Christus Victor

 

‎’Death has become like a tyrant who has been completely conquered by the legitimate monarch; bound hand and foot the passers-by sneer at him, hitting him and abusing him, no longer afraid of his cruelty and rage, because of the king who has conquered him. So has death been conquered and branded for what it is by the Savior and the cross. It is bound hand and foot, all who are in Christ trample it as they pass and as they witness Him deride it, scoffing, and saying, ‘O Death, where is thy victory? O Grave, where is thy sting?’
– St. Athanasius
