The 95 theses were just 95 things that Martin Luther didn’t like about the church. Martin became a teacher and a believer after going from town to town one day and lighting struck hit a tree then he believed god saved him so he became a believer. I think he wrote the 95 Theses cause he was tired of the church doing what they want to do an not pleasing god like a church is suppose to do. The 95 Theses were bad things that the church did.

So after that he went in hiding for a month. Then while he was away the church burned all of his stuff. So when he got back nobody would remember him. While he was away he probably did the best thing anyone could
