Martin Luther referred to Philip’s Loci Communes as “one of the clearest statements of the Christian religion ever written.” With this in mind, pastors Gillespie and Riley read and discuss Philip Melancthon’s Loci on the power of the law and the gospel. What is the power of the Law? What distinguishes God’s Word of Law from human definitions of the law?

Text: Commonplaces: Loci Communes 1521 by Philip Melanchthon
