Working on my next teaching on the “secret wisdom” of God.  Discovered this great quote from Augustine:

But if Christ had not been put to death, death would not have died.  The devil was overcome by his own trophy, for the devil rejoiced when, by seducing the first man, he cast him into death.  By seducing the first man, he killed him.  By killing the last man, he lost the first from his snare.
