Doctor of the Church Enters Glory on Good Friday

On Good Friday, March 29, 2013, Dr. Francis Monseth, Dean of Free Lutheran Theological Seminary, was received into his eternal home at age 71. He earned an STM and ThD from Concordia Seminary in St. Louis.  He taught systematic theology: the Lutheran Confessions and Dogmatics at Free Lutheran Seminary since 1971.  He was a “steadfast Lutheran” at a seminary that strives to maintain Orthodox, confessional Lutheran theology, while paying homage to its roots in Scandinavian Lutheran Pietism. His teaching emphasized the proper distinction between law and gospel, justification, the inerrancy and authority of the Scriptures, and the efficacy of the Sacraments. He was also active in Lutherans for Life as a writer and speaker.
Here is an example of one of his sermons, based on John 20:19-29, “Peace to you.”
