Biblical preaching and teaching that faithfully follows the expositional method requires a total commitment to Biblical inerrancy. The results of expository preaching and teaching are that the people are tuned into the Word of God, not the opinions of mortals. When the Bible speaks through the minister (rather than the minister speaking through the Bible), both the minister and laity are enriched, and empowered by the Spirit of Truth.
This doctoral program in Biblical Exposition is designed to strengthen the minister in the ability to “preach the Word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction” (II Timothy 4:2). The seasoned preacher and the youthful minister alike will find this program Rock-solid (I Corinthians 10:4)!
