Luther used his sermons to inculcate the basic structures of Christian doctrine and life: the distinction between Law and Gospel and the use of Christian freedom and love for the neighbor. His sermons in this volume particularly apply these principles to the administration of the Lord’s Supper and the remembrance of the saints.
In addition to instruction in Christian doctrine from the pulpit over the course of the 1520s, Luther also sought to teach the Wittenberg congregation to understand and appreciate the “estate of marriage” and the “temporal sword” as God’s own appointed order for human life in the world.
