The Heart of Biblical Exposition with David Jackman

With so many definitions and descriptions (and even misconceptions) of exposition floating around, what is the heart of biblical exposition? What does it mean to exposit Scripture faithfully? And why is faithful exposition so important?

As pastors, what are we seeking to accomplish in and through the church as we exposit God’s Word? What is the goal of our preaching?

In seeking to answer these questions, we will explore the following issues:

  • the transformational intent of God’s Word and how to use it to shepherd God’s people
  • the relationship between biblical theology and transformational intent
  • a historical perspective on biblical exposition


An Expositional Mindset and the Church

What does it look like when biblical exposition saturates a church? What difference does it make in the life and ministry of the church? How do we deepen expositional conviction in the minds and ministries of our people? How do we effectively equip God’s people to read, study, and speak God’s Word into one another’s lives and the world?

Together, we will explore the integration of exposition and expositional training into the lives of elders, ministry leaders, marriages, families, and indeed, into the whole of the church and beyond.
