9.   THE QUESTION WAS: What book of the Bible was Luther referring to when he said: “I feel an aversion to it, and to me this is a sufficient reason for rejecting it.”



THE ANSWER IS: the Book of Revelations


Here’s what Luther said about the Book of Revelations:  “to my mind it bears upon it no marks of an apostolic or prophetic character… Everyone may form his own judgment of this book; as for myself, I feel an aversion to it, and to me this is sufficient reason for rejecting it.” (Sammtliche Werke, 63, p. 169-170, “The Facts About Luther,’ O’Hare, TAN Books, 1987, p.203)



Here is a terrific article by Dave Armstrong, whose research and writing has illuminated the Catholic perspective of Martin Luther.
