Free Martyn Lloyd-Jones MP3 Round-Up, Again!

A while back I posted a round-up of free and not free Martyn Lloyd-Jones MP3's available around the web. In response to that post, the people at the ML-J recording trust recently sent me the following e-mail and link:

Dear Ian,

For your Keeping Christ Central blog, I thought that you might like to know that we plan to make another 5 MLJ sermons available to download free of charge over the next 5 weeks. They are all based on the Letter to the Hebrews.

The first one is already available at:

Download and be blessed! If you want to re-read the whole round-up of sermons I posted a while back, here it is. The free section of my earlier post is as follows:

There is a free weekly radio program for streaming (and I think for download as well). If I remember correctly, each week features half of a sermon, bracketed by the comments of a guy with a British accent. It is found here.

Finally, five of his regular sermons are available for free download here. The first one, entitled 'Mind, Heart, Will' is especially good. Start there!

I'll leave this with you: do you know of any free Martyn Lloyd-Jones audio download sites? Am I missing anything? Leave a comment and let me know! Or, do you want to donate large amounts of money to the Martyn Lloyd-Jones recording trust, to set up a free download extravaganza? Contact them and let them know!

Update: 3 more free downloads can be found: here.

Yet another update: 9 more free ones can be found here.

Still yet another update: 2 more free ones can be found here (one is not yet working, though).

In addition to this, someone commented the following:

The best way to get free sermons from Dr. Lloyd-Jones is through OnePlace, which will give you the url for the podcast. Then just manually add that to itunes for automatic updates.

In response to my last post, a number of people pointed out that most of ML-J's sermons are not free because it costs money to run a web site and pay a staff. Great point! I thank God for the hard work of the people at the Martyn Lloyd-Jones Recording Trust, and for this new five sermon Christmas gift!

Update: I just received the following note from the good people at the ML-J recording trust:

I see from your blog entry that you still refer to the 9 Pensacola sermons that we posted free back in 2010.

We had to take those down for reasons that I don’t fully understand, and therefore can’t explain.

In their place we posted a set of 8 sermons that MLJ preached at Hawthorne Gospel Church, New Jersey, USA.

The address of their page is:

Kind regards


So, I erased the relevant sermons from earlier in this post, but encourage you to download the new ones available. Happy listening!

Paul Washer Says it Straight

This is the first time I've ever heard any Paul Washer (even though tons of people have recommended him to me). This is right on, though, and totally worth 5 mins of your time.

How Do Committees Work Together to Translate the Bible?

To my knowledge, the King James Version was the first bible to be translated by a committee, that is, a number of scholars who worked together, debated, voted, etc, and produced a great translation of the Bible that was unparalleled in the English language for well over 300 years, and still, is used after 400 years. The clip that follows is more recent, and captures the translation committee of the English Standard Version presenting, debating, and then voting, on how to translate the word for slave into English. It's well worth the four minutes of your time.

G.K. Beale: New Testament Theology is an Unfolding of the Old Testament

In the following helpful video, author G.K. Beale explains the outline to his magnum opus, A New Testament Biblical Theology: The Unfolding of the Old Testament in the New. In doing so, he explains why I want to buy and devour the book, and also why I have a growing desire to do doctoral work in Old Testament. Watch and be blessed:

Justin Taylor has also posted Beale's full chapter on The Eschatological Storyline of the Old Testament: The Old Testament Focus on the Latter Days in PDF format.

Hansen on Keller on Marriage

I appreciated this review of Tim and Kathy Keller's new book on marriage. Collin Hansen points out what is unique about this book in particular (i.e. why do we need another book on marriage?) and made me want to buy the book to read out loud with my amazing wife.

Here is a brief interview with the authors about the book:
