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 Jan 19th through Jan 23rd we are in week 4 in 2009, so according to the 2nd edition of Concordia, reading about the Ten Commandments in the Large Catechism.
NOTE: The files you are reading were scanned from a print copy of the Book of Concord and lots of modifications have been made. Unfortunately that means that sometimes a character was scanned incorrectly. If during your reading you note a typo, PLEASE bring it to our attention by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and click on the link to report typos or formatting errors. Last week it was brought to our attention that a H was read as In .. we have fixed that.
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!
