David Pawson (1930 – 2020)
David Pawson, the British Bible teacher passed away on 21 May 2020, at the age of 90. Pawson wrote about 80 books, produced about 300 Bible teaching videos, and 1500 audio Bible teaching recordings. These can be found in the David Pawson’s Online Teaching Library, and of course on YouTube.
I started following David Pawson about 12 years ago. His calm and easy to follow Bible teaching won me over, as it did millions of people in 120 countries in Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, and the Americas. David Pawson’s Unlocking the Bible Series is a masterpiece in serious but humorous, deep but easy to follow Bible teaching.
Raised in the Methodist Church, he served the Church as a Pastor, before moving to Pastor the Guildford Baptist Church, Millmead, England. Under his teaching, Millmead became the largest Baptist congregation in England. He left Millmead in 1979, and began hosting Bible teaching seminars around the world till his death.
David Pawson “fought a good fight, [he] finished [his] course, [he] kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for [him] a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give [him] at that day…” (2 Timothy 4:7-8 KJV).
Thank you David Pawson, for your simplicity, humility, brilliance, and tremendous legacy of good works; your books, videos, and audio teaching will continue to bless generations upon generations of Bible students – goodbye sir!
Lord, inspire us to be diligent Bible students like David Pawson, Amen!
