and authorities, he made a public spectacle of
them, triumphing over them by the cross.

the heart and said to Peter and the other

gift of the Holy Spirit.

...in the days of Noah while the ark was being
built. In it only a few people, eight in all, were
saved through water, 21 and this water
symbolises baptism that now saves you also—

pledge of a clear conscience toward God. It
saves you by the resurrection of Jesus Christ,
who has gone into heaven and is at God’s right
hand—with angels, authorities and powers in
submission to him.
