How God’s Word is True

The Author of Salvation took on flesh

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. And God saw all that He had made, and behold, it was very good. But, through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned.

It was fitting for Him, for whom are all things, and through whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to perfect the author of their salvation through sufferings.

Therefore, since the children share in flesh and blood, He Himself likewise also partook of the same, that through death He might render powerless him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, and might free those who through fear of death were subject to slavery all their lives.

We rejoice that in our Creator and Savior, we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace.

– Genesis 1:1, 31; Romans 5:12; Hebrews 2:10, 14, 15; Ephesians 1:7
