Revelation 11:8

And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.
Read Chapter 11


AD 735
Sodom: That is, &quot;silent and dark,&quot; having forsooth neither the light of faith, nor the voice of confession.
