The Core of Expository Preaching

From Series: Basics 2017

Nehemiah 8:1-18  (ID: gs1251)

At its core, expository preaching follows a simple pattern: read the Word of God then explain the text to those listening, as Ezra and his colleagues did in Nehemiah 8. In this message, Dr. Albert Mohler explains how the secularized culture around us has made expository preaching vitally important today. When pastors read the Bible and explain the text, they convey information that is not heard elsewhere—revealed truth in a society that opposes revelation. By following this biblical pattern, ministers rely on the Holy Spirit to bring souls to Christ and the Lord Jesus gets all the glory


Ezra Reads the Law

1And all the people gathered as one man into the square before the Water Gate. And they told Ezra the scribe to bring the Book of the Law of Moses that the Lord had commanded Israel.
