Frequently Asked Questions
Do you have transcripts of the sermons?
At the MLJ Trust we only have the rights to the audio versions of the sermons. The rights to the text are held by various publishers like Banner of Truth and Crossway. The good news is that many of Dr Lloyd-Jones's books are sermon collections, and his major series are all still in print and available most economically through Amazon books. That does involve a cost, however, and so please remember that you can always listen to those same sermons on our website as many times as you would like for free."
Why don't you use the KJV in the sermon descriptions and weekly emails?
Dr Lloyd-Jones felt that the King James version was the best overall translation of the Bible of his day, and it was the version he used for his private devotions. Having said that, as the KJ translation was made over 1,500 years after the Apostolic era in Christian history, he did not feel one should attribute infallibility to any translation, and so to prepare for his sermons he would examine (and share with his congregation) different translations of the verses he was covering (but only those translations that are in the Reformed Evangelical tradition), and sometimes (as in his series in Ephesians 2 on "fitly framed together") he thought that other translations were better (but not often!).
The reason we use the ESV version for the sermon descriptions and weekly emails is simply because it is currently the most widely read Evangelical version.
I want to download a single sermon. What is the best way to do this?
Under each sermon description is a button that says, “Download”. Click the “Download” button and save the Sermon to your desktop. Alternately, you can right-click on your mouse and choose, “Save File As” to save the mp3 to your desktop.
What should I do if I want to download a group of sermons?
This feature is disabled for the moment, but will be available again soon.
How do I download a sermon directly to my iOS device (iPod, iPhone, iPad)?
According to Apple, a documented limitation of iOS is that it will not allow a user to download an MP3 file directly to the device. Therefore, we recommend that you download sermons to your desktop or laptop computer and then add them to iTunes. Once you sync your iOS device with iTunes, the sermons you have downloaded will be accessible on the device.
Can you tell me more about Dr. Lloyd-Jones?
David Martyn Lloyd-Jones (20 December 1899 – 1 March 1981) was a Welsh Protestant minister, preacher and medical doctor who was influential in the Reformed wing of the British evangelical movement in the 20th century. For almost 30 years, he was the minister of Westminster Chapel in London.
Lloyd-Jones was well known for his style of expository preaching, and the Sunday morning and evening meetings at which he officiated drew crowds of several thousand, as did his Friday evening Bible studies.
Lloyd-Jones preached for the last time on 8 June 1980 at Barcombe Baptist Chapel. After a lifetime of work, he died peacefully in his sleep at Ealing on 1 March 1981.
Since his death, there have been various publications regarding Lloyd-Jones and his work, most popularly a biography in two volumes by Iain Murray.
