The 1528 disputation in Bern is upon us. The Reformation moves forward and a brief introduction to a soon to be important player on the scene.
Preparing for the big finale of Habakkuk, a little review of the connectedness of the book. Focusing then on walking by faith in the promises of Jesus of His great victory over sin and the judgment he brings.
Setting the stage for the next big development in the Reformation in Switzerland. Taking a look at Bern, Basle, St. Gall, and Schaffhausen. The Reformation readying to pounce.
Since we can’t record a new podcast with the group, I am just sharing a few thoughts I had about following God but still looking for Elijah. A problem that is more common even in myself than I would like to admit.
The Anabaptists are spreading out from Zurich to St. Gall, to Strasbourg, and even returning to Zurich. The Reformation continues to oppose as we see how they invaded Strasbourg and the reaction to them there and in a few other places.
The gang records the first Pilgrim Talk of the year. Habakkuk 3 is examined. Discussing the relationship between wrath and salvation comes to the forefront.
The year 1526 also saw the opening salvo of controversy concerning the Lord’s Supper. Against the Fanatics marks the beginning of a long controversy that splits the Reformation. This podcast is a quick look at the reasons Luther goes to war against the Swiss Reformed.
Another podcast without the dynamic duo, as we look at the work of Tolkein (since he just had a birthday). And especially comparing him to modern day fantasy writers like George R. R. Martin. What do each of these writers say about their faith, their culture, and their values?
The Swiss gather to debate the Reformation. Eck vs. Oecolampadius. Faber vs. Haller. It is an epic showdown and the results are debated today. But the disputation and the way it was handled has some lessons for us today.
