Expository preaching seems simple enough to defend. By definition, to preach expositionally simply means to “to preach the Bible as originally intended in context.” That seems reasonable. More than that, such a “method” seems to be obviously proper for any man who opens God’s Word and preaches to a congregation. When we, as Bible teachers, read a passage of Scripture…that is, when we take a text…we are at least implying that our topic is completely derived from the passage we just read. And honestly, that is a reasonable expectation from the audience.
