Christ and His Church in the Book of Psalms by Andrew A. BonarIt 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.
