October 31, 1517, is one of the most significant days in Church History. The Reformation was a recovery of many important theological ideas and the return to the gospel of Jesus Christ found in the Bible—our ultimate authority.
Martin Luther stands out as the spark in the powder keg of the Reformation. He nailed “The 95 Theses” to the door of the church in Wittenberg on October 31, 1517, which is recognized as the event that started the Reformation.
One of the influencers of the Reformation, John Wycliffe radically believed that Scripture should be accessible to the everyman and, therefore, translated into English. His story reminds us that the Holy Spirit works in the hearts of those who engage with God’s Word.
