“2. Do we preach through books of the Bible in order to show the continuity of God’s Word?

Here’s what I mean.  Preaching through a book, if done properly, can never be done in isolation from the rest of Scripture.  Each biblical book has been informed by and/or connected with other portions of Scripture.  Faithful exposition does biblical theology as the sermon unfolds.  Plus, preaching/teaching consecutively through a book also teaches good hermeneutics, so that those listening learn through that process how to properly interpret God’s Word.  Expositions should model how to study the Word.”
