The Protestant Reformation was a response to corruption and false doctrine, but it was not the first attempt to reform the church. In this session, Dr. Derek Thomas introduces us to forerunners of the Reformation such as John Wycliffe and Jan Hus.
The Latin phrase post tenebras lux has long stood as a motto of the Reformation. Its stark but hopeful claim shines forth in a culture engulfed by sin. By declaring “after darkness light,” the Reformers understood that only the light of the gospel can overcome the darkness of unbelief. In this session, Dr. Thomas explores what the Reformers meant by this phrase and how it can inform our witness today.
