(00:50) Part I: Law of the Day (Unsolved Murders) - "If in the land that the LORD your God is giving you to possess someone is found slain, lying in the open country, and it is not known who killed him, then your elders and your judges shall come out, and they shall measure the distance to the surrounding cities..." (Deut. 21:1-9) (11:33) Part II: Today I consider another example of lesser magistrates, this time during the Protestant Reformation. The Protestants, named for the official legal protest that they submitted to the Emperor, asked for religious liberty. While after years of conflict the Emperor was able to force nearly all of Germany to submit to Catholicism, one city stood alone in defiance. That city was Magdeburg which, through its lesser magistrates, was able to win its religious freedom.
