Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

The first and chief article is this: Jesus Christ, our God and Lord, died for our sins and was raised again for our justification. He alone is the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world, and God has laid on Him the iniquities of us all. -- Martin Luther, Smalcald Articles, II, I:1-2
