I am going to give my girls a test over the things they have been learning about the Bible so I thought I would post most of the test and see how you would do based on the things I have written over the last few weeks and based on what you already know about this important doctrine. During the last week we have also gone over some of Martin Luther’s ninety-five theses. I have to admit I have never read every single one of them, but now that we have been discussing them I decided to read them through and see if I learned anything new. Have you ever looked at them and read them all? We talk about the ninety-five theses, but do we truly know anything about them. If you want to become more informed about them I have included a link that lists all ninety-five these in English, of course. Not too many can read Latin that proficiently these days.
Go ahead and take the test and see how you do. In a few days I will post the test with the answers, and you can compare your answers with what I have found in my research. You may have better answers than mine, so feel free to post so we can learn together.
