Bible Exposition Venn Diagram

Bible exposition is a label that seems to be used more than it is understood. Is it a methodology or a result? Or in other words, does one do Bible exposition or does one produce Bible exposition? It is little wonder that Bible exposition means many things to many people.

I would argue that Bible exposition is both a methodology and a result and that as a discipline it is multidisciplinary. It is a methodology in that it is rooted in exegesis, theological method, and homiletics but it is also a result because the end goal is to produce an explanation and application of a text of Scripture. I have tried to communicate a bit of that it this venn diagram produced by my graphic artist daughter, Becky Savelle.
