How do we clearly confess what we believe about the Lord’s Supper? What was happening during the time of the Reformation that caused the need to clarify what Lutherans believe? And, what is Crypto-Calvinism and how does it play into our view of the Sacrament?
Rev. Mark Bestul, pastor of Calvary Lutheran Church in Elgin, Illinois, joins host Rev. Sean Smith to discuss the Epitome of the Formula of Concord, Article VII: The Holy Supper of Christ, Status of the Controversy (paragraphs 1-5).
Pull out your Book of Concord and join a lively discussion of the Lutheran Confessions. Each week, host Rev. Sean Smith and a roundtable groups of guests take an in-depth look at passages from parts of the Book of Concord so you can have a deeper understanding of your Lutheran faith.
