On his 37th birthday, Martin Luther's thoughts turn to his troubled past. For most of his life, he was driven by fear, striving to earn God's favor and escape the torments of hell. But today, Luther has true peace with God through faith alone in Christ alone - the very peace that Pope Leo X seeks to steal away.

When Martin Luther had officiated his first Mass, he was seized with terror at the holiness of God, like a condemned man ascending the pyre for his own burning. Today, Luther relives that memory in a conversation with his colleague, Philip Melanchthon. All the while, another "pyre" is being prepared for Luther in Worms.
