Text: Albrecht Peters, Commentary on Luther’s Catechism: Lord’s Prayer, p.165ff.

Show Notes: Pr. Riley and Pr. Gillespie dive back into Albrecht Peters’ commentary on Martin Luther’s Small Catechism. This week, they read “Lord’s Prayer” and discuss how the Gospel opens the way for us to receive and enjoy forgiveness for Christ’s sake, and how God’s blood-soaked forgiveness frees us to extend absolution to others, even our enemies.
