Several more discussions for unity happen culminating in the Diet of Regensburg in 1541. We get see Bucer, Melanchthon, Luther, and meet a new player on the scene from Cologne. Take a walk with us.
The Reformation had not yet given up on reconciliation with the Roman Church, and this is the first of a few meetings that need to be mentioned. And surprise Bucer is involved.
We continue to wrap up the 1530’s as we take a look at what is going on in Hesse. Specifically how the Hesse church was effected by Bucer toward the Reformed from the Lutheran.
As we enter a new decade in the Reformation, the 1540’s, we need to meet one of the players who will soon be front and center on stage: Jan Laski. And we need to remember what exactly these Reformers were standing up for and against as they gave up their previous lives to serve Jesus Christ.
As we have gotten to about 1540, we need to catch up with John Calvin. And in 1540 he has some big news thanks to the Apostle of Marriage, Martin Bucer.
Just a quick note about being on vacation and why more thorough programs will be taking the week off. But I couldn’t help sneaking in a few thoughts on Psalm 138 and giving praise, thanks, and glory to the Lord Jesus Christ in the face of the world and its gods.
We walk into Italy to take a look at the group of Reformers growing there, and to talk for a moment about why the reformation in Italy turned out differently. Of course we talk about what that means for us today.
