What is "Text-driven" preaching?

"Text-driven" preaching takes the substance, structure, and spirit of the Text as the sermon, not trying to fit the Text into a sermon. Thus, it is the interpretation and communication of a biblical text in a sermon that re-presents the Substance, Structure, and the Spirit of the text. Here those three facets are in greater detail:

Substance: The substance of the Text is what the Text is talking about.

Structure: The structure of the Text is how the author develops the passage.

Spirit: The spirit of the Text is the author-intended "feel" of the Text.

Pastor Matt utilizes "Text-driven" preaching as he makes his way through books of the Bible verse by verse. You can hear past sermons by clicking here.
