/ Saints and Elders - Counsels / This dead man is not like others

This dead man is not like others

 

Death was terrorized seeing a dead Man, who did not look at all like the other dead, that had descended into Hades. This Man was not bound by the bonds with which those who were there were bound. Why you the mighty doorkeepers of Hades tremble in His sight? Why do you fear Him so much?
