A few of Mark Dever’s overview sermons

While verse-by-verse, word-by-word, close examination of phrases and clauses and parsing and syntax is important, it’s also important to step back and look at the great themes of redemptive history. It’s good to back up from verse-by-verse exposition and see the epic story from the bird’s eye.

I think people need their pastors to make sure their people see the grand schema. It is something that must be done, but is difficult to do well.

Here are a few overview sermons from Mark Dever where he steps back to look at the big picture. They are good model for macro exposition. Give them a listen if you have time.

Promises Made– The Message of the Old Testament

Promises Kept– The Message of the New Testament

What Does God Want of Us– The Message of the Bible
