Reformation500 Video Series
The work of the reformers changed religious life drastically. This impact continues to be felt everywhere in today’s world. Hear more about the Reformation’s impact on the Bible, spiritual life and the church.
The upheaval of the political system during the Reformation was clearly evident and the effects are still prevalent today especially in the areas of religious freedom, money and war.
The reformers gave people a new sense of their own worth and identity. This higher opinion of self-worth is still prevalent in today’s society in the areas of arts and education, technology, and work and home life.
In this five-part version of the documentary, groups are encouraged to watch each segment in conjunction with the Bible study, “500: The Impact of the Reformation Today — Biblical Foundations,” by Dr. Timothy P. Dost, an associate professor of historical theology at the Seminary. Leaders who choose to lead the study in five sessions should select one of the main points or be selective in some other way. The sessions, as well as their component parts, mostly stand alone for one-time use.
