About

The Author

I am by God’s grace a disciple of Jesus Christ, the husband of Jessica, the father of Trip, Josie, Rae Ellen, and Vivian. I am also a member of Grace Reformed Baptist Church in Owensboro.  I currently attend Covenant Baptist Theological Seminary. In my spare time, of which there is little, I enjoy reading Christian literature. I also fancy myself a top notch squirrel hunter. In addition, crappie and catfish have been said to faint at the mere mention of my name.

The Blog

Expository Sketches serves as a place for me to systematically and regularly exercise myself in expounding passages of Scripture. As the title suggests, posts are intended to be brief expositions. I aim for less than four hundred words. In addition, I hope to post essays dealing with theology.

I make no claim or even attempt to use this blog to say all that a passage of Scripture can say. It is my prayer that you are in a Bible believing church with a healthy teaching and preaching ministry. No blog is a substitute for regular pulpit ministry.

There are a number of helpful definitions to what an expository sermon is. For that reason, I find it necessary to share the definition I am choosing to work in. Expositing a passage is, “the communication of a biblical concept, derived from and transmitted through a [theological], historical, grammatical, and literary study of a passage in its context, which the Holy Spirit first applies to the personality and experience of the preacher, then through the preacher, applies to the hearers1“. I only add the world theological to Robinson’s definition.
