The Hermeneutical Significance of the Law/Gospel Distinction For Luther, the distinction between Law and Gospel was of such a fundamental nature that the ability to draw the distinction between them determined whether or not one was a “theologian,” i.e., whether or not one was a Christian: Therefore whoever knows well how to distinguish the Gospel from the Law should give thanks to God and know that he is a real theologian.
