How to Study the Bible (Part 1)
Speaker: Jerry Wragg
Download Sermon

The pattern of Biblical Exposition:

  1. The teacher expounds on the meaning of Scripture.
  2. And, draws out its implications for the listener.
  3. And then, he preaches/exhorts the will to follow Christ.

This formula is extracted from Paul’s writings in 2 Timothy:

  • Read scripture. Understand it as an unashamed workman.
  • Explain scripture in its Biblical context, pulling out the implications for the inner life and conduct of the believer.
  • And, exhort the will to obey by putting off sin patterns and putting on righteous living.
