Faux drama in sermons

"Who can possibly fulfill these promises? Who can it be? Gosh we can't guess!

[dramatic pause]

But then a man came in the first century AD and that man said things noone else has said .... that man was Jesus."

Sometimes this kind of rhetoric can be great; it helps us get the flow of salvation history. But sometimes it just feels fake. We need some other ways to reach the climax of our sermons without being camp.
