About this Episode

Join Pastor Bryan Wolfmueller, Joshua Sherman (Tending Our Nets) and myself as we discuss Law and Gospel from the Lutheran perspective!

In this episode we break the title up into two parts: Law & Gospel. In the first half, we seek to understand exactly what the New Testament author's mean when they use phrases like "the Law", "the Law of Moses", "the Law of Christ", ect.; how the Law applied to Israelite's under the Old Covenant and how it applies to Christians under the New Covenant today; and finally different uses of the Law for believers and unbelievers in Jesus Christ alike!

Then, in the second half, after seeing our need for a Savior because the Law exposes the fact we are sinners, we dive into what exactly "The Gospel" is by examining promises found in the Old Testament as well as the New Testament for follower's of Jesus Christ! We also examine the Greek word "πίστις" (pistis - "faith/trust") as we learn what it really means to "believe in Jesus"!

We also get into issues like the New Perspective on Paul, Karl Barth's arguments and Lutheran answers to his ideology, as well as a whole host of side topics you would expect when you sit a #Lutheran, #Calvinist and #Non-Calvinist down on a CSG episode!!!

Had a blast with Pr. Bryan as well as Josh Sherman and cannot wait for Episode #3!!!
