Our Current Bible Study
Why the Cross? Luther’s Heidelberg Disputation of 1518
Our current Study is focusing on the Cross, the Theology of the Cross. It is based on Martin Luther’s 1518 Heidelberg Disputation in which he outlined the basis for the theology that led him to post the 95 Theses and confront the practices of indulgences in the church. It is the foundational lens through which Lutheran Christians view Sacred Scripture and ultimately world. These theses lead Christians into Scripture as the sole source and norm for know God and His Christ. Through that Scripture, we learn who Christ is, that the narrative story God reveals in His Word is not only all about Christ, but it gives us Christ. Try as we might, we can receive this Christ only through Faith. God did not have to do any of what His story of the Cross tells us. Nor did Christ have to die for us. Out of their great mercy and love for us, out of pure Grace, Christ became man to take our place, assume our punishment and the wrath of God, yet to defeat the power of sin, death, and the devil, to rise victorious and reign and rule in His Kingdom as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. This story is OUR story, it is the story of the Cross where Christ bids us to come and follow Him, to die, that we might receive life.
