|Chapter 1||Paul's Letter to Laodicea|
45. Christ, however, took your shame, your disgrace, your sin, your court, and your death upon Himself, and let Himself be nailed to the cross as a damned, to obtain for all of you freedom before God so that you can walk in honor. He took all your disgrace and shame with Him to the cross.
46. Oh, what was it, that bewitched you – those of you who became alive in Christ – that you now want to surrender yourself again anew to death?.
47. With whom should I compare you that it should strike you as a good throw would a target? Yes, you are like a blighted courtesan, who lives in the city, but is nevertheless the daughter of a good family.
