7 Letters to 7 Churches
By Louie Marsh, 9-8-2021
This is just about the only part of Revelation I will teach on. I’m not quite as bad as Martin Luther about this though.
He put both Revelation and the book of James into the appendix of his New Testament translation into German. He called the book of James, “a right strawy epistle.” And of Revelation he said that “Apostles ought not to write like that.”
I love the book of James and would not presume to tell an Apostle how to write. However, most of the book does leave me pretty cold. But not these 7 little letters.
False view of them as ages of church history. This was around when Luther lived because he accepted it, at least in part. When it really began, I don’t know.
