are firmly convinced about our Lord, who is truly of the race of
David according to the flesh, Son of God according to the will and
power of God, truly born of a virgin,. . . He was truly nailed to a
tree for us in his flesh under Pontius Pilate. . . He truly suffered,
as He is also truly risen.
honor be to you, my Lord Jesus Christ. On the third day you rose from
the dead and appeared to those you had chosen. And after forty days
you ascended into heaven before the eyes of many witnesses, and there
in heaven you gathered together in glory those you love, whom you had
freed from hell.
