Today In Luther’s Life

April 3, 1507: Martin Luther was ordained as a priest in the Catholic Church in Erfurt, Germany. Martin entered the monastery, as many others had to find a way to make atonement for his sins before God. In the monastery, he became a student of the Bible where he ultimately found what he was looking for. His study and his speaking out on what he learned would affect not only his own life but the history of the entire world. Tomorrow we will start to see what affect this had on the life of a nun named Katharina von Bora.
