Expository teaching is a method of explanation that can raise the biblical understanding in the minds of those receiving the teaching. This paper studies a group of participants from Stonepath Church who receive three expository teaching lessons on three biblical passages on worship. The initial understanding of biblical worship is gauged by the scores of the participants on a worship survey taken before the first lesson, and the increase in biblical knowledge is gauged by the scores of the participants on the same worship survey taken after the third lesson. A statistical analysis is run to determine whether or not the increase in test scores is significant. This paper assumes if the congregants at Stonepath Church receive a series of expository teaching lessons on biblical worship using pericopes from biblical passages, then the congregants who participate in this study will gain a clearer understanding of biblical worship.
