Hermann Sasse explains why faith and hope belong together: Both are bound to history.
Once a persecutor of the church, he was called by Christ to share His Good News with the Gentiles — and, down the centuries, with us.
As a Christian, you already know what history is about: Jesus coming to save you.
What was at stake in the 1974 “Walkout”? The authority and inerrancy of Holy Scripture.
The September issue of The Lutheran Witness digs in to the relationship between archaeology and apologetics.
The Holy Spirit uses our witness to Christ’s work to clear roadblocks and prepare the path for faith. That is the apologetic task.
Attacks on the historicity of Scripture’s account of Jesus are quickly answered with a discussion on the sources of the life of Christ, the New Testament and the commentaries of the Early Church fathers.
This year, the LCMS celebrates 175 years of God’s blessing in proclaiming, preaching and teaching the truth.
The April issue of The Lutheran Witness celebrates the 175th anniversary of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod, under the theme “Our Lutheran Heritage: 175 years.”
Of the original 14 congregations of the LCMS, 12 remain active. This is the story of how God has taken them through 175 years.
Who we are — a 175-year-old church body — is important, but it pales in comparison to the history of the church. But what we do — preaching and pointing to Jesus for 175 years — is quite significant indeed.
Sasse was a faithful witness to the cross of Christ in his teaching and writing but also in a life that brought him into conflict and suffering on account of the Gospel.
