Melancthon and Luther

Unfortunately I have only time for a short post right now, but on Friday I have a very interesting one on Luther and Melancthon.

Melancthon and Luther

    When Melancthon arose to preach on some occasion, he took the text, “I am the Good Shepherd.”  On looking round on his numerous and respectable audience, his natural timidity overcame him, and he could only repeat the text over and over again.  Luther, who was in the desk with him, at length impatiently exclaimed, “You are a very good sheep;” and, telling him to sit down, took the same text, and preached an excellent sermon from it.


About William Moore

I am a Christian, saved and living by God's grace. I am doing this blog on a book called, "The World of Religious Anecdote," or, as I like to call it, "Christian Anecdotes." The reason why I am doing this blog, on a book, instead of about myself, is because there are so many unedifying things in the world, so that we, as Christians, need to take the world and subdue it for our Lord. I believe and hope that is what I am doing here, in this blog. I try to do my posts twice a week, in order to keep the flow going. I hope you enjoy reading, learning, and sharing this book, "Christian Anecdotes."
