The Comfort of Christ’s Suffering
On April 5, 1519, Martin Luther sent a copy of his essay titled “A Sermon Concerning Meditation on the Holy Sufferings of Christ” to his friend George Spalatin. Within five years it had been published in 24 editions. It was enormously popular. It was translated into Latin in 1521. Later, when Luther put together helps and sermons for preachers, it was included as the sermon for Good Friday in the Church Postil of 1525.
This translation is based on the English translation that appeared in a 1906 collection of Luther’s writings titled Lutherans in All Lands. An alternate translation may be found in the American edition of Luther’s Works, Volume 42.
