The challenge of the preacher/teacher in exposition is to enable a text in the Old Testament and New Testament to make its own point within the whole witness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ; and to affirm that message with persuasion and urgency today in the language of today.
The Seminar in Seattle was held on February 23, 2015 in Upper Gwinn on the campus of Seattle Pacific University.
