MetadataShow full item record
“This message was originally spoken, not printed and read. The audience heard it in the German language. Professor August Pieper (1857-1946) of the (Wisconsin) Lutheran Seminary at Wauwatosa presented it in person. The occasion was the convention of the Wisconsin Synod’s Nebraska District. The place was St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church in Norfolk. Of special interest is the over-arching theme of that convention: the 400th anniversary of Martin Luther’s 95 Theses igniting the Reformation (1517). In the introduction of this address, the author states, “I would like to present the treasure of the Reformation according to the concept which the greatest man of the Lutheran church in this country, Dr. Walther, introduced to identify the essence of Lutheranism: the priesthood of all believers.” This translation of Luthers Lehre vom christlichen Priestertum comes from Professor John Jeske.” (Note to the Reader -Pastor Tom Jeske, 2013)
