In the first several hundred years after the death and resurrection of Jesus, Christians were being challenged for their faith and were even being put to death for believing in Jesus Christ and not in any other gods or saying that the Roman Caesar was divine. Centuries later, this creed still matters, confessing our Triune God and our Lord Jesus Christ, who entered time in His incarnation and left bloody smudges on a cross for the forgiveness of sins.
Pastor Kirk Clayton of Zion Lutheran Church in Mascoutah, Illinois, joins guest host Pastor Peter Ill to confess the faith and to learn more about how the Apostles’ Creed is important in the life of the Church today. They ran out of time to talk about Jesus’ descent into hell, but Concord Matters covered that topic on June 2, 2020 and you can learn more about that here: kfuo.org/2020/06/02/concord-matters-060220-the-descent-to-hell/
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.
