Dan emphasises the command to Timothy to “preach the word” and highlights the various reasons why Paul gives him this solemn charge – made all the more significant and striking in that this chapter forms the very last written…

Exposition of 2 Timothy Ch 1 (46 min)

Why Stand for Truth? (42 min)

PART 1 – Mervyn Hall introduces a series of messages on “Why we believe what we believe” by asking a basic preliminary question – “Why stand for truth?” Is truth still as important as ever? Isn’t it all just a matter of opinion? Should not love hold the trump card over truth? Basing his remarks on Paul’s two epistles to Timothy, Mervyn not only defends the basic concept of truth, but also outlines 5 reasons why we still must stand…

The Chastening of Believers (30 min)

THE JUDGMENTS OF SCRIPTURE PART 8 – Michael Penfold preaches on the topic of “chastening” – the Father’s loving discipline of us as His sons, designed to correct our faults and develop our character. Michael outlines 3 categories of chastening: verbal, judicial and developmental. Both the nature and purpose of each one are outlined, accompanied by examples from Scripture (Readings: 1 Pet 4:17-18, Rev 3:19, 2 Tim 3:16-17, 1 Cor 11:30-32, Heb 12:4-13) (Message preached 2nd Dec 2018)

Investigating the Bible (2) (45 min)

PART 8 – Mervyn Hall gives a hands-on demonstration – using 2 Tim 2:15-16 – of how to study the Bible. (Graphics here and here). 1st: Divide the text (punctuation, conjunctions, verbs, participles, prepositions etc.). 2nd: Organise the text (flow and main point). 3rd: Probe the text (note the context, culture, history, and examine grammar). 4th: Synthesise the text (pull together and check for consistency with the rest of Scripture) (Message preached 18th Mar 2018)

Inspiration and Inscripturation (38 min)

PART 2 – Peter Scarsbrook expounds the truth of the “inspiration of Scripture”, basing his remarks on the two relevant and crucial New Testament passages – 2 Tim 3:15-17 and 2 Pet 1:19-21. What is “inspiration”? Are the actual words inspired, or just the thoughts and ideas they embody? These and other questions are examined as Peter defends with verbal, plenary inspiration of the Bible (Message preached 21st Jan 2018)

The Principles of Biblical Hermeneutics (42 min)

Dispensationalism Part 1 – Laying a foundation for a wide ranging series of messages on dispensational truth, Mervyn Hall preaches on the basic principles of Biblical interpretation. How should the Bible be approached and studied? To rightly divide the word (2 Tim 2:15) – to cut a straight course through Scripture – what principles should guide us? Mervyn outlines 5: the synthesis principle; the historical principle; the literal principle; the grammatical principle and the practical principle (Message preached 6th Sept…
