Gordon Lyons was called by God to preach the Gospel among young people on the streets of Glasgow, Scotland where he then lived. For nearly 25 years, between the early 1970’s and the mid 1990’s, many hundreds of young people heard and learned the words of eternal life, and of the only way of salvation through regeneration, repentance and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
During the course of this 25 year outreach ministry, and as time permitted, the author privately studied theology and other related subjects, using, among others, the 3-volume work on Systematic Theology by Charles Hodge. More recently, these early studies have been augmented by Joel Beeke and Paul Smalley’s Reformed Systematic Theology and by H. Bavinck’s Reformed Dogmatics.
Some years after the initial studies, and following further study in the Word of God, Gordon Lyons began work on Bible Truths Explained (a series of studies on Bible doctrine). Later, a start was made on a series of New Testament commentaries, or NT Expository Notes.
When the outdoor work came to a close some years ago, the author began concentrating his time and efforts on revising and completing this written study material. The two series, Bible Truths Explained and NT Expository Notes are now available free of charge here on this website for reading online or for downloading. God willing, other titles should follow in due course. At the moment, the doctrinal series Bible Truths Explained consists of 27 different studies.
When completed, the NT commentary or NT Expository Notes series should cover many of the New Testament books. The first NT Expository Notes title in this updated series is 2-Corinthians-2021. The year appended to the NT Book title indicates both the release year and the fact that this is a Second Series commentary. The enlarged Second Series commentaries supersede and replace any earlier commentaries of the same name (but lacking a release year suffix)). New NT Expository Notes titles presently being prepared for future release include Paul’s epistle to the Colossians (second series) and the Gospel of Matthew (second series).
It is the author’s earnest prayer that you will find these doctrinal studies and expository commentaries helpful and that God will richly bless you as you search and examine the unchanging and infallible Word of God, which these studies seek to expound to the glory of God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Local Church Affiliation
From 1963 until shortly before the meeting closed in the 1980s, Gordon Lyons met with the believers at Elim Hall (a Christian Brethren assembly, renamed latterly as Crosshill Evangelical Church), in Glasgow, Scotland. Subsequently, and until he left that city, the author enjoyed fellowship with the believers at Harper Memorial Baptist Church in Glasgow. Following a move in 1998 to Largs in North Ayrshire, Scotland, the author associated with the believers at an evangelical church in that town.
In the years spent in both Glasgow and Largs, the author has pursued his written ministry, and will continue to do so for as long as the Lord enables and permits.
