The Epistles of St. Peter and St. Jude Preached and Explained

Many people have a skewed view of Martin Luther because they've only been exposed to his polemic writings. However, if you really want to know Luther's heart, you need to read some of his sermons, letters, and commentaries. In the latter category, his commentary on Galatians is the most famous, but this set of commentaries on the epistles of Peter and Jude may be an even better place to start. Luther's pastoral concern shines through every page.

Outside of its historical significance, it holds up as a good commentary in its own right. Luther clearly and practically expounds the message of these epistles with excellent application to the Christian life.

His Royal Majesty Speaks

It appears that unbeknownst to me I have in fact been destined for greatness. Like Sigurd, Arthur, and Aragorn it is my fate to be a ruler over men.

"Strange women lying around in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony. I mean if I was to say that I was an emperor just because some moistened bink lobbed a scimitar at me, they'd put me away!"--Dennis

Rick once again you astound me. I have not attained sufficient gnosis to understand what the meaning of your poem and how it relates to my blog on my life as of late.

Eccentric, am I? lol. Very nice. :-D

You've always been eccentric, and you've become even more so since Luther was born. (Aunts are always weird). And you married Dale. ;)
