In this episode, Pastors Gillespie and Riley dive back into Heiko Oberman’s biography of Martin Luther. This week, Oberman explains how The Freedom of a Christian was Luther’s formulation of the Christian as “simul” in order to counter the theological arguments of both Johann von Staupitz and Johannes Tauler.
