JESUS MISUNDERSTOOD - LUTHER REJECTED

Passage: Matthew 16:21-28

Speaker: Pastor Matt Douglas

Category: Main Service

In our Gospel reading, we see that Peter did not think Jesus should die. After all, he was the Son of God. How could Jesus die? What Peter did not realize was that he was getting in the way of God’s plan to save us. Just as Peter misunderstood God’s plan for our salvation, the Catholic Church of Luther’s time misunderstood and distorted the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It was the Word of God that led The Church back to the Gospel and the pure teaching of the Reign of God through Jesus Christ.
