What is expository preaching?
At its simplest, it is a commitment to preach the text.
Early in my walk, a mentor of mine defined preaching for me from the book of Nehemiah, chapter 8. "They read from the book, from the Law of God, clearly, and they gave the sense, so that the people understood the reading." (Nehemiah 8:8) Ezra read from the word of God and then they explained it so that the people could understand. This is preaching.
Alistair Begg defines expository preaching as, "Unfolding the text of Scripture in such a way that it makes contact with the listener's world while exalting Christ and confronting them with the need for action."
If you are hearing something other than this, you're not hearing preaching.
At The Way, we systematically preach, verse-by-verse for the most part, through books of the Bible. Our current series is entitled Foundations, as we explore the foundations of our faith in the book of Genesis. We spent the better part of a year preaching through the Sermon on the Mount. 1 John, Ezra, and Jude are some of our other recent series.
We want you to hear what God has to say, not so much what we might have to say.
