Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

The house of Rahab is a type of the church.  You see, just as all the citizens of Jericho were struck down with the edge of the sword, and only those who had been taken into Rahab's house were saved, so the Jericho of this world is subject to eternal destruction, but those who have come into the church will be saved from that destruction. -- Johann Gerhard, On the Church, p. 43.
