In this episode, we quickly review Luther’s letter regarding the question of whether the King of England should be free to divorce the Queen. In this letter he deals with differences and conflicts within and between divine law and natural law, as well as Moses’ civil law for Old Testament Israel and the positive law of the 16th century as it relates to marriage and divorce.
