“He sent Him into our misery” by Martin Luther

“God so loved us as to be willing to pay the price of His only, dearest Child. Him He sent into our misery, hell, and death, and let Him drain these to the dregs. This is the way to be saved.”

–Martin Luther, What Luther Says: An Anthology, comp. Ewald M. Plass (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1959), entry no. 550, p. 189. Luther was commenting on John 3:16.
