Martin Luther read the Word, translated it into the common language, put it to music—and the world exploded with Holy Spirit energy. Lutherans have characteristic ways of reading, understanding the Word and living with the Word, which is at the heart of our lives and our congregations. This course will introduce and develop the Lutheran understandings of God's Word for us. 


Rolf Jacobson, Professor of Old Testament and The Alvin N. Rogness Chair of Scripture, Theology and Ministry
