Christ and His Church in the Book of Psalms (Bonar) - Reformation Heritage BooksThe reason of this notable change in the practice of the faithful must be that they do not understand the Psalms. It is for the use of the laity, principally, that I have undertaken this translation, at the same time that I cannot help thinking that it will prove a useful Book to the clergy also; as it will prove much more readable, and the explanation more unbroken than in the original which is encumbered with endless disquisitions on Hebrew roots, and different versions and readings, as well as the defense of the Vulgate, which the Cardinal avows was one of his principal objects in undertaking the Commentary. Divested of such discussions, the clergy, I am sure, will find greater pleasure in recurring to the pure, unbroken Commentary, from which the quantity of Greek and Hebrew lore in the original was sufficient to deter most of them. I have therefore, substituted the simple, substantial headings in the Douay, for the elaborate and learned disquisitions of the Cardinal, in the hope of making the book more readable and more attractive to the laity.

Who are these? What we learn from his questioning cry is that our great High Priest knows what it is to be tempted as we are Hebrews 4: We therefore trust without fear on the word of Him who cannot deceive. Lest thou again shouldest tarry in the mountains, he at once addeth," Even so the Lord standeth round about His people:" that thy hope might not lie in the mountains.And how is this captivity of Sion a shadow of that Jerusalem. It is not unlikely that Heiko Oberman is correct in suggesting that this omission is a conscious decision of Luther which is based on his conviction that the end times were at hand, making quite superfluous applications to a return of Christ in the far future! We are as it were shepherds unto you; but beneath that Shepherd we are fellow-sheep with you. And the Reformers did likewise.

It might seem odd at first that anyone should still show interest in Luther's Dictata , his early lectures on the Psalms. After all, these lectures of sometimes referred to with perhaps a bit of condescension as Initium theologiae Lutheri the beginning of Luther's theology contain much that Luther would leave behind as his theology developed through study and controversy. For example, he still shows a kind of "monastic orientation" to his thinking in his emphasis not so much on faith in Christ as on humility-admitting God is right in his verdict-as the prerequisite for any righteousness that can come by faith; or there is the careful distinction he makes between peccatum malitiae and peccatum ignorantiae malicious sins and sins done out of ignorance , or again his accepting reference to the "spark" syntaresis of life that remains not only in the human intellect but also in the will--all vestiges of a medieval theological apparatus which, eventually, Luther would for the most part discard. Among these remnants of a past Luther needed to leave behind, it has been assumed, is the exegetical approach to the Psalms which he presents in the "Prefaces" to those early lectures. In our brief time together, I would like to present for consideration a number of points pertaining to Luther's Christological reading of all the Psalms. Luther means far more than that certain psalms can in some way or another be applied to Jesus and his life. For Luther, the letter-the literal meaning of the text, the primary Spirit-intended meaning-refers directly to Christ.
While Luther further condemns the practice of inventing four "senses" which have no connection with each other except the imagination of the exegete, he specifically commends chhrch own Christological approach in which what is true of Christ the real kernel of the history pertains also to his body the church the real kernel of the allegorical and therefore to the members of the body-the individual believers Luther's tropological or moral sense. The magnificence of great princes is estimated hix their expensive manner of living, put it in man's power, or their distribution of great presents. Because it flourisheth in Christ; f. He replieth: let not the clergy lend upon usury. That we see fulfilled.
Now we must go on. I believe that by now we have all turned to Christ. We have covered twenty-four psalms already; now in this chapter we will cover the remaining seventeen psalms of the first book. Let us look specifically at Psalms 25 to The main purpose here is to show how the saints experience and enjoy God through Christ, especially in the house and the city of God. The subject of the first psalm is the law. But immediately in the second psalm, the subject is changed from the law to Christ.
