One of the goals of the Brothers of John the Steadfast is the creation of reading groups whose intention is to get with a Pastor and read through the Book of Concord. For those people who do not have access to a reading group, it occurred to us that we might try creating an “online reading group” right here on the BJS site.
Pastors reading this — please take the time to reply to any questions brought up on this list, or even comment yourselves on what this section of the BOC means to you.
Each Sunday we will post the readings for the week, broken down into daily readings. Read through the passages yourselves, either using your copy of the Concordia or using the BookofConcord.org website.
For Oct 27th through Oct 31st we are in week 44 in 2008, so according to page xxxvii of the 2nd edition of Concordia, in the middle of the Solid Declaration of the Formula of Concord, starting on page 569 in edition 2.
Monday SD Article III paragraphs 44-56.
Tuesday SD Article III paragraphs 57-67.
Wednesday SD Article IV paragraphs 1-8.
Thursday SD Article IV paragraphs 9-18.
Friday SD Article IV paragraphs 19-32.
Write any questions or comments on the readings for the week below. Please try to keep discussion limited to the readings for this week or topics that grow out of them. Remember, no question is a stupid question, and insights you see clearly may not be evident to others, so write about anything you want regarding these readings!
