The purpose of this course is to provide an overview of the history, purpose, and mechanics of expository preaching and teaching. This will involve a survey of the process of preparing and delivering a biblical presentation or sermon. Particular attention will be given to the understanding and interpretation of passages to be preached or taught in context, biblically, doctrinally, practically, and experientially.
