Jesus: The Death of Death

Think on this little poem by S. W. Gandy for a few minutes. Don't pass over it once you think you got it. Mull it over and then read Hebrews 2:14. And then rejoice and proclaim if you know you have been set free.

He hell in hell laid low,
Made sin, he sin o-erthrew,
Bowed to the grave, destroyed it so,
And death, by dying slew.
Leon Morris says, "Jesus broke the devil's grip on his people when in death he became the death of death" (Morris 1990, 86).
