Here are a couple of good, basic introductions to expository preaching, if you are unfamiliar with it. Very simply, expository preaching is the authoritative explanation and application of the biblical text within its context.

 

‘The end and intent of the Scripture is to declare that God is benevolent and friendly-minded to mankind; and that he hath declared that kindness in and through Jesu Christ, his only Son; the which kindness is received by faith.”

-from Protestant martyr George Wishart’s (1513-1546) translation of the First Helvetic Confession (1536)

Aunque la luz de la naturaleza y las obras de creación y de providencia manifiestan la bondad, sabiduría, y poder de Dios de tal manera que los hombres quedan sin excusa, (1) sin embargo, no son suficientes para dar aquel conocimiento de Dios y de rock-light-sun-night-sunlight-dark-beam-cave-reflection-darkness-sparkling-reflecting-malaysia-shining-sunbeam-flies-kuala-lumpur-su voluntad que es necesario para la salvación; (2) por lo que le agradó a Dios en varios tiempos y de diversas maneras revelarse a sí mismo y declarar su voluntad a su Iglesia; (3) y además, para conservar y propagar mejor la verdad y para el mayor consuelo y establecimiento de la Iglesia contra la corrupción de la carne, malicia de Satanás y del mundo, le agradó dejar esa revelación por escrito, (4) por todo lo cual las Santas Escrituras son muy necesarias, (5) y tanto más cuanto que han cesado ya los modos anteriores por los cuales Dios reveló su voluntad a su Iglesia. (6).

Confesio de Fe de Westminster 1.1 (1646)

Although the light of nature, and the works of creation and providence do so far manifest the goodness, wisdom, and power of God, as to leave men unexcusable;[1] yet are they not sufficient to give that knowledge of God, and of His will, which is necessary unto salvation.[2] Therefore it pleased the Lord, at sundry [various] times, and in divers manners [different ways]rock-light-sun-night-sunlight-dark-beam-cave-reflection-darkness-sparkling-reflecting-malaysia-shining-sunbeam-flies-kuala-lumpur-, to reveal Himself, and to declare that His will unto His Church;[3] and afterwards for the better preserving and propagating of the truth, and for the more sure establishment and comfort of the Church against the corruption of the flesh, and the malice of Satan and of the world, to commit the same wholly unto writing;[4] which makes the Holy Scripture to be most necessary;[5] those former ways of God’s revealing His will unto His people being now ceased.[6]
