Son of Iniquity – Episode 2: The First Resistance

Listen to Episode Duration: 9.38

Before he became an earth-shattering theologian, Martin Luther was on the path to becoming a lawyer. But after being struck by perhaps the most influential lightning bolt in history, his life was forever changed and the world would get one less lawyer.

In this episode we look at Luther’s early life, and look at his first rebellion; that against his parents.

“You parents can provide no better gift for your children than an education in the liberal arts. House and home burn down, but an education is easy to carry along”

– Martin Luther
