Treasures of the Reformation
Using pieces from “Martin Luther: Art and the Reformation” the Rev. Dr. Matthew C. Harrison, president of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod, teaches interesting and important facts about the Reformation. The 500th anniversary of the Reformation provides an excellent opportunity to recall and learn the importance of Luther’s teachings on the truth of God’s love for people by grace alone, by faith alone, by Scripture alone, through Christ alone. Luther translated the Bible into German, because he believed that the Bible is the cradle in which Christ lies. He sought to make the Scriptures available and understandable for all people. Luther’s translation led to the King James Bible in 1611.
