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.

100 Days of Theological Clerihews
Day 16: John of Damascus

John of Damascus[1]

Saint John the Damascene,
His beard’s the best you’ve ever seen,
Said no to the emperor’s strictures
Because he liked to kiss pictures.

[1] I realize that I accidentally took a month off from writing these clerihews. I decided that as long as I followed through with 100 days of clerihews, it didn’t matter if they were consecutive days.
