Storyboard Text

  • Trouble for the Church
  • Martin Luther and the Scala Sancta
  • 95 Theses
  • 95 Theses
  • Schism (multiple popes), simony (buying church jobs), & indulgences (selling forgiveness), caused reformers to speak out.
  • Five Solas
  • Sola Scriptura (“Scripture alone”) Sola fide: (“faith alone”)  Sola gratia: (“grace alone”) Solo Christo: (“Christ alone”) Soli Deo gloria: (“to the glory of God alone”)
  • The Scala Sancta stairs are important because those are the stairs that Jesus climbed up on the way to his trial before Pontius Pilate.
  • Diet of Worms
  • I cannot and will not recant anything, for to go against conscience is neither right nor safe. Here I stand, I can do no other, so help me God. Amen. 
  • One main idea of the 95 theses is indulgences. Selling indulgences is an abuse of church power because selling indulgences is basically paying church money for forgiven sins. One other main idea is people are made right with God by faith alone.  They did "good works" or works of righteousness to please God.
  • Martin Luther translates the Bible into German
  • The five solas are five Latin phrases popularized during the Protestant Reformation that emphasized the distinctions between the early Reformers and the Roman Catholic Church. 
  • Martin Luther He had been called to Worms, Germany, to appear before the Diet (assembly) of the Holy Roman Empire and answer charges of heresy. He had to this because he defies Roman Emperor Charles V by refusing to recant his writings.
  • Martin Luther spent just under a year in Wartburg Castle in Eisenach  as Junker Jorge. While he was in the castle, he prepared 4 Gospels and he translated the New Testament into the German's language to give ordinary people the opportunity to read God's word.
