Eating from the Right Tree

So it was necessary that the Word became flesh and lived among us, that He might overcome Satan by the tree of the cross as Satan once overcame man by a tree.  This Word, our Lord Jesus Christ, has dressed us in His righteousness by calling us through the word of the Gospel.…  That Gospel word proclaims Christ as the Tree of Life whose leaves are for the healing of the nations.…  The fruit of this Tree removes the curse from the sons of Adam.  The Holy Spirit has called us into faith by that blessed Gospel of the crucified Lord, that believing in this Word we may eat from the Tree of Life and never die.

Karl Fabrizius, Gottesdienst, 20.4, p. 20
