Bible Text: Romans 1:16-17 |


On October 31,1517 a Roman Catholic priest/monk of the Augustinian order named Martin Luther nailed a document to the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg, Saxony (modern day Germany) inviting scholars, professors and students to a discussion about the sale and value of indulgences. Luther had no idea that within two weeks of his invitation his treatise would be translated by students from it’s original Latin into the German tongue of the common people, printed in mass and distributed to every town and city in Germany. But with the publication and spread of what is now known as Luther’s Ninety-Five Theses the Protestant Reformation was birthed. In commemoration of that event, the recovery of the simple gospel of Christ and it’s far reaching consequences this biographical sketch of the reformer Martin Luther was presented for the building up of the body of Christ and the encouragement of Christ’s people at West Hills.
