See all 2 images Commentary on Peter & Jude (Luther Classic Commentaries)
A timeless commentary written by one of the most influential theologians in history. Though often neglected, the New Testament epistles of Peter and Jude offer important insights for Christians in their daily walk. In this commentary, Luther explores the biblical text in the clear yet direct style for which he is known. Emphasizing the salvation and grace promised through Jesus Christ, Luther calls Christians to live radically as they wait for the future life.
Martin Luther (1483-1546) left his comfortable upbringing to become a Roman Catholic monk and later a professor of theology at the University of Wittenberg in Saxony. His study and teaching of the Greek text of the New Testament represent the beginnings of modern textual study, and his widely disseminated writings sparked the Protestant Reformation in Europe. Other works by Luther include Commentary on Romans and Commentary on Galatians.
