The remaining images and Scriptural references in the mural arose from a desire to represent the work of the Triune God, focusing mostly on the purpose and results of the sacrificial death of Jesus.
On the commemoration of Luther’s death, we at Concordia Saint Paul give thanks for the life of the reformer and for the Gospel that sustained him and inspires us.
