Welcome to!

It is wonderful to be able to communicate electronically.

In 1976 a friend called Ben started recording my preaching for his own use. But people who wanted to keep up with the series began borrowing his recordings. Ben's tapes soon built into a library. So we started recording the talks properly and distributing them to friends around the world. With the advent of Matthias Media we started selling the tapes and then CDs to buy better equipment and distribute to the public at large.

These days the web rules the world of communication.


It has always been my aim to glorify Christ by faithfully preaching his gospel through the prayerful exposition of his word to the people he gives me to love.

This website aims to extend that gospel preaching and exposition of God's word to a wider audience by gathering in one easy and accessible place what has already been said and written and what is still being produced weekly. If you find it helpful please recommend it to your friends and acquaintances.

We are not trying to use the site to make money but it does cost to set it up and to improve it—so if you would like to contribute please make use of the donate button on this page.

I have another friend called Ben to thank for setting up this site and I am also thankful to those who regularly maintain it. How they do it is a mystery to me—providing the content is enough to tax my brain!

The Most Dangerous Idea »

From the Dean

Which dangerous idea has the greatest potential to change the world for the better?

This was a question put to the panellists at the end of a QandA show during the “Festival of Dangerous Ideas” last year.

One of the panellists asked time to think of an answer. That, in itself, is an...

Bullies And Censorship »

From the Dean

The fear of words is rational because words are powerful. But censorship is generally the response of irrational fear by powerful people.

The powerful person who is fearful is the person most to be feared. Out of fear they attack any perceived threat, as they use their power to protect...

Sin In The Life Of A Believer »

From the Dean

Sin in the Life of a Believer is one of the issues that the Jesus Brings… programme brings to the forefront. If Jesus Brings forgiveness, rebirth, holiness and transformation, why do Christians continue to sin? Why do I have such a struggle with sin? Why is the world not becoming a better place...

Why Bible Teaching Is Evangelistic »

From the Dean

One of the ruder letters that I have received was from a man I do not know. He wrote “I know what you mean” and then, before abusing me, accused me of things I have never said nor ever meant. Deconstruction is rude. It does not respect the speakers’ ability to know or say what is on their own...

The Plea For Judgement »

God has taken his place in the divine council;
    in the midst of the gods he holds judgment:
“How long will you judge unjustly
    and show partiality to the wicked?

Give justice to the weak and the fatherless;
    maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute.
Rescue the weak and the needy;
    deliver them from the hand of the wicked.”

They have neither knowledge nor understanding,
    they walk about in darkness;
    all the foundations of the earth are shaken.

I said, “You are gods,
    sons of the Most High, all of you;
nevertheless, like men you shall die,
    and fall like any prince.”

Arise, O God, judge the earth;
    for you shall inherit all the nations!

Why Holidays Are More Christian Than Holy Days »

From the Dean

There are Holy Days and there are holidays and Christians support both, though they prefer holidays.

The word ‘holiday’ comes from Holy Day, but has been secularised. The Holy Day celebrates something of eternal, supernatural or religious significance. The holiday is just taking time off work....

Jesus Brings: Light And Judgement »

And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light
because their works were evil.
