A Man Named Martin – Part 1: The Man and Part 2: The Moment
Sundays 9:45 to 10:45am (room – Pastor Phil’s office)
September 11 to October 23
In this seven-session Bible study, Luther’s life and times are examined through the lens of history, religion, and theology.
Joining forces in examining these aberrant teachings and the role Martin Luther had in debating and, ultimately, rejecting them is a cast of scholars, professional church workers, and pastors. Hear Dr. Paul Maier, Dr. Ken Schurb, Dr. John Nunes, Dr. Joel Lampe, Dr. Susan Mobley, Dr. Joel Biermann, and others, along with The Lutheran Hour Speaker and host Dr. Gregory Seltz, add insight and expertise to this fascinating period in the life of Martin Luther.
In A Man Named Martin – Part 1: The Man viewers encounter a 15th-century religious reformer from Germany who broke ranks with the Catholic Church. A Man Named Martin—Part 2: The Moment examines the errant teachings and wayward traditions of the Late Medieval Church that eventually sparked the Protestant Reformation, a theological overhaul set in motion most notably by Martin Luther’s nailing of the 95 Theses to the church door at Wittenberg.
