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 evangelicalism in the 20th century. For almost 30 years, he was the minister of Westminster Chapel in London.

钟马田牧师(David Martyn Lloyd-Jones, 1899年12月20日- 1981年3月1日)是威尔士新教牧师、传教士和医生,在20世纪福音派改革派中具有重要影响。在将近30年的时间里,他是伦敦威斯敏斯特教堂的牧师。

Early Life and ministry 早期生活与事工

Lloyd-Jones was born in Cardiff and raised in Llangeitho, Ceredigion. His father was a grocer, and he had two brothers: Harold died during the 1918 flu pandemic, while Vincent went on to become a High Court judge. Llangeitho is associated with the Welsh Methodist revival, as it was the location of Daniel Rowland's ministry. Attending a London grammar school between 1914 and 1917 and then St Bartholomew's Hospital as a medical student, in 1921 he started work as assistant to the Royal Physician, Sir Thomas Horder. Lloyd-Jones obtained an MD from London University, and became a Member of the Royal College of Physicians. After struggling for two years over what he sensed was a calling to preach, in 1927 Lloyd-Jones returned to Wales, having married Bethan Phillips (with whom he later had two children, Elizabeth and Ann), accepting an invitation to minister at a church in Aberavon (Port Talbot).

钟马田出生在加的夫,在苏格兰的兰格西托长大。他的父亲是一名杂货商,他有两个兄弟:哈罗德死于1918年的流感大流行,而文森特后来成为一名高等法院法官。Llangeitho与威尔士卫理公会复兴有关,因为它是丹尼尔·罗兰(Daniel Rowland)牧师的所在地。1914年至1917年,他在伦敦文法学校上学,然后在圣巴塞洛缪医院学习医学院,1921年,他开始担任皇家医生托马斯·霍德爵士的助手。Lloyd-Jones在伦敦大学获得医学博士学位,并成为皇家医师学院的成员。在为传教的召唤挣扎了两年之后,1927年,劳埃德-琼斯回到威尔士,娶了贝森·菲利普斯(他后来有了两个孩子,伊丽莎白和安),接受了阿伯拉文(塔尔博特港)教堂牧师的邀请。

Westminster Chapel 威斯敏斯特教堂

After a decade ministering in Aberavon, in 1939 he went back to London, where he had been appointed as associate pastor of Westminster Chapel, working alongside G. Campbell Morgan. The day before he was officially to be accepted into his new position, World War II broke out in Europe. During the same year, he became the president of the Inter-Varsity Fellowship of Students (known today as the Universities and Colleges Christian Fellowship (UK)). During the war he and his family moved to Haslemere, Surrey. In 1943 Morgan retired, leaving Lloyd-Jones as the sole Pastor of Westminster Chapel.


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 the Friday evening Bible studies, which were, in effect, sermons in the same style. He would take many months, even years, to expound a chapter of the Bible verse by verse. His sermons would often be around fifty minutes to an hour in length, attracting many students from universities and colleges in London. His sermons were also transcribed and printed (virtually verbatim) in the weekly Westminster Record, which was read avidly by those who enjoyed his preaching.


Later life 以后的生活

Lloyd-Jones retired from his ministry at Westminster Chapel in 1968, following a major operation. For the rest of his life, he concentrated on editing his sermons to be published, counselling other ministers, answering letters and attending conferences. Perhaps his most famous publication is a 14 volume series of commentaries on the Epistle to the Romans, the first volume of which was published in 1970.


Despite spending most of his life living and ministering in England, Lloyd-Jones was proud of his roots in Wales. He best expressed his concern for his home country through his support of the Evangelical Movement of Wales: he was a regular speaker at their conferences, preaching in both English and Welsh. Since his death, the movement has published various books, in English and Welsh, bringing together selections of his sermons and articles.

尽管钟马田牧师一生中大部分时间都在英格兰生活和传教,但他对自己的家乡威尔士感到自豪。他对威尔士福音派运动(Evangelical Movement of Wales)的支持最能表达他对祖国的关心:他经常在他们的会议上发表演讲,用英语和威尔士语讲道。自他去世后,该运动出版了各种书籍,用英语和威尔士语,汇集了他的布道和文章的选集。

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, St David's Day. He was buried at Newcastle Emlyn, near Cardigan, west Wales. A well-attended thanksgiving service was held at Westminster Chapel on 6 April.1980年6月8日,


Since his death, there have been various publications regarding Lloyd-Jones and his work, most popularly a biography in two volumes by Iain Murray
