C.F.W. Walther on Lent 4 – John 6:1-15

Monday, March 28th, 2011

Walther’s Gospel Postil takes a different tack on the multiplication of loaves and fishes. He focuses on the last couple of verses where the people try to take Jesus and make Him king by force. The title of Walther’s sermon is “Even Now Many Want to Seize Jesus and Make Him King”. Here are a […]
