Martin Luther and the Jews
You may have heard many things about Martin Luther’s attitude toward the Jewish nation. Did Luther want all the Jews expelled from Germany? Did the Nazis get their beliefs from Luther’s pen? In this paper, Mark Albrecht explores some of the misunderstandings about Luther’s feelings toward the Jews. He doesn’t build Luther up too much, but he certainly doesn’t bury him either. This essay presents the cultural context for the comments by Luther that are so often misunderstood.
