Stott with other pastors

The Bible for Today



The Bible for Today features in-depth Bible studies from the ministry of John Stott, founder of the Langham Partnership. These sermons are made available to the public through the generosity of All Souls Church in London.


Episode 1 – Introduction to Genesis (Part 1)

John Stott explains why we must have the firm foundation of Genesis in place if we are ever to build our understanding of Scripture.


Episode 2 – Introduction to Genesis (Part 2)

John Stott shows how Genesis is ‘God Breathed’ and must be regarded primarily as a book of salvation and not of science.

Episode 3 – A Charge to Church Elders (Part 1)

Whilst the leadership within each church may vary, John Stott uncovers the blueprint for church leadership that is laid out in Scripture.

Episode 4 – A Charge to Church Elders (Part 2)

John Stott uses the example of the apostle Paul to show how church leadership should be done according to Scripture.

Episode 5 – The Status of Sons (Part 1)

John Stott explains what is involved in being a child of God and living as God’s children in the world with God as our Father.

Episode 6 – The Status of Sons (Part 2)

John Stott shows us that for us to be sons of God we must be united to Him by faith in Jesus Christ, making us God’s children by adoption.

Episode 7 – God’s New Society (Part 1)

John Stott explains why we can feel a sense of meaninglessness and lostness in the world.

Episode 8 – God’s New Society (Part 2)

John Stott shows us that our relationship with God is made possible through the work of Christ in abolishing the law in order to create a new humanity.

Episode 9 – No Compromise with the Devil (Part 1)

Whilst Christ-likeness should be the goal of every Christian, John Stott shows us how the Holy Spirit is transforming us into the image of Christ.


Episode 10 – No Compromise with the Devil (Part 2)

When we succumb to temptation as Christians, John Stott shows us that Christ left us an example of how to deal with temptation and the devil.


Episode 11 – Unto Christ (Part 1)

John Stott shows us that as Christians we are always to set Christ before us, and our concern should be to serve Him more and more.


Episode 12 – Unto Christ (Part 2)

John Stott explains how our relationships with our colleagues and one another will only be right when we are in a right relationship with God.


Episode 13 – Peace with God (Part 1)

John Stott shows us that peace is far more than the absence of conflict or noise. He explains that true peace is different because it relies not on external circumstances but on our relationship with God through Christ.


Episode 14 – Peace with God (Part 2)

We can long for peace between nations, in our jobs, in our homes and in our relationships. But John Stott shows us that we will never be at peace with one another until we are at peace with God through Jesus Christ.


Episode 15 – Encounter with Jesus (Part 1)

John Stott explains that Christianity is not us being a slave to a belief or ethical system but the freedom that can only be found through faith and trust in Christ.


Episode 16 – Encounter with Jesus (Part 2)

John Stott shows us that there is a world of difference between knowing about Jesus and knowing Jesus personally, and how this can only happen by us opening our hearts to accept Christ as Savior.


Episode 17 – The Spirit and the Bible (Part 1)

John Stott explains how the Bible came into existence and how God spoke to individual writers through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. John Stott shows why the Holy Bible and the Holy Spirit are inseperable.


John Stott shows how that being faithful to the Bible can often result in the church facing opposition, and why we need to be steadfast in our belief in the Scriptures.
