According to Haddon W. Robinson, Biblical Preaching is synonymous with expository preaching.

In the early chapters of Biblical Preaching, Haddon W. Robinson build a strong case for expository preaching.

As Haddon W. Robinson states in Biblical Preaching, expository preaching is the communication of the biblical concept, derived from and transmitted through a 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 hearers.

In other words, biblical preaching is communicating the Word of God to your hearers. The emphasis is on the communication of God's word.

Biblical Preaching / Expository Preaching

Haddon W. Robinson uses the big idea as the means to communicate the Word of God to his hearers. The big idea is the single theme of the text or passage of Scripture. Some commentators call this the topic of the sermon or the main preaching point of the sermon. Bryan Chapell seems to refer to this as the Fallen Condition Focus.

Once you grasp the big idea concept, you will find structuring a sermon easier.

Haddon W. Robinson points out ten (10) steps in sermon preparation.
