  • The power of the tongue The power of the tongue Why are we having this workshop?
  • Our people need spiritual ‘meat’
  • People rely heavily on the sermon
  • We don’t have enough preachers
  • We can’t plant more churches or encourage the churches unless we have more preachers
  • We can’t assume that we have arrived in our preaching
  • Research Point of View The focal point of most worship services is the sermon… Highly effective churches have pioneered ways of maximizing the impact of the sermon… Research Point of View The first lesson from the highly effective churches is that people have to be taught how to hear truth. The first step in this process is often challenging people’s views of Scripture… Dr. George Barna Habits of Highly Effective Churches

  • Biblical example: The Levites...instructed the people in the Law while the people were standing there. They read from the Book of the Law of God, making it clear and givingthemeaning so that the people could understand what was being read. - Neh 8:7-8 Biblical example: Then all the people went away to eat and drink, to send portions of food and to celebrate with great joy, because they now understood the words that had been made known to them. - Neh 8:7-8 Our responsibility:
  • Like the Levites, we are called upon to give ‘exposition’ of Scripture, in order that people may understand the meaning of the text.
  • What is ‘exposition’? Exposition is …doing explanation in a sermon… revealing information drawn from the background material and exegetical study – Al Fasol Expository preaching vs conventional preaching Compared to conventional preaching, expository preaching gives more emphasis to the Biblical context. A bad (ICOC) example: Hab 1:5 says: "Look at the nations and watch-- and be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told. A bad (ICOC) example: Hab 1:5-6 says: "Look at the nations and watch-- and be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told. I am raising up the Babylonians, that ruthless and impetuous people, who sweep across the whole earth to seize dwelling places not their own.

  • For (you) the preacher:
  • It keeps you sharp on the Bible
  • It gives you greater confidence in using the Bible as the true authority
  • It makes sermon preparation more interesting
  • It gives more emphasis on the Bible than the preacher
  • You can teach more with less verses; sermons become shorter but “meatier”
  • Advantages of Expository Preaching
  • For the audience:
  • It makes the sermon more interesting
  • It increases appreciation for God’s word & encourages people to study the Bible
  • It disarms the audience; less feel of coercion
  • It equips people with solid principles that they can apply when they are alone
  • It creates an atmosphere of deeper study & multiplies preachers
  • Vocabulary to learn:
  • Exegesis = drawing meaning ‘out of the text,’ focusing on original intent; opposite of eisegesis = putting meaning ‘into the text’
  • Hermeneutics = giving contemporary relevance to a text
  • Expository sermon = explanatory result of exegetical study
  • An exercise in reading… Suppose you were walking in the park and you found this letter… Friday morning Dear Tito Caloy, I’m sorry for not writing back right away. I was caught up in school and I had to do some things for Sam. Thank you for the stuff you gave, and I will give some to Baby. Anyway, I’m sure you will do what you promised so that I can go there. Be assured that I will work on the problems, even though there are a lot…daghan caayo! Btw, Peter won his game last month. He’s into the finals. Regards to Tita. See you next month! Love, Bim-bim To keep in mind:
  • The goal of exegesis is to find out what the original author intended.
  • A text cannot mean what it never meant.
  • Do not begin with the ‘here and now,’ but with the ‘there and then.’
  • Focus on the original meaning To interpret and apply his text in accordance with its real meaning is one of the preacher’s most sacred duties. – John Broadus Elements of Expository Preaching
  • “The Central Idea of Text” (CIT) is a simple declarative sentence, written in the past tense, which says what the text meant back then.
  • Elements of Expository Preaching
  • “The Main Objective of the Text” (MOT) is a broad description of the primary purpose or intent of the text.
  • Elements of Expository Preaching
  • “The Main Objective of the Sermon” (MOS) is a statement of what the preacher hopes to accomplish with this one message, for this group. The MOS should go hand in hand with the MOT.
  • Key concept or principle General Relevance for today Context of the passage Specific Application Content of the passage Sermon Text Biblical Text The hermeneutic pathway Text  Sermon: An awesome task!

  • Why is this in the Bible?
  • How is this translated in other versions?
  • Practice writing the CIT and MOT
  • Keep a Bible dictionary handy
  • COFFEE BREAK EXERCISES:Practicing what we’ve learned. SATAN QUOTES SCRIPTURE Luke 4:10-11 For it is written: He will give His angels orders concerning you, to protect you, and they will support you with their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone." HOLMAN CHRISTIAN STANDARD BIBLE Satan quotation from Psalm 91 is accurate. But he MISREPRESENTS THE AUTHOR’S INTENT WHERE THERE IS NO VISION… Proverbs 29:18 Where there is no vision, the people perish Habakuk 2:2 …Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. KING JAMES VERSION Proverbs 29:18 Where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint; but blessed is he who keeps the law. Habukuk 2:2 Write down the revelation and make it plain on tablets so that a herald may run with it. NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION FILTHY RAGS? Isaiah 64:6 "All of us have become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags...“ NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION Isaiah 64:5-6 NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION 5 You come to the help of those who gladly do right, who remember your ways. But when we continued to sin against them, you were angry. How then can we be saved? 6 All of us have become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags; we all shrivel up like a leaf, and like the wind our sins sweep us away. Isaiah 64:5-6 ENGLISH STANDARD VERSION 5 You meet him who joyfully works righteousness, those who remember you in your ways. Behold, you were angry, and we sinned; in our sins we have been a long time, and shall we be saved? 6 We have all become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous deeds are like a polluted garment. We all fade like a leaf, and our iniquities, like the wind, take us away. FORCEFULNESS? Matthew 11:12 From the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven has been forcefully advancing, and forceful men lay hold of it. NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION GOOD NEWS BIBLE Matthew 11:12 From the time John preached his message until this very day the Kingdom of heaven has suffered violent attacks, and violent men try to seize it. CONTEMPORARY ENGLISH VERSION Matthew 11:12 From the time of John the Baptist until now, violent people have been trying to take over the kingdom of heaven by force. NEW AMERICAN STANDARD BIBLE Matthew 11:12 From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and violent men take it by force. JERUSALEM BIBLE Matthew 11:12 Since John the Baptist came, up to this present time, the kingdom of heaven has been subjected to violence and the violent are taking it by storm. KING JAMES VERSION Matthew 11:12 And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force. TODAYS NIV (TNIV) Matthew 11:12 From the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven has been subjected to violence, and violent people have been raiding it. THE PARABLE OF THE TALENTS Matthew 25:14-15 Again, it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants and entrusted his property to them. To one he gave five talents of money, to another two talents, and to another one talent, each according to his ability. I CAN DO ALL THINGS? Philippians 4:13 HCSB I am able to do all things through Him who strengthens me. I CAN DO ALL THINGS? Philippians 4:12-13 I know both how to have a little, and I know how to have a lot. In any and all circumstances I have learned the secret of being content--whether well-fed or hungry, whether in abundance or in need. I am able to do all things through Him who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13— Out of context, “I can do everything through him who gives me strength,” has been widely abused by Christians who felt it was a mandate to do things to which they had not been called and for which they had not been gifted. In context, of course, it refers simply to being content and coping in any and every socio-economic context. This is now clarified in TNIV with “I can do all this.” Craig Blomberg Distinguished Professor of New Testament, Denver Seminary GOD WILL GIVE ME THE DESIRES OF MY HEART? Psalm 37:4 Delight yourself in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart. "SHARING YOUR FAITH" Philemon 6 I pray that you may be active in sharing your faith, so that you will have a full understanding of every good thing we have in Christ. NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION Philemon 5-7 New International Version 5 I hear about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints. 6 I pray that you may be active in sharing your faith, so that you will have a full understanding of every good thing we have in Christ. 7 Your love has given me great joy and encouragement, because you, brother, have refreshed the hearts of the saints. Philemon 5-7 New American Standard 5 … I hear of your love and of the faith which you have toward the Lord Jesus and toward all the saints; 6 and I pray that the fellowship of your faith may become effective through the knowledge of every good thing which is in you for Christ's sake. 7 For I have come to have much joy and comfort in your love, because the hearts of the saints have been refreshed through you, brother. Philemon 5-7 Holman Christian Standard 5… I hear of your love and faith toward the Lord Jesus and for all the saints. 6 I pray that your participation in the faith may become effective through knowing every good thing that is in us for the glory of Christ. 7 For I have great joy and encouragement from your love, because the hearts of the saints have been refreshed through you, brother. Philemon 5-7 New Living Translation 5 …I keep hearing of your trust in the Lord Jesus and your love for all of God's people. 6 You are generous because of your faith. And I am praying that you will really put your generosity to work, for in so doing you will come to an understanding of all the good things we can do for Christ. 7 I myself have gained much joy and comfort from your love, my brother, becauseyour kindness has so often refreshed the hearts of God's people. On Philemon 6— Here is one of the most important changes of all. The NIV led many zealous evangelists astray with its translation, “I pray that you may be active in sharing your faith, so that you will have a full understanding of every good thing we have in Christ.” The little letter to Philemon is not about evangelism at all, but entirely about Paul's hope that Philemon will welcome Onesimus back home in keeping with his reputation for hospitality. Thus the TNIV's, “I pray that your partnership with us in the faith may be effective in deepening your understanding of every good thing we share for the sake of Christ” is far better. -Craig Blomberg FISHERS OF MEN Mark 1:17 And Jesus said to them, "Follow Me, and I will make you become fishers of men."
