What Is Biblical Exposition & Why Is It So Important?

God’s Word has the power to save lost souls and sanctify the hearts of Christians. We don’t want to read our thoughts into it, we want to get God’s thoughts out. Faithful expository preaching (biblical exposition) will drive the listener to the Gospel every time.

Consider the words of Tozer,

Sound Bible exposition is an imperative must in the Church of the Living God. Without it no church can be a New Testament church in any strict meaning of that term. But exposition may be carried on in such way as to leave the hearers devoid of any true spiritual nourishment whatever. For it is not mere words that nourish the soul, but God Himself, and unless and until the hearers find God in personal experience they are not the better for having heard the truth.

2 Goals of Biblical Exposition

  1. Communicate the passage faithfully and accurately to your listeners.
  2. Equip the listener to interpret and study the Bible faithfully on their own.

This is why Snowbird is committed to expository Bible teaching and ministry. It is vital that every preacher and teacher handles the Word of God with accuracy. We must communicate God’s original message and meaning from the text, and teach it in a way that is understandable by your people.

Nobody ever outgrows Scripture; the book widens and deepens with our years.

Charles Spurgeon
