Practical Pointers on Expository Preaching

From Series: Basics 2010

Acts 8:26-40  (ID: 2740)

Preaching today is often marked by the latest of fads and figures, but unfortunately preaching the whole counsel of the word of God is not entirely in fashion. Too often the preaching of today skips the biblical context and history and rushes straight ahead to application. Echoing the question of Philip to the Ethiopian, “Do you understand what you are reading?” Pastor Alistair Begg says the pastor should be asking of his congregation, “Do you understand what you are hearing?”. Alistair seeks to give the pastor practical foundational principles in preaching the living word of God.


Philip and the Ethiopian Eunuch

26Now an angel of the Lord said to Philip, “Rise and go toward the south4 to the road that goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza.” This is a desert place.
