Mark Homiletics Devotional Living a Christian Life

Tab Name:

Dr. J.D. Jones preached this commentary as a series of sermons during his Tuesday morning ministry when he first arrived at Richmond Hill Congregation Church. This verse by verse commentary is honestly and warmly written with practical advice on living a Christian life. This work was orignally part of the larger work by J.D Jones called the Devotional Commentary. Mark is the shortest gospel, yet Dr. Jones wrote 2 megabytes of warm, inspiring commentary!

I wish some publisher would reprint Jones' commentary on the Gospel of Mark, which was originally written for the Devotional Commentary. His commentary is homiletical rather than explanatory or doctrinal, but I still think it is one of the best."

—Warren Wiersbe, 50 People Every Christian Should Know: Learning from Spiritual Giants of the Faith.

"The best preaching commentary on the Gospel of Mark."

—Warren Wiersbe, A Basic Library for Bible Students

This resource is provided in commentary and topic book format. Most people prefer the commentary format. Each is labeled on the download page.

About J.D Jones (Courtesy of Warren Wiersbe):
John Daniel Jones (1865-1942) was at first known as Jones of Bournemouth because of a man with a similar name. J.D. Jones was a Congregationalist who was friends with W. Robertson Nicoll and on a lesser scale, Dwight L. Moody.

He could have been F.B. Meyer's successor at Christ Church in Westminster, or John Henry Jowett's successor when Jowett went to Fifth Avenue Presbyterian in New York City. Instead, J.D. Jones remained for thirty-nine years as the beloved pastor of Richmond Hill Congregation Church in Bournemouth, retiring in June 6, 1937. He pastored with a genuine love for people and a no non-sense approach.

He was a biblical preacher, but he was not an expositor of the same type as Alexander Maclaren or the gifted Welshman D. Martyn Lloyde-Jones. In the biography J.D. Jones of Bournemouth, Arthur Porritt remarked: "All his sermons were on a very high level. He was always on a plateau, but—as friendly critic figuratively said—there were no mountains and no valleys—just a uniform level of excellence."

"When J.D. Jones took a text", wrote one religious editor, "it was the text that mattered, not the preacher's commentary upon it. The preacher's commentary had but one aim—to recall its hearers to the richness and wonder of the truth which the text enshrined. He never searched for excitingly unusual texts, nor did he strive to find startlingly unusual interpretations of his texts."

—Warren Wiersbe, 50 People Every Christian Should Know: Learning from Spiritual Giants of the Faith.

Confession of a Baptist Preacher: I had avoided Mark's gospel as a preaching/teaching text due to 1) Matthew and Luke typically including more detail in their versions of the same story; and 2) the best material written on the gospels is for Matthew, Luke & John, not Mark.


Well, Matthew and Luke still are the longer synoptic texts; but as I've used this commentary module by Jones over the last several years, I am, again and again, impressed with the content of this work. I've got to tell you that it is one of the most profitable works on all of the gospels available in the vast eSword digital library. My complaint? There aren't more works available by this author!


Again, Mr. Bond, thanks for making this kind of conservative, evangelical material available for our use.
