allows the Word of God to speak for itself with a minimal amount of human interference. It exposes the text. In other words, it is the method that balances the exegetical with the practical seeking to understand the text as the author intended it to be understood and apply the text as the listeners need it applied. Expository preaching points people to trust in the authority of the Bible not the genius of the preacher. Expository preaching helps people understand the Bible and models for people how to study the Bible and apply it to our daily lives.
 
There are five key characteristics of an expository sermon.
  1. The central idea of the passage as it stands in its context is the central idea of the sermon.
  2. The sermon focuses the message on meeting the needs of the people.
  3. The structure of the passage determines the organization of the sermon.
  4. The sermon explains the Scriptures as a coherent and coordinated body of the truth.
  5. The passage is applied first to the preacher and then to the listeners.

Colossians 1:28-29
We proclaim Him (Christ), admonishing every man and teaching every man with
all wisdom,
so that we may present every man complete in Christ.
For this purpose also I labor, striving according to His power, which mightily works within me.
(New American Standard Bible, 1995 by The Lockman Foundation)
