Jesus der i vores sted overvinder Satan
”His (Jesu) Baptism is a decent into the house of the evil one, combat with “the strong man” (cf. Lk 11,22) who holds men captive… Throughout all its history, the world is powerless to defeat the “strong man”; he is overcome and bound by one yet stronger, who, because of his equality with God, can take upon himself all the sin of the world and then suffers through to the end – omitting nothing on the downward path into identity with the fallen. This struggle is the “conversion” of being that brings it into a new condition, that prepares a new haven and a new earth.” Pave Benedikt den 16., Jesus of Nazareth, p. 20.
