I once was listening to a pastor about his sermon prep process. He described that he’d put together his sermon and its points and then find the verses to support. He described it all matter-of-fact as if that was the way he was semi-formally trained and is the way that it’s supposed to be done. I didn’t really ask or say anything. I just listened because it sounded so interesting. I also silently wondered what the word “exegesis” meant–if anything–to him.
