1 Corinthians 2:4; 1 Corinthians 3:16;


The present study is concerned with the nature of these as they find expression in the words of Martin Luther. We are restricting ourselves to only a portion of the first: to the Word, i.e., the Gospel. A study of the Sacraments would lead the study on to many tangents unrelated to our immediate concern. Furthermore, the genius of Lutheranism has often been identified as a Theology of the Word: it is in the sphere of a Word-principle, then, that Lutheranism’s own view should appear in its clearest expression. The Word as a means of Grace and its relation to the Office of the Ministry are our chief interests.
