Adventist churches in Korea urgently need expository preaching to act as a counterbalance to the strong traditional emphasis on topical preaching. The greatest problem of preaching in Adventist churches of Korea seems to be a lack of biblical content. Complicating this is a widespread failure to correctly apply hermeneutical principles to biblical exposition.
Two taped sermons preached by each of seven selected Seventh-day Adventist preachers in Korea were collected and analyzed in the light of the criteria established for authenthic expository preaching. The criteria were obtained from the review of biblical and current literature.
It was found that of the fourteen sermons twelve sermons were not expository. Thus, it turns out that the solid understanding of how to make an expository sermon is greatly needed.
It is imperative that pastors and lay leaders receive adequate training in a continuing education program for expository preaching. Furthermore, the theology students of Sahmyook University, the future Adventist preachers of Korea, should learn how to research and construct a good expository sermon. Therefore, a model for a course in expository preaching is presented in this dissertation.
