From First Importance, a great daily reminder of the nature of the Gospel:
As the captain of salvation, Jesus Christ in his earthly ministry marched from Sinai to Zion, leading captivity captive. Resisting the way of glory falsely promised by Satan in the temptation, Jesus went the way of the cross, marching all the way to the gates of hell to crush the serpent’s head and to throw open the prison doors.
