“Good exegesis is what gives me confidence that I understand the passage and can convey it faithfully to people. I mean that’s one reason I read commentaries; I don’t want to be coming up with some novel interpretation of a passage on my own. I want to be confident that responsible exegetes have come to the same conclusions I’ve come to so that I can be confident I’m actually telling people what the Bible says. I also want to start asking, ‘Okay, now that I know what the passage says, what’s the best way to explain that to people?’ And so, good exposition ought to be really closely tied to and flow out of exegesis.” — Ligon Duncan
