Bible Study

Five-part video series and Bible study

A lone monk’s actions 500 years ago continue to have a great impact. Hear from some of the world’s greatest scholars on Martin Luther and the significance of the Reformation for our modern world in “500: The Impact of the Reformation Today,” a documentary from Concordia Seminary, St. Louis that reveals how the Reformation surrounds us more than we realize through religion, politics and our society.

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.

Dost writes: “The concentration here is not on what passages the reformers took to heart as they did their work, but rather on the ways in which the early church and the people of the Old Testament reflected the same sorts of values, providing a solid foundation for the Reformation that was later to arise.”
