Overview

MARTIN LUTHER'S 95 THESES....is a text that everyone knows, most refer to, but few actually read. Nevertheless, it is such a crucial text that it deserves to be read and studied by Christian people today.

The main theme is that he is calling out the Catholics of the day and the pope for their practices of selling salvation and forgiving sin. Reading through the list, I can just feel myself transported back to the early 16th century and see a crowd gather round after the thump, thump, thumping of Luther's hammer affixes the parchment to the door. This was a brave man, standing up for what he believed in.

A touching theses, where Martin Luther points out the failings of the Catholic Church during the renaissance and the building of the basillica of Saint Peter. His arguments then, and some even now are accurate, to the point and relevant. A well put together set of arguments which changed the Religion of Christianity forever.

In 1510 he visited Rome and was appalled by the behavior of church officials and the sale of indulgences. In Catholic theology, an indulgence is the remission of the physical and temporal punishment for sins that is endured in Purgatory after death, even though the legal guilt has been pardoned by absolution. In Luther’s era, indulgences were being sold by the Church to raise money for refurbishing the Basilica of St. Peter in Rome. The slogan attributed to the Dominican friar Johann Tetzel epitomized the sale of indulgences: "As soon as the coin in the coffer rings, the soul from purgatory springs." (see Thesis 27).

In light of his discouragement with the Church, as Luther studied and lectured on Psalms, Hebrews, and Romans he came to new insights about repentance, salvation, and the role of faith. Especially from his study of Romans, he began to understand that salvation is a gift of God by grace through Christ received by faith alone (sola fide). He also came to believe that there should be a clear distinction between "law," obedience and salvation by obedience to the will of God by law, and "gospel," forgiveness of sins and salvation based on the sacrificial death of Jesus.

    This is just a list of the Theses. If you do not already have additional information concerning them, they are not easy to understand. I recommend them just for the historical value of seeing what was actually publised.
